THE BEST THAT IS
Rock Island high school came through
the basketball tournament with a clean
record, not a team having a show
against them. Their basket throwing
was good, their team work better, and
the guarding of Young and Steenburg
the feature. Liitt. the local star, was
in his usual good form, while Streck
fus, it seemed, was able to throw
baskets at will -in some of the ses
sions. Brennan, however, was the man
that the visitors could not solve, and
he had the opposing center playing on
the defensive nearly all of the time.
Not having suffered a defeat, the Rock
Island boys will go to the finals. The
place for holding them is not certain,
but it is thought that B'.oomington
will get them. -The
scores far Saturday were as

Rock Island. CI; Mount Carroll, 11.
Mount Carroll. 44; Ottawa, 21.
Ottawa, 27; Kewanee, 2C.
Ottawa Loses Third.
The first game of the afternoon was
between Mount Carroll and Ottawa.
Ottawa was not in its usual good form
and the Mount Carroll boys had a walk
away. Fullerton, the Ottawa captain,
was the only man that could do a
tiling, all of the other men having a
slump. Their defeat was the third for
them, and after the game the boys
were thoroughly disheartened.
The next game for the afternoon was
between Rock Island and Kewanee,
, and was the hardest game that the Is
landers had to play during the tourna
ment. The first half Rock Island had
I a h ad of but six points. The second
half the Islanders took a brace and
won by a margin of 1C points. The
game was hard and fast throughout;
the men from Kewanee fighting every
Ottawa Wins n (lame.
The opening game of the evening
series was between Ottawa and Ke
wanee. The Ottawa boys had thought
seriously of canceling the game be
cause of their three- defeats, every
man bf ing discouraged. But they play
ed, and played a better game than at
(any other time during the tournament.
Because of their hard luck they had the
sympathy of the crowd and every good
play was cheered by the whole crowd.
As the game neared the close and the
score was nearly even, the crowd was
filled with intense excitement, and
when the whistle for time was called
and Ottawa was ahead by one point,
the crowd set up a deafening yell for
the victors. Kewanee played as good
a game as in the afternoon when the
local boys had hard work defeatln
The final game, between Rock Island
and Mount Carroll, was a one-sided af
fair, tne locals trying to roll up as
