Last Night's Basketball
Game Was Interesting
* ! Playing like demons until the last
Hy-" hecond of play, displaying just the litWmLf'
tie better teamwork, and being in slight
better physical trim, Lhe Normal hasketball
five last evening defeated the
Y. M. C. A, in one of the best basketball
' exhibitions ever seen on a local
f.oor. Not until the last second of play
Hgr -were the winners decided and then by
He*-' a margin of but one point, the final
score being 26-25. The slightest break
in the last second of play might have
easily changed the score.
Hp?' The game was opened with the Y. M.
C. A. drawing first blood and with the
Y. M. C. A. leading by a 17-11 score at
the end of the first half. Starting or!
Ei / the second half by scoring two conHp:.::
seicntive field goals, giving them a 10Km
point lead, it looked like a sere victory
for the Y. M. C. A. Tightening up their
defensive and making a much stronger
offensive, the Normal machine was
H&- . soon in the lead, and continued to lead
Hs-;-^. until the game was over.
Both, teams displayed good basket
tall for an opening game, but showed
?Ho* n,ov M-orp iust a little rusty in
their team organization. Both team:

The Normal team all worked we-1 toHE-'
gether and showed more preparation.
^ Considering the fact that the Y. M. C.
A. team had never been together before,
every member of the team made
a most remarkable showing. Jeffries
