Game Writeup - by J.A. Estes, Lexington Herald
University of Kentucky Defeats Georgetown Five by 38-23 Score
'CATS TEAMWORK BRINGS VICTORY
Tigers Bring Over Fast Squad of Goal Shooters to Harass U.K. Quintet
The Tiger invaded the lair of the Wildcat Tuesday night, fought and howled as has been his wont for years, and then retreated, beaten once more by his most ferocious and most hated enemy. The felines from Georgetown that met the felines from the University of Kentucky put up a great fight and a brilliant one, but the chain lightning system of floorwork that Coach George Buchheit has instilled into his wards was too much for the visitors and they went down to a 38 to 23 defeat.
The Kentucky team took the big end of the scoreboard at the outset of the contest and held a safe margin until the end of the game, several times doubling the Georgetown score. The battle was fast and furious, the quick passing of the blue and White squad vying with the goal shooting ability of the yellow-sweatered five, the teamwork of the Wildcat with the individual brilliance of the Tiger. It must be admitted that the Tiger squad is of the right material, and if it develops the right kind of teamwork the Wildcats will have to step lively when they meet the Georgetonians in the return game on February 14.
Tuesday night's game brought out no dazzling stars that stood alone in their brilliance. It brought out, however, a couple of constellations that were even more wonderful than any individual would have been.
"Bill" King cut loose and showed that he could play still better than he did last week in the Wesleyan and Cumberland games. "Bill" must have been the hero of the battle, for he tied with Lavin in the passing stunts and tied with Atkins, the lanky center, at goal shooting making 12 points. At least the star from Senior High isn't losing any of the glory that has been given the "famous King brothers," as the newspapers have a habit of calling them.
Adams and Forwood annexed the laurels of the Georgetown sphere slingers. Adams, who is captain of the team, led in scoring with 11 points beside his name, while Forwood was second with eight.
Just before the game was over Coach Buchheit turned loose his second team, which did some fast work, but failed to score against the visitors.
The Wildcats will meet Chattanooga College on the local floor Friday night, and the university girls' team will play the University of Cincinnati girls here Saturday night.
