Defeats Central University in Clean, Snappy Game of Basket Ball -- Score 22 to 9
The basket ball game between State College and Central University which was played in the State College gymnasium Friday, resulted in a victory for the Blue and White, with a score of 22 to 9.
The State College team was considerably handicapped by the absence of Capt. Wilson, who had received such injuries to his knee as to prevent his playing. His absence made it necessary to change Baer from forward to guard and to put Shelby Shanklin in Baer's place. Shanklin made as swift a game from the outset as if he were a veteran.
The game seemed to be in favor of State from the beginning. Their smooth team work was too much for the crimson team and their interference often prostrated the signals of the C.U. team. Central's men seemed never to lose heart for they played a swift, clean, determined game to the very end. Their defeat seemed largely due to their lack of team work.
The State College adherents feel even more confidence in their team now than when they defeated Georgetown a week ago, and express their belief that the Blue and White will carry off the State championship. There was a large crowd in attendance. The college band furnished the music for the occasion.
Between the halves a three-round pugilistic encounter was pulled off between Messrs. J.G. Herman and B.E. Brewer. This resulted in a draw.
