Willi Carey Feeding Ball to Them, Wildcats Run Rough Shod Over Volunteer Five JENKINS GETS 17 POINTS Kentucky's invasion of the South successful in every way, and every one is highly pleased with what they did. That the Wildcats arc a chnmiponship team is not to be doubt edt However, for the sake of all concerned, hero is what they did to Tennessee on Saturday night in the Volunteers' own back ynrd. To quote the papers of Knoxville, here is tho story: "There was no gnme tonight, merely an exhibition. The Vols tried hard to stem the tide of the Blue nnd White success, but nil in vain. Tho Kentucky defense, employing Captain Carey at staionnry guard and tho four ponies racing over the court, with Carey feeding them the ball, broke through for crip shots galore and were never forced to attempt long shots. The Kentucky defense, however, forced the Vols to resort to long hpaves, and these met with little success." In speed, floor work, shooting nnd all departments of the game, the Vols were outclassed.
