Game Writeup - Louisville Courier-Journal
Adkins Stars For WildcatsUniversity of Kentucky, last year's southern basketball champions, playing in championship form, swamped University of Louisville last night at the St. Xavier gymnasium by the score of 38 to 14. The Wildcats completely outclassed the local boys and made a runaway affair of the first half, the score being 22 to 2 at its conclusion.
State presented a fast passing game coupled with accurate shooting and wonderful defensive work which had the locals on the run throughout. Adkins, the lanky Wildcat center, was the main cog in State's scoring machine and he contributed a total of sixteen points which was more than the entire Cardinal squad amassed. The big boy was easily the star of the evening, and his goal shooting was a treat to the large crowd which witnessed the fracas.
Capt. Lavin, besides playing a wonderful defensive game, contributed the most spectacular shots of the evening, shooting two beautiful baskets from the center of the floor. K. King and W. King played a nice floor game and divided eleven points, the former carrying three nice baskets, while the latter's deadly foul shooting was almost perfect.
The Cardinals, although outclassed from the start, battled gamely and towards the end of the game played the Wildcats to a standstill.
Yager, Silverstein, Jones and Hocker were the pointmakers for the Cardinals. Yager leading with six. Yager also played a nice floor game and was the Cardinals' best bet.
