Cumberland Beats 'Cats
Haydon Scores 13 of Kentucky's 21 Points
WILLIAMSBURG, Ky., Feb. 26 -- The University of Kentucky basketball ship came to grief on Williamsburg rocks tonight, meeting defeat at the hands of Cumberland College, 30 to 21, in the first game of their Southern trip. The Cumberland quintet is one of the strongest ever turned out and it was no surprise to the local townsmen that the Lexington men failed to walk away with the honors.
The local gymnasium is smaller than the ones in which visitors have been accustomed to play and their passwork and goal tossing was hampered.
Haydon, left behind Wednesday because of faculty action, made a late start Thursday morning, after having arranged things satisfactorily, and arrived in time to save the Wildcats from an even worse fate. He accounted for 13 of the University points.
Adkins, of the locals was injured, but continued in the lineup after a short rest.
