NORMAL FIVE LOSES BASKET BALL GAMETO CAPE GIRARDEAU 32-10 Make Super-Human Effort to Defeat Missouri Teachers Saturday Night—Normal Kept Possession of Ball and Took More Shots Than Winners. • The Normal basket" ball team made a ..superhuman effort Saturday night to defeat'cape Girardeau but to 'no avail.' :'. No previous local team has exhibite"d such fighting and passing as the Carbondale team showed Saturday night. The locals had possession of the hall most of the time .and shot at the ba-sket twice as often- as the visitors but the Normal team .seemed a victim of "jinx" who would not allow the hall to go through the iron ring. Oro the other hand nearly every trial the big Cape players made, was successful. - No team can. stop baskets from .the middle of.the floor and.that is_where Cape got 'most o£ her points. The local team endeared itself- to every Carbondale rooter'by its valiant fight against odds. The team never stopped fighting even after a large part of its-strength was deducted by Doolin's forced withdrawal at the be-. ginning~of the second half. Doolin's patience under the rough stuff -his opponent put up, finally gave out and both had to retire. Carbondale fans are • promised two .more treats this week.
