1904 Men’s Basketball – Team Picture

Men’s basketball was established at Oregon State in 1901, ironically a few years after the college had already fielded a woman’s team!  This team picture of the 1904 men’s team shows the “champions” and their two coaches, Mr. Thorpe and Mr. Trine, who led the roundballers to a successful 7-3 season.  Notice the length of the shorts in this picture, which seem to almost go to knee level (something we wouldn’t see again for another almost 90 years).
