UNIV. of LOUISVILLE LOSES ONE TO WILDCAT FIVE
Third Team from Falls City to Be Defeated This Year by Blue and White Quintet
SCORE 22 TO 17 In a close hard-fought game, the Varsity five nosed out the team from University of Louisville, Saturday evening on the Auditorium floor, 22 to 17. For the third time this season State has trimmed a team from the Falls City: the Y.M.C.A., the Y.M.H.A. and the U of L quintets represent the best Louisville can offer in basket ball lines, and all three have met defeat at the hands of the Wildcats.
The work of Tuttle and Scott at guards, and the sure shooting of Preston landed the decision for the Blue and White.
During the first period the visitors failed to make speed with the baskets, and by the end of the half, were barely on speaking terms with the hopper. The home boys were copping favors every minute and when the whistle busted the Wildcat five was favorite at 16 to 8.
There was a lull in the conversation during the first few minutes of the second half, and the evening's entertainment began to drag. It was the Cardinals who livened things up, and in a brief period had become plumb intimate with the old dip net. From then on, the visitors pushed the Wildcats for honors, and it was only by strenuous come-back tactics that the Blue and White five retained their lead, and finished winner.
Rodgers , of Louisville, played the best all-around game for the visitors, and big Walker's work was especially good.
As a curtain raiser, the Sophomore and Freshman Aggies pulled a rough mix-up that went to the Sophs by 11 to 7.
Game Writeup - Lexington Herald
LOUISVILLE DEFEATED BY STATE UNIVERSITY
Falls City Visitors Lose Basketball Game by Score of 17 to 22
In one of the hardest fought games of the local season the State University five was victorious over the University of Louisville team on the auditorium floor last night by the score of 22 to 17. It was the third time that State has met Louisville teams this season and the result has been three victories, the other victims being the Y.M.C.A. and Y.M.H.A. teams.
The first half was decidedly State's as the visiting team did not seem to hit their stride, and the period ended 16 to 8 in favor of the Blue and White.
The second half started in a sort of listless manner, neither team playing much ball, but Louisville waked up after about three minutes and for a short while played the State boys off their feet and came near tying the score, at one time only two points separating them. But State rallied in the final two minutes and made it three more points to the good just to clinch the matter.
Preston played a whirlwind game for the local boys, while Tuttle probably should come next for almost as much praise for his great exhibition of guarding. Several of Louisville's goals were made from difficult chances. Rodgers being especially good at the long shots, and he, with Henry, played the bet ball for Louisville.
As a preliminary to the real contest, and to furnish entertainment while the crowd was gathering, the sophomore team and the freshmen Aggies played a rough and tumble contest, the sophomore winning by the small score of 11 to 7.
