Kentucky, With 8 Players Scoring, Whips Chicago 58-26
Maroons' 7 to 6 Lead Erased by DeMoisey Who Makes 24 Points
Chicago, Dec. 30 (AP) - Paced by Johnny DeMoisey, who scored twenty-four points, the University of Kentucky's sensational basketball team swamped Chicago today, 58 to 26.
The Maroons held on for about five minutes and worked up a 7 to 6 lead, but DeMoisey found the range and the rest of the Wildcat team followed him to an easy triumph. In their efforts to stop DeMoisey, the Maroons lost track of the rest of the Kentucky sharpshooters, and eight men broke into the scoring.
DeMoisey's collection included ten field goals and four foul goals. The contest was fast and rough, a total of twenty-nine personal fouls, seventeen against Chicago being called.
The Kentucky system of mixing up its centers and forwards, combined with superior height, had Chicago puzzled all the way. Forest Sale started at center and on occasions DeMoisey went in to jump. In the second period, George Yates replaced Sale and the latter went to forward, where he appeared to be just as much at home.
Midway of the last half Coach A.F. Rupp of the Kentuckians began sending in second team players, who more than held their own against the Maroons.
The Wildcats opened the game by scoring six points before Chicago got started, then eased off. The Maroons went into a one-point lead, but DeMoisey got stared again and the rest of the game was a romp. Kentucky led 33 to 15 at the half.
Kentucky profited by its advantage in size from the start. DeMoisey opened the scoring with a foul goal and a moment later tapped in a field goal from under the basket. He added a one-handed shot from the side and Johnson made it 6 to 0 with his foul shot.
The Marooons then made their brief flurry, only to have the Kentucky outfit go wild and fire in field goals from all over the big court. Chicago's guards broke up the Wildcat passing attack for a few moments in the second half, but against DeMoisey broke loose, collecting four field goals on one-handed shots from beyond the foul line.
Whenever DeMoisey took it easy, Sale, Lawrence and Davis did the shooting and scored nine times from the field among them. Keith Parsons and Pat Page Jr., were the only Chicago players to do anything sizeable in the way of scoring, making eight and six points, respectively, largely through long, desperate shots.
