    Read post #10 on this thread by Paul and that is probably your answer. Don’t think I’m buying his part about not being there tho lol

    OK, who is Harry Gilligan? Post #10 by Paul does not clear that up. Apparently he coached 1 game in 1919. According to the google machine X lost that game but no mention of who they played or any other details. Is this not accurate....or just not considered the official beginning?

    A ten second look at Wikipedia (it's on the internet so it has to be true, right) shows that Gilligan coached during the "1919-20" season. It also says the one game X played that "season" was on February 20, 1920. Looks like one game doth not make a season.

    It's not that difficult guys, this is Team 98. When we get to Team 100, then we see the big hoopla.

    Harry J. Gilligan was from the class of 1912 and served in WWI. He was an active alum sending several letters to Xavier from Europe. He returned from the War and was married in 1919. He served on the Athletics Board and was a donor to the Athletics Department. The first game in the record books was held on Feb 20 1920 was an 18-24 St. Xavier Saints defeat at the hands of St. Mary's (now Dayton). This was despite getting 10 from Noppy (Noppenberger).

    Not showing up in the record books are two college victories in early 1919 by Xavier (Loyolas?) who defeated the Fort Thomas Solders 35-23 and Hamilton YMCA 30-18. This was all at the time when the high school and college were separating and the new campus in Avondale was coming to be.

    Old Xavier historical material, very cool, can be found (here). With a subscription, you can get old newspapers (here).

    I don't get this. A basketball season spans Nov till March.
    So this year the NCAA championship trophy will be for 2020. (not 2019)
    Xavier's first game was in the 1919-1920 season...or the 1920 season.
    That's 100 years ago. No games played in 2 years of WWII.

    So...this is Team 98.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.
