RULE OF THREE The basketball season of the Women s team closed with their victory over Fairmont on February 26 . Thus , by the rule of three , the season is ended . Just as the team had discovered the secret ot winning games , just as they had become able under the excitement of actual contest to work together to win , the rule of three quietly went into operation , and there were no more games in which to use and perfect the skill they had attained after constant and hard practice . What is the rule of three ? Any girl interested in basketball could tell you . It is the rule which limits women s intercollegiate athletics to three games a season , only one of which may be played off the home court . What is the purpose of the rule of three ?
