Kentucky Easily Trims Aggies in Listless ClashAirtight defensive work and a snappy passing attack helped the Kentucky Wildcats to a 32-14 cage victory over the Mississippi Aggies at municipal auditorium here last night. Consistently baffling the Aggie inner works with their offensive tactics and displaying a pair of accurate goal shooters in Spicer and F. McGinnis the Kentuckians took an early lead which they maintained throughout the first half and increased in the second period.
Harris and Holiday, star Aggie forwards, were covered at all times and were able to find the basket for a single goal each. McElveen, Mississippi center, put two through the loop to complete the total of four field goals which represented the Aggie accomplishment of the night.
Milward, lanky Wildcat center, was leader of the fast passing attack used by the visitors to work their way within shooting distance of the goal. F. McGinnis as weal as Spicer and L. McGinnis also aided materially in outstepping the Aggies.
Coming back with a rush in the second half the Wildcats slipped a damper on all Mississippi's efforts to score and allowed them not a single goal from the field in the last period. The Aggies remained very much in the contest, however, putting up a fierce battle for possession of the ball.
Numerous fouls were inflicted a total of 24 being called. Neither team showed to any advantage at the free tosser, only ten being counted by both teams.
The Aggies were wild with their shooting and failed to display their usual floor game. McElveen came through with some nice work at center, as did Collum at guard, but they were unable to successfully penetrate the stiff Kentucky defense or stop the visitors offensively.
