Season Review - Basket Ball (Kentuckian)
The season of 1915 was one of the most successful ever witnessed at Kentucky State. From the beginning the team showed ability and team-work and it was on this account, largely, that we were able to cope with such strong teams as Vanderbilt, Tennessee and St. Andrews.
Nevertheless, we were not able to go through the entire season without defeat, as we have done in the past. Tennessee, Vanderbilt and St. Andrews were able by almost superhuman effort, to defeat us, but for every victory of theirs at our expense there was a corresponding defeat. In the last game with St. Andrews our team-work was good, but we were very unfortunate in locating the basket. This was true on other occasions, notably the first game with Vanderbilt, but very seldom did we know defeat.
We would not think of passing over without referring to that valiant band which is known as "scrubs." We would not call them that for they are but little less than the team. We think it can be safely said that they could make any team in the state "work hard for its living." And then, after all the "scrubs" of today make the team of tomorrow.
It is difficult to pick the star of the season for are they not all stars? In the sixties when General Morgan and his troops were in operation all who opposed him feared the issue and were glad for even a chance to surrender after they had battled with his undaunted band for a short while. Now again there comes Captain Morgan and his men and like the former warrior, to whom monuments have been erected, conquered those who dared to oppose him in athletic battle. To him and his band what better and everlasting a monument could be erected than the fame of Kentucky and its State University and admiration and devotion of those who knew them.
"* * * * But I stood still in the doorway and watched them riding by:
They came; they passed; with shouts and noise in haste they spend along --
Morgan, Morgan, the hero and his band, so big and strong."
