BASKETBALL TEAM WINS.

U. of P. Defeated by a Score of 13 to 11.--1906 Defeats Tufts 1906.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The University basketball team won from Pennsylvania in the Hemenway Gymnasium, on Saturday night, by a score of 13 to 11. The game was vigorously contested throughout by both teams, and very exciting for the spectators. The opposing team lead the scoring at the beginning, and at the end of the first half the score stood 8 to 4 in favor of Pennsylvania. It was only in the closing minutes of play that the University team succeeded in overcoming this lead, so as to win by a margin of two goals.

The victory was due to hard work, rather than to clever playing by the University team. By fair passing the team was able to keep possession of the ball the greater part of the time, but the passing often failed in its chief object of advancing the ball. Frequent chances for goals were lost through the failure of the men to place the ball at once well in Pennsylvania's territory by long throws, instead of making short passes far from the goal. The team was also very weak in attempts at goals from fouls. Pennsylvania played a strong blocking game and did especially well in making free throws.
