SAINTS DOWN THE WILDCATS
Jansing Proves Star of Fast Contest - Locals Lead All the Way
By defeating the State University basketball team last night at Tharp's Gymnasium by the score of 50 to 25, the St. Andrews quintet evened up the race for the State championship, it having previously been defeated by the Wildcats at Lexington by the score of 37 to 15.
Last night's game was fast and snappy from start to finish, the St. Andrews team taking the lead at the beginning of the contest and holding the advantage throughout the game. However, the game was much closer than the score indicated, the State team at times playing all around the Louisville quintet. These spurts were infrequent, however, while the locals played consistent ball all the way.
The local team got the jump on the Wildcats at the start and scored four field goals before the State five could score. The Saints held this lead and ended the half on the long end of a 23 to 10 score. The collegians braced in the second half and showed the spectators some real basketball, but missed several hard goals and scored only fifteen points to their opponent's twenty-seven.
The work of Jansing featured the contest, the tall center getting ten field goals. Scott and Tuttle played star games for the Blue and White, the latter's work against Seelbach, keeping the St. Andrews star to two goals, being good. Morgan also played a nice game for the visitors.
Tonight the State team will mix it up with the University of Louisville quintet and a lively time is expected, as the Cardinals are very anxious to be revenged on the Wildcats for the defeat handed to them at Lexington. The State and Louisville girls' teams will also play, and two excellent games of basketball should develop. The game will be played at the Y.M.C.A. and will start at 8:15 o'clock sharp.
A fast preliminary game was played between the Immanuel Presbyterian team of Louisville and the Jeffersonville Presbyterians, the Hoosier boys winning by the score of 22 to 17. Louis Williams starred for Jeffersonville, while Meeks played best for the local five.

WILDCATS PLAY TWO GAMES HERE THIS WEEK
St. Andrews Quintet Expects to Even Up Matters in Initial Contest
EXCELLENT basketball is expected to develop on the local floors the latter part of this week, when the State University quintet will invade Louisville for two games. The first contest, which will take place tomorrow night at Tharp's gymnasium, will find the Wildcats and St. Andrews mixing it up, while on Saturday night the University of Louisville team will meet the Lexington aggregation.
The game tomorrow night should be one of the best contests staged in Louisville this season. The State team comes here with a record behind it, having defeated the fast Tennessee five twice in succession at Lexington, which recently handed two beating to the Cardinals, and also having defeated St. Andrews earlier in the season at Lexington. At that time, however, the local team was without the services of Louis Seelbach, who has proven the mainstay of the team in recent contests. With Seelbach in the game the St. Andrews boys claim they will even up matters with the Wildcats.
The Lexington team is considered exceptionally strong this season, as it has four of last year's team back in action. Morgan, the Wildcats' captain and forward, is one of the best in the State, while Zerfoss, at the other forward, is also a good man. At the guards, the visitors will have Tuttle, who led the team last year, and either Scott or Gumbert. The former has been handicapped by illness nearly all season and has not been able to show his true form. Gumbert was taken from the freshman team last year in midseason when the 'Varsity team was crippled and showed great form. At center the State team has Server, who is playing his first year of college basketball, being a freshman in the university. He has been playing a great game for the Wildcats, and his work will be watched with interest by the local fans.
The local team is in fine shape and expects the hardest game of the season in Friday's contest. Capt. Moser will present his strongest lineup against the collegians, and points to the respective records made by the two teams against Vanderbilt when questioned regarding the outcome of the game. A record crowd is expected to turn out to see the State team perform, as this is its first appearance here this year.
