Invaded the University of Cincinnati quintet's domains and return- ed the next day with the long end
of a 39 to 24 score safely tucked away
under their belts. This was the open
ing game of the season and any who
had grave fears as to whether the
Wildcats had built up a strong team
this season after the almost complete
dismemberment of last year, had them
dispelled.
Captain Zerfoss put up a great
game at forward and scored 16 points
for his team. These were all field
goals. His side partner did even better in point of scoring and counted 19
of the 34. Schrader and Gumbert
both put up great defensive games.
The line-uand points scored follow:
Kentucky
Zerfoss, forward, 16;
Hart, forward, 19; Server, center, 2;
Schrader, guard, 2. Gumbert, guard,
Ireland substituted second half.

Cincinnati Justice,
forward,
'Herrington, forward, 6; Kahler, center, 8;

Hart threw eleven out of eighteen
fouls. Cincinnati got eight of seventeen fouls.

The girls' basketball team will leave
tonight for Winchester to engago the
Kentucky Wesleyan team of that city
tonight in the opening game of the
season, the Margaret College game
having been called off on account of
the teams being unable to agree on
the rules to be used. This game also
had been scheduled for Friday night,
but the Winchester girls could not
procure the floor for that night.
The delay in opening the season
was probably a good thing for State,
as practically a new team will go on
the floor tonight and the extra time
was needed for practice. Under the
tutelage of Coach Bill Tuttle a
has been developed, who
are expected to go through the season
without a defeat.
The team has not yet been picked.
though Miss Heller, as captain and
center, and Miss Innes, as manager
