Game Writeup - by Joseph Myers, Lexington Herald
Colonels Fly Ahead in State
University of Kentucky Basketeers Lose Only Opportunity for Danville College to be Checked
BILL TOSSES SEVEN IN
The only team in the state that stood any chance of challenging Centre College's right to the basketball championship of Kentucky lost that chance when the Colonels tramped on the Wildcats last night to the tune of 21-10. The game was played on State's floor.
The University of Kentucky five played the best game that they have put up on the local floor this season. Every man played hard and fast. Dishman's husky bulk stood him in good stead against the heavy Centre men. Lavin played another snappy game, standing up against men almost twice his size and weight. Everett was on the job with steam. In the last half when the Centre team tried the old trick of passing the ball under their enemy's goal to kill time, State broke into them with determination and stopped it. Thomas and Zerfoss both played good floor games at forward.
Bell was easily the star of the evening for the Colonels, netting seven field goals. Walden showed up in his close guarding and takes second honors. McMillan was all over the floor but did not have much success with the ball.
Game Writeup - Danville Messenger
CENTRE BEATS STATE AGAIN, OF COURSE
The Centre College basket ball team journeyed to Lexington last night and defeated the State University in a very lively game by the score of 21 to 12. It was the hardest fought game of the season, and the Wildcats of State expected to beat the Colonels on their home floor, but the Centre men were too much for them.
"Matty" Bell, of Centre, got seven field goals and Bo McMillin, as usual, played a good game. The other home boys played an excellent game. This was the second time Centre has beaten State this season. The Colonels beat the Transylvania team by a large score last Friday.
The next game for Centre will be tomorrow evening, when the University of Tennessee will come here to play on the local floor. It is expected that this game will be the best of the season. Centre has not lost a game this season.
