Basket Ball Game Won by the Uni
versity with a Score of 20 to 13
Summer Session Seniors
Last Friday evening the university
basket ball team deieatcd the Omaha
V. M. C. A. for a second time this
season. The game was played in the
'varsity armory and resulted In the
score of 20 to 13.
The score haruly indicates the com
parative merits of the two teams. In
a word the Omaha team was far infer
ior to the university team both in In
dividual and team work.1 ,Time and
again their team work was broken up
by the 'varsity team and their only
hope of getting the ball near their
opponent's goal was by long passes.
Only in one respect were the two teams
evenly matched and that was in the
art of fouling. In this both were
equally helped by Pritchard of Omaha
who had the happy laculty of seeing,
imaginary invisable and occasionally
As to the game Itself, it was com
paratively slow, though not in the
least one-sided. It was not replete
with that snap and energy which
should characterize a basket nail game.
Captain Cortelyou should be compli
mented in the manner in which he has
trained his men to guard their indi
vidual opponents and in this they
greatly excelled the Omaha team. The
result of the game depended much
upon the ability of the goal throwers

superior to his opponent, throwing
nine out of thirteen goals, on fouL
During the evening and between
halves, music was furnished by the
Ideal Mandolin Club. An excellent
program waB rendered, very pleasantly

An amusing incident of the evening
may be recorded here In which it
shows that it is not amiss for a captain
of a team to have his wits about him
as it were. In the midst of the play

ever worked for a moment only. The
umpire hesitated looked bewildered,
but before Koehler could throw the
goal he came to himself and announced
the foul on Lincoln.
GAME JJJ VETAJU
1 At 8:24 the teams lined up the
wclUle blew and the game started
with a rush. The ball was rushed
quickly to' Omaha's goal and Cortelyou
threw goal after a half minute play.
The ball was again set in play and
rushed from one goal to the other,
stopping nearly every other play to
throw goals from fouls. After ten min
ute plays, Cortelyou secured the ball
near the center of the field and mado
a very difficult goal. A tew moments
later Koehler repeated the act Omaha
was not to be out-done. Kreher made
a bad throw from out of bounds, Stenn
of Omaha gained possession of the
ball and easily tossed it through the
net Later the Omaha team gained the
ball in the center of a rush, and made
one of the prettiest throws of the even
ing, making a goal from center. Time
was called with score 11 to 7 in favor
of the university.
The second half was .played much
slower, Omaha being able to score 6
points while the university scored 9.
Fouls were the order of the half, and
In this the 'varsity man was superior
to the "Omahog." Time was called
with the score standing 20 to 13 in
favor of the university.
