A group of seven male students organized in the winter of 1907 with the intent to compete at the intercollegiate level for the first time, and asked physical education teacher James C. Jones to be their coach. The seven, plus Jones, then went before Ohio University President Alston Ellis and asked if they could use the Ewing Hall basement as a venue for their games and charge admission.
Ninety-nine years and 13 conference championships later, the Ohio basketball program will celebrate its centennial season with 12 scholarship players on the roster, a whole rack of basketballs, adidas uniforms trimmed in the trademark Green & White and a travel budget that allows for trips across the United States.
