UNC-Chapel Hill celebrates 100 years of basketball this year. I found this photo in the 1911 Yackety Yack, the student yearbook, showing the first varsity “Basket Ball Squad.”
There wasn’t anything else about them in the yearbook – no comments, no scores, not even a list of their names. UNC was still very much a football school at the time.
The team has worn throwback uniforms a couple of times this season. I hope, before the year is over, they bring back the sashes.
