seven games, the Wildcats annihilated the Tennessee Volunteer!
at Knoxvlllc last Saturday night
in an overtime game.
Ellis Johnson, floorguard, was
painfully injured, and will not enter
the Washington and Lee game Friday night. Bronston also playec
great bastketball and was forced
out of the game with four fouls.
Kentucky defeated Tennessee f
few weeks ago, but it was an up
hill battle for the winners during
the entire contest. It will be remembered that last year's great fiv
lost to the Vols in an overtime
Though the Wildcats were unde
feated, the victory was a big surprise for local fans and hope pervades the Big Blue camp for an undefeated season.
Kentucky had their own way ir
the Tennessee fracas leading 27-- 1
at the half. The sensational work
of Greenblott kept the opposltior
in the running and forced the game
into an overtime session:
Carey Splcer continued his scoring spree and has 68 points to hi!
credit for the season. Splcer came
from apparent obscurity to clinch
sixth place by his sensational work
in the Vanderbllt game. Scoring 14
points against the Vols gives him a
ranking behind Perkins of Georgia
Coach Rupp and his men are
hard at work preparing for the
Washington and Lee invasion. This
game is the basketball classic of
the year. Whether the Virginians
are on top' of , the conference or. at
the bottom as they are now, the
glamour and spirit of Washington
rivalry will aland
ways be shown.
Leigh Williams will be back again
with four other stars to entertain
the 4,000 fans who are expected to
fill the Euclid gymnasium. The
1930 team defeated the Generals in
an overtime game, 9.
The victory over Vanderbllt and
Tennessee proves conclusively that
Rupp has whipped a green team into shape, and when the conference
tournament rolls around in three
weeks, Kentucky will be a favored
team to win the title.

years of pugilism in Dixie colleges

the annual tournament Is the largest of its kind in the country.
It is so large in fact, that conference officials, recalling that 40 bouts
were run on the first day of the

rings will be used this year.
There were 11 teams entered in

Mud Is in Store
Groundhog, Seeing Shadow,
May Bring Rain
According to the traditions
handed down to the present generations in the past, students of
the university will have to tread
muddy walks for six weeks longer. Not that the ancestors knew
anything about conditions of the
walks on the university campus.
That is not the assumption. But
those ancestors know, or claimed
to know, much about the profession of weather forecasting.
Yesterday was groundhog day.
According to the ancestors, if
that sleepy-heade- d
the underworld should see his
shadow when he removed himself from his winter abode about
noon time on the second day of
February, woe would be unto
him who yearned for spring
time. If the groundhog didn't
see his shadow yesterday, it was
because he was so thin he didn't
have any shadow.
However, since it hasn't rained
for months in the Bluegrass, mud
is likely to be less consplcious.
If the fact that the groundhog
was able to see his shadow will
cause it to rain in the Bluegrass,
then Kentucklans may thank
their lucky stars that the clouds
cleared away and left a blue sky
on February 2.
