Game Writeup - Lexington Leader
The game was as close as the score indicates and while Kentucky was never behind, it found its lead tied twice and had to shake off a determined stubborn Volunteer crew all the way. With only a few minutes of play left, the Wildcats were leading by 10 points but the Vols rallied and had crept almost up to even terms with the visitors when the gun ended the struggle.
Carey Spicer, lanky Kentucky forward, hit the hoop consistently to take a leading part in the Wildcats' victory. he was high point man with 13.
The Wildcats departed for Lexington immediately after the game and they will be followed Saturday by the Volunteers who go to the Wildcats' court for a return game Saturday night.
