Defeats Kentucky University in Rough Game Before a Large Crowd - Score 41 to 25
In a rough and scrappy game fought desperately to the end the Cincinnati Varsity basket ball team defeated the Kentucky University five by the score of 41 to 25 on Cincy's floor yesterday afternoon. One of the largest crowds that has ever been packed in the local Gym was present to see the game.
It was the first time this year that Coach Inott's bunch performed at home and Kentucky, although game to the end and were hard workers, was simply outclassed. The whole Cincinnati team played well with Tiny Moore, McMinn and Eastman holding up the sensational part of it. For the visitors, Plummer played a very sensational game, and during the latter part of the second half his work was well applauded. He threw four field goals in less than three minutes of playing and each one was after a very difficult toss.
Barbee also played a fair game for the visitors, but lost in popular favor when he assaulted Tiny Moore, of the local team for some uncalled-for reason.
Eastman was knocked out once in a scramble and so was Plummer, but neither were hurt very seriously. The score at the end of the first half was 22 to 7 in favor of Cincinnati. The next game Cincy plays will be with the Transylvania College of Lexington, Ky. at Cincinnati.
