Georgetown, 23; St. John's, 16.
Coach Rice's quint, although not as
speedy as that of Coach Collflowcr, or
Georgetown, is considered one of the
fastest aggregations of the District. In
tbclr clash with St. John's tonight, the
Brooklandera ill try to repeat the
performance of Georgetown last night;
at least a close game Is expected, and
the rivalry will be keene.
The mest rotable feature of the
Georgiown-St. John's fiasco was prob
ably the improvement In team work of
the Hlllioppers. In the game with New
Tork UnHersIty last week the Blue and
Gray won by a substantial margin, but
the former team was of a low caliber
and th victory was not a matter of
much pride to the winners. Lack of
team work by the Hilltoppers In the
game was noted from the beginning,
and It was felt that they would not
stand much of a show against a team
with any kind of speed.
During the first fifteen minutes of play
there was little scoring and what points
were -registered came almost alternately
to the rival forces. At the ending of
thl time the count stood S to 7, In favor
cf the Brooklynltes. Then Georgetown
put on some steam and ran its total up
to 12 before the -whistle blew for inter
mission. At the outset of the second portion of
the game the contenders again went at
it In a hammer-and-tongs style, but the
Georgetown players by shooting better
and guarding more carefully, kept grad
ually getting a little farther in the van.
A dash that netted three baskets, with
only about two minutes to go, gave the
locals an advanagc that St. John's
could hardly hope to overcome, but It
kept-JJP the' fight ta. the .blast from the J
umer nailing me nosuuues.
Georgetown's all-around work was of
high class, and it might be said that it
was the best showing a five wearing the
Blue and Gray has made In the pact two
seasons. There could be no criticism of
the way In which the ball was handled,
it being clean, fast, and heady, and
every one of the players shone In de-
"While some of the baskets made by
the Hilltoppers were from bad angles
and long distances, these shots were
made only when they were really neces
sary. TValdron and Campbell rang up a
couple each that brought forth the ap
probation of the crowd, which was one
of the largest that has attended a bas
ketball contest here this year.
Tracy was the principal performer for
the tribe from the city of trolleys, and
but for him the St- John's quint would
have been much more badly worsted.
He was responsible for twelve of the
points that his team scored, and stood
well above his teammates in ability In
every department. Line-up:
