WINS ONE GAME
State University Basket Ball Five Defeats the Tennessee Visitors by a Score of 20 to 5
The State University basket ball team defeated the team from the University of Tennessee in the Armory at State University Wednesday night by the score of 20 to 5. The game was slow and exceedingly rough though there was better playing in the latter part of the game than there was in the first. For State Post and Barbee played all around the Tennesseans, while Gaiser did good work at center over a taller man. Tennessee never closely approached a field goal during the entire game and their foul line goal throwing was very poor. Welker making five points out of twenty-four fouls committed by State, while State scored six times on fifteen fouls.
The blue and white team was much faster in the second half then the first, when the score ended 8 to 2, and the teamwork was greatly improved in the last twenty minutes. Captain Rodes did stellar work in the last part of the game and made more than enough points to win from Tennessee.
