Rising to the challenge of a smooth-playing and vastly improved Chelsea Naval Hospital squad, the Varsity quintet fought hard to gain its eighteenth victory of the season at the Indoor Athletic Building Tuesday evening. The final score of 77 to 54 belies the closeness that marked the first three quarters of one of the best-played games of the year.
