State University basketball prestige
suffered quite a setback last week
when Vandy's Southern championship
aspirants took two games on Friday
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

Basketball enthusiasts learn with
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
State will more than likely start
the game with this line-up- :

center; Gumbert and George Zerfoss,
Coach Hinton, the popular and efficient director of athletics at Georgetown will handle the game.
