1948-49 Nashville Vols (SPBL)

1948-49 NASHVILLE VOLS
SOUTHERN BASKETBALL LEAGUE
15-23 .395, 4th place


The Vols expected big things coming into this season, hoping to challenge the Rebels' supremacy. However, they dropped their first five games and 8 out their first 10. They played a little better when 1949 was rung in, and by February 2 had improved to 13-15. Unfortunately, the bottom and Nashville dropped seven straight and 8 of their last ten to bury themselves in 4th place.
