1925-26 Boston Whirlwinds (ABL)

1925-26 BOSTON WHIRLWINDS
AMERICAN BASKETBALL LEAGUE (I)
First Half:
6-10 .375, tied for 6th place
Second Half:
Expelled (or dropped out) of league after first half

  • Head Coach: Fiddle Morley (June 5, 1901 - August 24, 1968) Also played. See Below

Box score on December 21, 1925, vs Washington, shows players name Jenkins and Connolly played. They also listed "Dodd" and "Burnett" but I am assuming that is actually "Dowd" and "Bernot." I think Jenkins is Harvard athlete Percy Jenkins. I don't know who Connolly was.
