STATE DEFEATS TRANSYLVANIA
Basket Ball Season for Kentucky Colleges Closes With Score 30 to 24
The basketball season for Kentucky colleges has closed Friday night, and a crowd of more than five hundred witnessed the hard fought game between State and Transylvania Universities which resulted in a victory for State by a score of 30 to 24, and State taking second honors in the basketball field.
This was the third game between the two local teams, State taking two of the three games, each of which was as close and exciting a game as one might wish to see and their total scores for the series stand 70 to 66 for the winners.
In addition to being one of the hardest and cleanest games of the season it was also one of the noisiest as whistles, bells and horns, added to the college yells made a noise that was deafening and sometimes players would hold their hands to their ears to keep out the din.
An incident, which looked for a minute like it would become serious, happened during the intermission between halves. A Transylvania pennant dangling from the gallery, held by a Hamilton College student, was jerked to the floor by a State student. One of the Transylvania substitute players immediately grasped one end of the pennant and that section of the floor was alive at once. Cool heads among the Blue and White men prevented a clash on the floor and the pennant was thrown back into the gallery.
The first honors among the State Colleges were won by Central University and the honor to be decided Friday night was that of second position and each man in the game did his best work throughout the game.
