PROSPECTS GOOD
The Wildcat Basketball team will
leave Wednesday night for the S.I.A.A.
tournament which will be s held at At- lanta. The team will bo gone for a
week and during that time will have
the opportunity of proving itself tho
the purpose of the tournament is to
championship quintet of the South as
decide the southern championship.
All the stronger teams of the south
will be represented, among which will
bo Auburn, Georgia Tech, Tennessee,
Vanderbllt and Georgia. It has not yet
been arranged which team Kentucky
Is to play first. The process of elimina
tion will be used.
Tho Wildcats have a good chance of
winning this tournament as they have
already defeated Auburn, one of tho
strongest teams in the Soutlj. Auburn
won from Georgia Tech and Vanderbllt, which gives Kentucky an edge
on those teams. Vanderbllt managed
to defeat Chattanooga by tho scant
margin of seven points while tho lat
ter was swamped by the Wlldcnts.
It is thought that Lavttn will bo ablo"
to take part in tho tournament as his

CHAMPIONSHIP WON

"SAY WHEN"
(Kdltorlul)

The decisive
of Centre by
Kentucky last Friday easily gives the
University the basketball champion
ship of tiro Slate. While it is true that
2tt team has won a game from Its
opponent the fapt that Kentucky won
the latter game and the fact that
Gentre was beaten by a much larger
score, leaves no further doubt as to
the relative merits of the two teams.
Now that Centre has been effectlve- ly disposed bf, our cap is set for the
championship of the South. Probably
the only dangerous contestant for this
honor is the University of Georgia nnd
it remains for the S. I. A. A. tournament, which will be played at Atlanta
the first part of next week, to decide
the winner. In the tournament Ken- tucky will be at a disadvantage, playing on a strange floor and with strange
officials who are accustomed to servo
Georgian teams and who probably expect to continue serving these teani3.
We have not forgotten the mistreatment of Centre by the officials at the
Tech game. Kentucky's
team, therefore, will have the odds
against it but, in the judgment of The
Kernel, it has, even with these odds,
a good chance of bringing back the big
silver loving cup which has been offered by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce to the team winning the championship.
This is the first Kentucky basketball claimant for Southern honors
since the famous team of 1912 and It
Is not Inappropriate fln passing to take
coznizanco of the man behind the guns
to whom the credit is due for develop- dng tho team, Coach George Buchheit.

CENTRE IF WE WIN

S. I. A. A. TOURNEY

In reply to the challenge of Centre
in the Louisville Herald this morning,
Kentucky Is more than glad, in fact"
anxious to play Centre again, if a date
can be arranged for Kentucky is confident of defeating them- - again by a
larger score.
In the article Centre "explains their
defeat" by Armstrong not being able
to play but does not mention that
Lavin, a star guard of Kentucky, was
out the entire last game with Centre
s
of the first
and was out
game, Kentucky having Centre four to
one when he was hurt in the first
game.
The State Championship Is not
claimed by any member of the Athletic
Council and the Louisville paper makes
a misstatement In so stating- - All dope,
however, gives it to Kentucky, and
HInton of Georgetown, who refereed
the last game, stated that pentre was
qut played In every stage of the game.
It seems that Centre Is the one who
Is squnklng like a spoiled baby, NOT
Kentucky.
There will be no need of playing
Centre If we win the S. I. A. A. tournament. Centre has lost, knows she has
lost, why don't she be a sport and
take her medicine like a man.
