Tigers Easy for Wildcat Quintet
Georgetown on Defensive Throughout Game and State Wins 25 to 14
The University of Kentucky's annual examination in basketball science for the Georgetown College quintet, alias "The Tigers," was conducted last night in the University gym by Professor Buchheit and his Wildcats, and the suburban team was found lacking, State winning 25 to 14. The Wildcats may have found the first semester exams difficult, but if the Tigers had been chemistry tests, the Wildcats would have earned hundred per cent markings.
The visitors were on the defensive the greater part of the game and centered their attack on Everett, the University pivot man, but the latter responded gamely and kept his numerous guards on the march every minute he was on the floor.
The second team was sent in against the Tiger basketeers near the close of the contest and performed very commendably.
The aggressiveness of Haydon, the splendid defensive work of Smith and Burnham, and the general floorwork of Blakey and Everett featured the game, with Funk, of the visitors, a strong contender for Tiger honors.
Jim Park, Transylvania coach, was chief engineer of the referee's whistle.
