1 By Russell Rice
UK Sports Information Director
Women have been playing basketball almost from the game’s inception; in fact,
1 Maude Sherman, first of the ladies to play the game, married Dr. James Naismith,
who introduced basketball at the International YWCA Training School in
1 Springfield, MA, in the autumn of 1891.
` In Kentucky a few years later, girls began playing the new game on "Miss Nettie’s
Lawn" in Lexington and in match games on some of the state’s college campuses.
The first basketball game in which collegians in Kentucky competed against
someone outside their campus was played Feb. 4, 1901, when teams from the Art,
Bible, Law and Medical schools of Kentucky University (now Transylvania
University) selected a squad to represent that institution the following night against
the Lexington YMCA.
Basketball that year, consisting of some Friday night games at the YMCA and
student exhibitions for fun and amusement, was described by the KU yearbook as
"very popular with both the young men and young women."
. The men students of the College of Liberal Arts and the College of the Bible at KU
played three match games that year while the young women also organized first
and second teams and played match games. There were also match games that
summer between school and playground teams in Lexington.
Women’s basketball at the University of Kentucky, then known as Kentucky
State College and not to be confused with its parent Kentucky University, started
off near-equal but subservient to the men's game, which in itself was considered
merely a winter pastime between football and baseball seasons and of less im-
portance than debating, gymnastics and the glee club.
The first collegiate game involving a basketball team from the University was
played Feb. 6, 1903, when the KSC men met the Georgetown men on the State
College gym floor in Barker Hall, where spectators sat on a circular mezzanine track
containing three rows of chairs.
On the following day, girls at State College, under Coach Jane Todd Watson,
engaged in a match basketball game at the gym. Twelve days later, a large crowd
attended another match game between the girls, and an upcoming game between
the KSC and KU girls was taking the attention away from a game between the boys
at those two institutions.
The State boys lost their game to KU, 42-2, but the girls, playing before 500
spectators the following day, defeated the KU girls, 16-10, in the first intercollegiate
game between gir|s' basketball teams in Lexington.
The State boys lost their first four games of the following (1904) season and
finished with a victory over Cincinnati while the girls won both their games,
defeating Georgetown, 14-10, and the Jessamine Female Institution, 28-1.
The day after their victory over Georgetown, the young ladies filed into the State
chapel, gave their yell and counted in unison to 14, their winning total. They bolted
for the door when President Patterson took the stand and said the spirit displayed
did not exactly fit a religious service.

 Giving the girls an "A|| Hai|," the Kentucky noted, "Successful from the start-
two years ago-basketball as played by girls caught not only the student, but the
public favor as well, and every game played drew an enthusiastic house which
packed the standing room to the doors—an appreciative crowd of fe||ows—mad—
riotously mad, over contests abounding in snappy spectacular p|ay." g
The yearbook also devoted a full page to an article, written by a male student, l
about the Georgetown game. The author referred to the girls as "fair i
Amazons . . . presented to our penetrating stare devoid of all unnecessary weight
and curves, and bravely facing the front in skirts barely reaching the ankle. Very
bareIy." J
He wrote of how the porters rushed onto the gym floor after the game and made
haste "to remove from the vulgar gaze of the public basketfuls of various articles  
consisting chiefly of buttons, beautiful sleeve buttons and other buttons, hairpins,  
pins and other pins, vari—colored ribbons and the unknown scattered remains of  
much cherished voodoo strings." Q
That was the year a student named Herman Scholtz dressed as a girl and went to  
Georgetown with the State girls, obviously with their connivance. The heavily  
veiled Scholtz watched much of the spirited contest, forbidden to all males except i
those in an official capacity, before the girls noted large brogans sticking out from  
under his dress and started giggling. Scholtz, ejected from the gym, received a  
general reprimand. l
The Scholtz incident, the chauvinistic write—up on the Georgetown game, and (
the KSC president’s reaction to the girls’ enthuasiasm point up mores of the time
that undoubtedly had much to do with the eventual decline of women’s basketball
at the University.
However, the progress of basketball in general at KSC was slowed because of
inadequate facilities—too many different organizations sought to be accomodated

 j in one bui|ding—|ack of practice time, substandard coaching and the fact that
  intercollegiate games were difficult to arrange because few schools had organized
l In 1907, for instance, there are records of only two games, both intrasquad af-
fairs, being played by the gir|s’ team coached by Thomson Bryant, who earned his
third varsity letter with the men that year.
, Bryant, who still resides in Lexington after retiring several years ago as an
  agricultural specialist at UK, feels they must have played some games outside the
  campus, but he couldn't remember specific foes.
{ "They played hard," he said of the girls, "and we had alittle spurt of interest, but
it kinda died out when World War I came on."
Bryant was succeeded in 1908 as girls' coach by Prof. C. W. Leaphart, a
Missourian whose innovations included a training table in Patterson Hall. After the
girls won all their games that year, the Kentuckian noted that the training table
made the girls "stronger and more enduring."
"Kentucky is just awakening to the fact that basketball is a good, healthy exercise
for gir|s," the yearbook said, "and many small teams all over the state have been
practicing this season."
What was hailed as a major move in the development of women's basketball at
the University occurred in 1910, when the co-eds were withdrawn from the
women's program, run by Helen O. Stout, and allied with the Athletics Association,
a merger that compelled the boys to share practice time and coaching with the girls.
The girls lost their first game that year to Transylvania, 21 -13, and then swept the
remaining games on their eight—game schedule.
The Kentuckian had no record of games played by the girls team in 1911, but
representative schedules of up to six games were played until the war year of 1919,
a period during which the girls had such fine coaches as:
Dr. John J. Tigert, a former football and basketball star and team captain at
Vanderbilt who attended Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship and eventually would
become president of the University of Florida and U. S. Commissioner of
William Tuttle, former UK basketball team captain and football star (1911—12—13—
14) whose six touchdowns and 43 points against Maryville in 1914 are still UK
Jim Park, former UK baseball, track and basketball star and football team captain
whose five touchdowns-rushing against Earlham represent another UK record.
After playing major league baseball and delivering the first home run pitch to a
youthful Bed Sox pitcher/pinch-hitter named George Herman "Babe" Ruth, Park
returned to Lexington and eventually became a noted lawyer and jurist.
After his girls lost to Cincinnati, 19-9, in the final game of a 1-4 season in 1918,
Park wrote: "Then came the University of Cincinnati, led by the gallant Nicholoff
and his gir|s’ rules of warfare. The less said of the game, the better-they sent one
of our guards to the base hospital for five fouls and almost had the entire team
wounded by the same weapon when victory was conceded to them and they went
on their way rejoicing."
Sarah Blanding, former star on the New Haven Normal School of Gymnasium,
who coached the KSC girls three years and then became p|ayer—captain in 1923

 under a young post-graduate student named A. B. "Happy" Chandler. Blanding
eventually would become president of Vassar College while Chandler would
become a tvvo-time governor of Kentucky., U. S. Senator and Baseball Com- -
B|anding's coaching debut was a rough experience as the girls lost to Cum- I
berland, 19-16, and tied the same team, 13-13, before flu claimed center Lillie l
Cromwell. After they lost to Cincinnati, 26-14, flu also took forward Bernice Young (
and Miss Blanding.  
Playing without a coach and two star players, the girls lost to Wesleyan, 18-14, z
and then called it quits after Margaret Harbison was hurt in that game. A
While at UK, the popular Miss Blanding was credited with inaugurating an annual 5
spring meet, a spring exhibition of calisthenic drills and intramural games as regular »
items on the University agenda.
The Kentuckian described Chandler, who prepped at Transylvania and Harvard
before matriculating to Kentucky, as a "|awyer, athletic coach, cosmopolite,
amateur Caruso and professional Romeo."
Coach of the last UK girls team of that era (1924) was Bart Peak, a UK football
(1915) and basketball (1917) Ietterman who would serve many year as a YMCA `
career official and, after retirement, become a Fayette County judge noted for such
punishment ofjuvenile offenders as making them kiss their parents.
That 1924 team swept its 10-game schedule and claimed not only the cham-
pionship of Kentucky, but the championship of the South, since Peabody and
Chattanooga were among its victims.
As the 1924-25 school year got under way, the University senate passed a bill
abolishing girIs’ intercollegiate basketball for that season. 1
President Frank L. McVey, in an interview for the Kentucky Kernel, said  
basketball had proved to be a strenuous sport for boys and was therefore too  
strenuous for girls. He said it was also undesirable to have the university girls  
traveling over the state and throughout the South in order to take part in in- i
tercollegiate sport.
"The trips are very expensive because of the necessity of proper chaperonage
and provision/' he said. "Some very irritating consquences have developed in the
past as a result of intercollegiate games." .
After women "A" and "B" teams began playing intercollegiate competition
again at the turn of the ’70s, the women finally gained varsity status again during
the 1974-75 school year.
They now play a full intercollegiate schedule. Welcome back!

President, Un/vers/ty of Kentucky A
The University of Kentucky has become one of the major institutions of higher  
learning in the United States under the leadership of Dr. Otis Singletary, the eighth  
president of the University.  
Dr. Singletary was named president of the Univesity in August, 1969. He had g
previously served as executive vice-chancellor for academic affairs in the University  
of Texas System and director of the Job Corps program for the Office of Economic `
Dr. Singletary, a native of Gulfport, Miss., holds degrees from Millsaps College
and Louisiana State University.
As president of the principal institution of higher learning in the Commonwealth,
Dr. Singletary is greatly concerned with the University’s role as a land-grant in-
stitution, a "people’s university" accessible to all who can profit from education.
ln the nine years he has been president, the University has grown to where there
are now some 22,000 students on the Lexington campus and more than 17,000
students in UK's 13 community colleges, and the University has become one of the
major research institutions in the country.
Recognition of his service to the University was evidenced by the UK Alumni
Association, which presented to Dr. Singletary its Alumni Service Award—an
honor rarely bestowed upon a non-alumnus of the University.
Dr. Singletary is the author of two books and several monographs. i
A Navy veteran of World War II and the Korean Conflict, he is a commander in
the U.S. Naval Reserve. He and Mrs. Singletary, the former Gloria Walton, have _
three children: Bonnie, Scot and Kendall. _
The Singletarys live at Maxwell Place, traditional home of UK presidents.

j Athletics Director
  The person in charge of all varsity athletics at the University of Kentucky since
j the merger of the men and women July 1 is Cliff Hagan, who has seen and overseen
  vast improvements in all phases of the operation since he joined the Wildcat ad-
  ministrative staff six years ago.
l With the addition of six women's sports, Hagan now has under his supervision a
total of 16 varsity sports involving more than 500 student athletes.
The merger has given the Athletics Association an entirely new dimension and
has meant expanding all facets of the department. On the physical side, new offices
were created in Alumni Gym for some of the sports, while much renovation has
been in progress in Memorial Coliseum, where athletics administrative offices are
Hagan joined the University staff in 1972 as an assistant athletics director whose
primary duty was to create and implement the Blue Er White Fund for 57,000·seat
Commonwealth Stadium and laterfor Rupp Arena.
After being involved in administration for two years, he replaced Harry C. Lan-
caster as director of athletics in July 1975.
A former basketball Al|—American at the University, Hagan received one of his
highest individual honors last May when he became the first former UK basketball
player to be installed in the Naismith Memorial National Basketball Hall of Fame in
Springfield, MA.
The road to that honor began at Owensboro, Kentucky, where he established a
then state high school tournament record of 41 points, which was recently voted
the greatest individual performance by anyone in the history of that tournament, in
leading the Red Devils to victory over Lafayette in the 1949 championship game.
At UK, he played on teams that won 86 of 91 games and an NCAA championship
(1951). The 1954 team, undefeated in 25 ames, elected not to participate in the
national tournament.
— 11

 Hagan set a dozen Southeastern Conference records and an NCAA record of 528
rebounds as a junior. He averaged 24 points a game, led the nation in rebounding, _
and scored a UK record of 51 points against Temple in 1954.  
He was a member of Sigma Nu Fraternity, Student Government, Baptist Student  
Union, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and twice was selected among the top ten j
students in the College of Education. I
After graduating from UK in 1954, Hagan served two years at Andrews Air Force J
Base, Washington, D.C., as a commissioned officer. He led the base to two World i
Wide Air Force championships and won All-Service honors both years.  
During ten years with the St. Louis Hawks, he ranked high among 11 players on ’
the league scoring charts with 12,433 points in 672 games for an 18.5 mark and was J
selected to play in five East-West All-Star games and was named to the NBA I
second A|l—League team twice. He hit over .790 from the free throw line seven years  
- in a row and held the NBA record for most field goals scored in a single quarter (12).  
The Hawks won the Western Division six times during Hagan’s playing career  
there and defeated the Boston Celtics in 1958 for the world championship. Hagan  
was AI|—Pro in the NBA in 1957-62, inclusive.  
He received his M.S. in education from Washington University in 1958.  
ln 1965, a Herbert Hoover Boys Club of America was organized in Owensboro  
and named the Cliff Hagan Boys Club of America.  
He then joined the Dallas Chapparals as player-coach and was selected as the j
1958 Texas Professional Coach of the Year. When he left Dallas, he was only 92  
points shy of a regu|ar—season career total of 15,000 points.  
ln 1974, he was named to the Hall of Fame Magazine’s AIl—America second-team 5
for the 1951-1973 period, to the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel Star's A|I—Time 1
Southeastern Conference first team, and the All-Time top collegiate player in the
State of Kentucky by Inside Kentucky Sports Magazine. In 1975, he was named to
the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame, was inducted into the UK Alumni Association _
Hall of Distinguished Alumni and was a recipient of the University of Kentucky
