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.
