FROM UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI
Basket Ball Game Here Results Disastrously for Buckeye Visitors - Play Transylvania Friday Night
The basket ball team of the University of Cincinnati struck Lexington Thursday only to get a "lemon" handed them by State University in the form of a score of 28 to 23. This is the second defeat that the team has suffered since landing on Kentucky soil, having met a similar fate Wednesday night at the hands of Central University. The game played at the State University gymnasium was quite rough at times fast and at other times slow. During the first half the boys from the Buckeye State scored only five points while the Blue and White team rolled up 17. During the second half the visitors seemed to wake up and played much better ball. The team work of State was superior to that of the visitors and while there were no special stars, McMinn, Cincinnati's center, played an excellent game, throwing five fouls without a miss. The best work for State was by Post and Fox.
The Cincinnati team will play Transylvania University Friday night, while State will meet Central for their last game of the season Monday afternoon.

STATE UNIVERSITY BOYS GET REVENGE
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.
