The game against Wesleyan was a continuation of the Miami game. Cincinnati succeeded in
copping the game 2'5f'Z2, but there was a noted increase of apoplexy among the inhabitants of the
Queen City. Bolton, of Cincinnati, and Halliday of Wesleyfan, were high point men.
Then came Wittenberg and the survivers of this game were led, happy and hysterical, to various
sanitariums by kindly disposed friends. The final score was 4846. Cincinnati had won four Buckeye
games by a total point margin of seven markers. Captain Bolton was a tower of defense and stood
head and shoulders over his mates in the scoring with fourteen points, The game made the Bearcats
favorites to cop the championship.

ff? NCE again it can be set down how a Varsity team went out and did divers things which
eventually led to no less a climax than the championship of the Buckeye Association.
Dagwfidf The call for basketball was answered by a hoard of ambitious oval tossers. The team
started the season minus the services of the great Ethan Allen, peer of athletes, but withal it was a
doughty brigade of warriors who lined up for Cincinnati in the first game against Cedarville. The game
was a walkaway for Cincinnati, every man on the U. C. seeing service during the game. The second
game against the local Y afforded the Bearcats their first real test of the season. The iinal outcome
of the game was 3863, with our boys on the right side of the scoring ledger.
During the Christmas holidays Varsity engaged in three tilts which put them in exactly the right
fettle for the start of the B. A. A. campaign. The orange and black of Princeton was seen flying
considerably below half mast, as the Bearcats walked all over the easterners. The game drew a large
crowd but was not much of a struggle. L. B. Harrison showed up a great deal better, forcing the
locals to play an extra frame before the latter were able to emerge with a victory by the narrow mar'
gin of three points. The last of the three games against Indiana provided the nrst setfback of the
year for our boys, Bolton was stopped dead by the Hoosier defense, the big ten aggregation winning

The first Buckeye game was a thriller from start to finish. A little overcontident at the start,
the Bearcats were finally lucky enough to come through with a one point victory. Ellis Flax dis'
played a deadly eye for the old hoop, and this kept Cincinnati in the game, as the rest of the team
were rather weak on the offensive,

ning of the second half was forced out of the contest because of a fistic encounter with the Wittenf
berg captain, Bauer. Nearly all opposing centers are inclined to overguard and ride big "Red."
It was Ohio U., the team that had thrown such a scare into the Bearcat camp in the opening
game, who stopped the march of the Red and Black. The Cincy satellites, appeared off form, none
of them showing up well on the offensive except Dick Dial, who played the best game of any of the
Chambersmen. The score was 4663.
The defeat failed to discourage our boys who came back to hand Wesleyan the second defeat
of the season and clinch the Buckeye title, 3166 Red Bolton headed a stonewall defense that proved
entirely too much for the hostiles.
With the title safely stowed away, and minus the services of "dead eyed" Flax, whose accuracy at
long shots had become the terror of the Big Six, the Bearcats let down a little. They entered the last
tilt against Miami a little bit stale. Franz, playing in Flax's place put up a brilliant game, but his
failure to freeze the ball in the last few minutes of play enabled Leahy of Miami to sink a long one
for the deciding margin. It was another one point victory, Z-9f3S, but it counted for little so no one
was very worried.
The final game of the season was played with St. Xavier, as the feature of the dedication of the
splendid new field house at Corcoran Field. Evidently stale, and handicapped by the large floor, the
Bearcats succumbed in the last few minutes of play, the Musketeers emerging with a win, 29f25. The
guarding of McGrath of Xavier was a feature. Bolton and McGrath shared the point honors.
The season was a great success. It marked Bolton's last year on the Bearcat quintet, but def
veloped some flashy new stars in Franz, Flax and Popp. Bolton was a unanimous choice of the experts
for All-Buckeye center, several other Varsity players vieing for honors.
