Game Writeup - The Idea
CLOSE SEASON WITH VICTORY
BEAT GEORGETOWN IN CLOSE BUT POORLY PLAYED GAME ON THEIR OWN FLOOR
The Wildcats journeyed to Georgetown in company with about 75 State rooters, last Friday night, and as usual, came back with the big end of the score. However, the big end wasn't so very much, the score being 19 to 18 in our favor. The game was slow and as far as real basket-ball was concerned, uninteresting, but the score was so close that interest was at fever heat between the partisans of the two teams. The Wildcats seemed out of form, which was but natural considering the fact that they had played the two hardest games of the season the week preceding, and they seemed to have been a bit overtrained. There could be no doubt in the minds of any person who had seen the two teams perform in any of their previous games, but that we had by far the better team, but we almost let the Georgetown bunch slip up on us.
As usual, we started the scoring, Barnett registering the first score of the game by pitching a beautiful foul in the first minute of play. The first half ended by a score of 13 to 6 in our favor, but it was evident to all the State men that this was not the same team that beat Vanderbilt. This fact was further emphasized in the second half by the fact that during this period we only made two field goals. Barnett threw only seven fouls out of twenty called on Georgetown, while Dawes, for Georgetown, threw fourteen fouls out of eighteen chances. Georgetown made only two field goals in the entire game - one in each half. For State, Harrison and Hart were the stars. Hart threw the longest goal, making on from near the center of the floor.
STATE UNDEFEAT AT BASKET BALL
State proved to be superior in goal throwing and team work, Capt. Harrison and Gaiser being the stars for the university. For Georgetown Dawes was responsible for sixteen of the scores out of the eighteen made by his team and fourteen of these were made on fouls.
