DEFEATS STATE UNIVERSITY 23 TO 18 IN A WELL-PLAYED BASKET BALL GAME
The Transylvania University basket ball team defeated the State University Friday night on State's floor by the score of 23 to 18 in an interesting game. The contest was close from the start, first one and then the other team leading for a few moments by a narrow margin, and the outcome was in doubt until the last two minutes of play, when the Crimson team forged to the head and secured enough lead to clinch the game.
The two teams will likely meet in more games before the season is over, although no other games have yet been scheduled. A return game will be played on the Transylvania floor after the return of the State team from their Northern trip, which begins February 9.
State's next game will be played with Kentucky Wesleyan College at the armory next Friday night. Following this there will be one other game before the team leaves for the Northern trip, which will be played with Bethany College of Bethany, W. Va., at the armory.
Transylvania will meet the Georgetown College five at the Transylvania gymnasium next Monday night. This will be the first of the series of three games between these teams, two of which, the first and the third will be played here.
Transylvania scoring - Ten goals, 2 thrown fouls and one pont awarded on a foul.
State scoring - Seven goals, four thrown fouls.
