Time for Basketball--1917
Members of the men's basketball team for Butler University posed for this photo in 1917. The teams struggled through the 1910s and would not become a powerhouse for another ninety years. Behind them, you can see the main classroom building, which was torn down in the late 1930s. They played in a small gym located on the edge of the Irvington campus. Future basketball teams would have the thrill of playing at the Hinkle Fieldhouse beginning in 1928 at the Fairview campus.
