Defeat University of Cincinnati Team by Score of 28 to 23

Revenge was secured by the cadet basket ball team at State University yesterday afternoon for their defeat some weeks ago at the hands of Cincinnati University's crack basket ball five. The local team defeated the wearers of the red and black by a score of 28 to 23.

Both teams played excellent ball and at times some sensational work was done by the forwards of the Blue and White aggregation. Team work and the fine goal pitching of Shelby Post as well as some fine playing by "Doc" Rodes at guard for the cadets, decided the contest, however, and left victory in the hands of the State's at the end of the contest.

The Cincinnati boys played a whirlwind game, but this was just to the liking of the cadets and within a few minutes after time was called for the beginning of the game they had taken the lead. From that time on until the end of the game it was "nip and tuck" with both teams playing a scrappy as well as snappy game. McMinn, at center, was probably the best for the visitors.
