KENTUCKY VARSITY AND GIRLS BOTH VICTORS
State Girls Take Basketball Game from Louisville by Score of 27 to 16
BOYS WIN BY 18 TO 14
Large Crowd Witnesses the Fiery Contests at Woodland Auditorium
Before one of the largest crowds that ever attended a basket ball game in this city the varsity and girls teams of the University of Kentucky won a double header played against the varsity and girls' teams of the University of Louisville last night at the Woodland Auditorium. By defeating the Louisville girls by the score of 27 to 16, the girls' team the University of Kentucky practically cinched the State championship.
The varsity game was not so closely contested and will not figure prominently in the championship. Kentucky's fast quintette showed unusual ability in passing. In speed and fire the Wildcats showed that they will be in the running for the Southern championship. Each member of the Wildcat quintette was in the game from beginning to end, with Server in the lead on throwing field goals. Louisville hardly had a chance except on free throws. The two varsities led off and the girls' contest closed the evening.
In the second games Misses Hughes, Heller and Taul vied with each other in throwing field goals, with Miss Taul slightly in the lead. the Louisville girls put up a good strong fight, but were unable to make much of a showing against Tigert's fast bunch.
