STATE WINS SECOND GAME
WILDCATS CAPTURE SECOND GAME OF SERIES WITH TRANSYLVANIA
Fastest Game of Season
On last Monday night Kentucky met her old rivals, Transylvania, on the latter's floor. After forty minutes of the fastest kind of basketball, the Wildcats came out victorious, after playing a stubborn uphill game from the first whistle. The score at the end of the first half stood 14 to 10 in favor of Transylvania, but not discouraged the Wildcats came back in the second half and nosed Transylvania out of a victory by the score of 22 to 19. The name Wildcats was justly deserved by "Jake" and his bunch, especially when, in the middle of the second half, the stubborn resistance of the Kentuckians turned the game into a victory for them. "Jake's" head could be seen in the midst of the wild scramble and he succeeded in keeping the ball in T.U. territory most of the time. Harrison was the biggest point getter for Kentucky, caging five field goals. Marx did some clever guarding especially when playing gainst Frances of T.U. Hart was off in throwing fouls but made up for this by his good passing. Harrison played the best game of his career against Frances, holding his man to no field goals, making five himself and outjumping the Transylvania captain nearly every time. Preston played a good game at basket guard and although makng no scores himself, kept his man down.
For Transylvania Maidey played the best game making a total of thirteen points of the nineteen scored by the "Crimson." Foster and H. Tinsley played close at guard, especially the former, who is undoubtedly one of the best guards Transylvania has ever had. Francis was not up to his usual standard and seemed not to get in the game.
The gymnasium, where the game was played, was crowded to the door with supporters, of both the Blue and White and Crimson and the rooting was good, that of Kentucky overshadowing the Transylvania cheering. The work of the officials was exceedingly difficult, as both teams were on edge and both fighting doggedly. Hinton, the referee, did admirable work and is to be commended on his decisions for at times it was hard to discriminate.
The third game of the series will be played in the Armory tomorrow night at 8 o'clock.
