OF L. BEATS CO-ED- S State University basketball prestige suffered quite a setback last week when Vandy's Southern championship aspirants took two games on Friday respectively, nights, and Saturday and the University of Louisville girls overcame the State in one of the hardest fought contests ever seen on a local floor. Vanderbilt won from State by the scores of 39 to 25 and 23 to 10, and the girls were defeated 12 to 10, in an overtime game. The score stood 10 to 10 at the expiration of the alloted time, when it was agreed that the first to score two points would win the- decision. Friday night Vanderbilt started with a rush and apparently bewildering the local five by the display of unparalled team work, they threw baskets almost at will. On the other hand State's men were having tough luck with their shots and time after time, as the spectators held their breath, the ball would glide around the edge of the coveted iron ring only to drop outside again and be rushed down the floor to the rival basket. At the end of the half the Commodores had succeeded in securing 22 points, while State was making two field and five foul goals. spirA startling Wildcat come-bacit was displayed in the second half of the affray. Lighter men fought daunt-lesslagainst the heavy Vanderbilt team and played them to a standstill. Superior team work again proved the victor and Vandy made 17 to State's 16 in this latter period. The one man on State's team who was able to locate the basket was Derrel Hart. He sustained the hopes of the locals in the first half by pitching five fouls, as the Commodores were guilty of frequent foul plays. Cody played best for Vanderbilt, scoring 18 of the points garnered by his team. Tom Zerfoss, a brother of George and Captain Karl, who is remembered here for his football ability, as well as starring on the Wildcat quintet in 1914, entered the game during the middle of the last half and made six points. George at guard, accepted the role of guarding his older brother gallantly and the "Inter brother" contest was just about as interesting to the spectators as was the main attraction. The summary of the first game follows: Vanderbilt Cody (18), Davidson (7), T. Zerfoss (6), forwards; Ryer S), center; Turner, Parker, Blair, guards.

C. W. HERE FRIDAY Basketball enthusiasts learn with much satisfaction that definite ar rangements for games with the University of Louisville have been completed. The first game will be played at the Auditorium Saturday night with a return game in Louisville, Feb ruary 22. It was at first believed that the two teams would be unable to agree on dates this season. Louisville has defeated both George town and Transylvania this year and State has taken two from Georgetown, so it appears that the outcome of these two games will decide the championship of the State. Coach Tlgert, as well as the student body, expects a hard and fast contest, as Louisville has one of the strongest quintets gotten together in tke State for some time. Probably their best man is Captain Kornfleld, who plays one of the forward positions. Daniels, center, as well as Terry and guards, are gridiron stars and are especially good at the basket game. State will more than likely start Zerfoss, the game with this line-up- : captain, and Hart, forwards; Server, center; Gumbert and George Zerfoss, guards. Coach Hinton, the popular and efficient director of athletics at Georgetown will handle the game. Centre College will play the Wildcats next Tuesday night. On Friday night the K. C.
