CRIMSON FIVE DUE FOR KEEN STRUGGLE TONIGHT
Strong R. I. State Quintet Will Face University at 8 o'Clock--Freshmen Oppose M. I. T. 1926 One Hour Earlier--Both Games at Hemenway
A strong quintet from Rhode Island State University will invade Hemenway gymnasium at 8 o'clock tonight in the last game for the University players before their journey to Yale next Monday.
Rhode Island is rated as a powerful team this year, having defeated Worcester Polytechnic Institute 35 to 26, while the Crimson has beaten the-same school twice, 28 to 20 and 31 to 28. The Rhode Islanders have also defeated Massachusetts Agricultural College decisively.
The regular Crimson line-up will start tonight.
The 1926 basketball quintet will face the M. I. T. freshmen for the second time this season at the Hemenway gymnasium at 7 o'clock tonight. Although in the first game the Crimson men were overwhelmingly victorious by the score of 28-3, recent scores indicate that the Engineers have improved considerably. They were defeated by the Tufts yearlings in a close contest only 22-18, while the Crimson barely won from the same team by a final spurt, 23-19.
