On This Day in History | 1931

January 20, 2022
The 1930-31 basketball squad

On this day 91 years ago, the basketball team topped Northport, 36-20, to improve to 8-0 on the season. The Brook led 23-4 at the half before cruising to victory behind 10 points from Bob Glover.

The 1930-31 squad turned in one of the finest seasons in 100 years of Stony Brook basketball as they went 17-1 with victories over Central Islip, Sayville, Lindenhurst, East Hampton, and Islip.

The basketball team of the 1930-31 season was one of the best or perhaps the best that Stony Brook has ever seen. Most of the fellows have played together for at least two years and so the team developed a hard, fast play. Probably the most apparent characteristic of the team was the defensive ability displayed by it. It was the Waterloo of the opposing teams and proved to be the mainstay of the Blue and White’s successful season.
