STATE WINS 29-22 FROM GEORGETOWN
Wildcat Basket Ball Team Piles Up Early Lead on Tigers -- First Meeting in Four Years
GEORGETOWN, KY., Jan. 19. -- The State University basket ball team won from the Georgetown College aggregation last night by the score of 29 to 22 in the first athletic contest between the two schools in four years.
Georgetown showed a lot of speed in almost overhauling the Wildcats with a rush from behind after the Blues amassed a lead of eleven points in the early frames. With Server, the Wildcat center, leading the attack, the State five passed over and around the home team and for a time it looked as if it would be a walk away for the Kentucky five. Then the game steadied and both kept up a rapid fire of attack and defense that made the contest thrilling to the crowded gallery. The Blues worked in remarkable form and showed that with more practice they will be on the road to the title.
For Georgetown, Taylor played the most consistent game. Several of the Tigers were sick with the prevalent bad colds and the return game in Lexington promises to be of unusual interest.
