Bearcats Win, Riefkin Stars
FINAL SCORE IS 33 TO 24
Ever so once in a while a star athlete comes to Cincinnati and shines, even though the aggregation he is connected with, goes down to decisive defeat.
The star on the latest trip with a team that was forced to bow down before a local aggregation came here tonight in the person of Riefkin, right forward of the basketball team of the University of Kentucky. The latter crew fell easy victims to the University of Cincinnati five by the score of 33 to 24. The score at the end of the first half was 12 to 10 in the local's favor.
But in the face of the defeat Riefkin was the outstanding player of the entire contest. He made seemingly impossible shots, shooting several fine goals from the most difficult territory the Center of the floor, and made all but two out of 10 foul goals. Poyntz was next in rank to get the honors for Kentucky when he made four foul goals out of four opportunities.
Bailbon played a fine game for the local five, getting nine out of eleven fouls. The Wildcats simply were outclassed by the Bearcats, the local aggregation excelling in every department of the game and being able to handle the ball much faster.
