Ellis and Will Seelbach In Fistic Encounter In the First Half
DANVILLE, Ky., March 11 -- Central University ended her basketball season here tonight by defeating State University of Lexington by the overwhelming score of 51 to 9, after a hard fought and rough game. At the end of the first half the score stood 24 to 7 in favor of the local team, State scoring but two points during the second half.
The rough playing started early in the game and the first half was marred by a fistic encounter taking place between Ellis, center for State and Will Seelbach, of the home team. Gaiser, who started into the game as center for the Lexington team, retired, Ellis taking his place. The latter used rough tactics on his opponent from the start of play, and a lively encounter between the two resulted. Both were ordered from the field, Shawhan being sent in Ellis' place and Dosker succeeded Louis Seelbach, who was sent to center to take the place of Will Seelbach.
During the second half Central piled up an overwhelming score, and all chance for the Lexington team was lost. At this juncture, Rodes of State, who was trying to throw a field goal, was given a clear field by Central, Captain Mason calling to his men to cease play and let the State man get two points. Rodes after making three attempts, succeeded in placing the ball in the basket.
The Lexington team was well received here and their efforts on the field were loudly cheered by the home rooters. The team, as well as the accompanying rooters were courteously received and entertained while in Danville.
