The Ohio Bobcats men’s basketball team is an intercollegiate varsity sports program of Ohio University. The team represents the university as a member of the Mid-American Conference of the National Collegiate Athletics Association, playing at the Division 1 level. The Bobcats have played their home games in the Convocation Center since 1929. The first Ohio basketball game occurred in 1907 when the Bobcats defeated the Parkersburg YMCA 46-9. Since that day, Ohio has posted a .565 winning percentage over their 100 year history and a .564 winning percentage in their 61 years in the Mid-American Conference. The Bobcats have won 4 Mid-American Conference tournament titles in 1983, 1985, 1994 and 2005 as well as 9 MAC regular season titles in 1960, 1961, 1964, 1965, 1970, 1972, 1974,1985, and 1994. In addition, Ohio has played in the NCAA Tournament 11 times (second most in the MAC), appearing in 1960, 1961, 1964, 1965, 1970, 1972, 1974, 1983, 1985, 1994, and 2005. The Bobcats have been selected for the National Invitation Tournament 4 times in 1941, 1969, 1986, and 1995, finishing as runner up in 1941. In addition, the Bobcats won the prestigious Pre-Season National Invitation Tournament in 1994. As a result of the storied tradition of Ohio Bobcats basketball, the program was recently ranked 86th in Street & Smith's 100 Greatest Basketball Programs of All Time, published in 2005.

History

1907-1922: Beginnings

The first intercollegiate men’s basketball game involving an Ohio University team was played in Athens in 1907 against the Parkersburg YMCA. Under the direction of coach James Jones, the Bobcats won the game by a score of 46-9 and continued their victories with a 5 game winning streak to start the season. Though the ‘Cats would go on to lose 4 games that season and earn a 7-4 record, by all accounts the season was a resounding success and a precursor of greatness to come.

This article is about the association. ...


Coach Jones would only be at Ohio for two more seasons, leading the team to records of 1-1 in the 1908-1909 campaign and 2-5 during the 1909-1910 season. Over the next three seasons, the basketball program was in a state of flux, with a new coach taking over the reigns every year. Ohio joined the Ohio Athletic Conference in 1911, and started out poorly under coach Arthur Hinaman with a 2-9 record.


A bit of stability arrived to Athens with the hiring of coach Mark Banks in 1913. Banks would lead the program to a 3-10 season in his first year, but the ‘Cats surged to 11-4 in Bank’s second year at the helm. That 1914-1915 squad beat the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Miami Redskins twice, while also impressively defeating Wooster by a score of 51-20. Banks teams would fall off over the next several seasons, with the low point being a 2-14 mark in the 1916-1917 campaign. Banks would coach only one more year, with the Bobcats posting a 4-8 record in the 1918-1919 season. The Cincinnati Bearcats are the NCAA athletic teams representing the University of Cincinnati. ...

Bank’s successor was Frank Gullum, who in his two years at the helm was 5-4 and 5-6, respectively. Gullum was succeeded by Russell Finsterwald, who led the team to an outstanding 15-2 season in his first year at the helm. That 1920-1921 team defeated the Miami Redskins and Cincinnati Bearcats each twice, and also earned Ohio’s first ever Ohio Athletic Association title. Finsterwald’s 1921-1922 squad was equally impressive, posting a 19-4 mark with two wins against the Bowling Green Falcons. Though Finsterwald would only last these two seasons, his work cannot be underestimated in steering the ‘Cats towards a legacy of success.

1922-1949: The Grover-Trautwein Era

A game at Grover Center (1960-1968), named after Butch Grover.

Butch Grover took the reigns of the Ohio program in 1922, and led the team to a newfound level of success. His inaugural 1922-1923 season was marked by an 11-8 record, and wins over teams such as the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Marietta Pioneers. In 1923, the Bobcats marked their move into the brand new Men’s Gymnasium with a 16-5 record and a near miss of an Ohio Athletic Conference title. Several winning seasons later, the Bobcats moved into the challenging Buckeye Athletic Association in 1926 and started off with a sub-par 8-13 mark in the 1926-1927 season. The ‘Cats would soon adjust to the stiff competition, and in the 1931-1932 campaign, Ohio won its first ever Buckeye Athletic Association title with a 12-4 mark. Just two seasons later in 1933-1934, the Bobcats won yet another Buckeye Athletic Association championship with a 16-4 record and two wins over the archrival Miami Redskins. The 1936-1937 season marked Grover’s third and final Buckeye Athletic Association championship, and was perhaps his most impressive. The Bobcats were 18-3 that year, and earned wins over respected programs such as Xavier and Dayton. Dutch Trautwein took over the reigns of the Bobcat basketball program in 1938, and helped lead the team to a new level of success. He led the team to 12-8 and 19-6 records in his first two seasons, and perhaps best left his mark in the 1940-1941 campaign. That team earned a record of 18-4, and was selected for the National Invitation Tournament after a season which included wins over Xavier, Akron, Toledo, Cincinnati, and archrival Miami. With the play of Ohio legend Frank Baumholtz, the Bobcats finished as runners-up in the prestigious tournament to perennial power Long Island. Baumholtz, known as the “Midvale Marvel,” earned tournament MVP honors and All-American status for his NIT performance. Following his Ohio career, he became one of a rare fraternity to play two professional sports — basketball with the Cleveland Rebels in 1946-47 and baseball with the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies over a 10-year career.

After several more winning seasons under Trautwein, the Bobcats undertook a new challenge in 1946 when they joined the upstart Mid-American Conference. The ‘Cats were 13-10 in their first year in the MAC, and followed that up with a 10-10 mark in the 1947-1948 season. The 1948-1949 season was Trautwein’s last, with the team compiling a 6-16 record while faced with a challenging schedule.

1949-1974: The Seasons of Snyder

A poster celbrating the opening of the Convocation Center.

Ohio alumnus Jim Snyder took over for Trautwein in 1949. Ohio’s winningest coach, dubbed “Gentleman Jim”, guided the Bobcats for a quarter century. With star players like Jim Betts, Bunk Adams, Jerry Jackson, Don Hilt, Gerald McKee and Sports Illustrated cover boy Walter Luckett, Snyder won a total of seven MAC titles. His teams made seven NCAA appearances and finished with a winning record 21 times in 25 years. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Snyder’s first season was rather lackluster, with the ‘Cats posting a 6-14 record. He followed that up with a slight improvement in the 1950-1951 season and a 13-11 mark. The 1954-1955 season was a breakout year for Ohio, and the team earned a 16-5 record and key wins over Morehead State and Miami University. In 1960, Ohio won its first championship under Snyder, with the team taking the MAC by way of a 10-2 league record (17-8 overall). That squad defeated the likes of the Toledo Rockets, Bowling Green Falcons, and Miami Redskins en route to a 74-66 win over Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The 1959-1960 championship team was quickly followed up by another title in the very next year. The 1960-1961 team celebrated its move into the brand new Grover Center with a stunning 10-2 league record (17-7 overall), including a first place finish at the Canton Intercollegiate Tournament. A few short years later, the 1963-1964 team made its mark as perhaps the best in Ohio history. That team won the MAC title with a 10-2 league mark, and followed it up with NCAA tournament wins over the Louisville Cardinals and the No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats.

Though the 1963-1964 team produced a record that was hard to top, the 1964-1965 edition did its best to compete with the previous year’s squad. They posted an amazing 11-1 MAC record and a 19-7 overall mark, though ultimately falling to Dayton in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Snyder’s teams would go through a slight drought until the 1968-1969 season, when they open up the Convocation Center with a win over the Indiana Hoosiers and subsequent postseason NIT appearance and a 17-9 record. The very next season, Ohio scored wins over No. 16 Ohio State and No. 13 Purdue while marching their way to another MAC championship.

The Bobcats christened the 1970’s with yet another MAC title under Snyder in the 1971-1972 season. Though the ‘Cats were just 15-11 that year, they were 7-3 in the MAC with wins over the No. 12 Indiana Hoosiers and the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes. Snyder’s Bobcats won a final MAC title in the 1973-1974 season, with a 16-11 record and wins over the Penn State Nittany Lions and the Ohio State Buckeyes.

1974-2001: Success, Transition, and Disappointment

Not unlike most coaching legends, Jim Snyder proved difficult to replace. He was immediately succeeded by Dale Bandy, who struggled to a 69-89 record over his six year tenure at Ohio. Bandy was replaced by Danny Nee in 1980, with the Bobcats beginning a road back to prominence. His teams – led by the likes of John Deveraux, Robert Tatum, Paul Baron, John Rhodes, Eddie Hicks and Vic Alexander –tallied four consecutive 20-win seasons, a MAC Tournament title in 1983, an NIT matchup in the Convo versus the Ohio State Buckeyes and two trips to the NCAA tournament.

Nee didn’t leave Ohio’s cupboard bare when he left in 1986 to coach the Nebraska Cornhuskers, with Billy Hahn taking over the reigns. His teams were led by future NBA players Paul “Snoopy” Graham and Dave Jamerson, two of Ohio’s three 2,000-point scorers, that kept Convo crowds cheering with epic offensive performances. Jamerson’s 31.2 points per- game average in 1989-90 included a Convo-record 60-point blistering of the University of Charleston. This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ... The University of Charleston is a private college in Charleston, West Virginia of approximately 1,000 students. ...


Despite offensive stars, Hahn’s teams struggled on the court. Hahn was replaced in 1989 by Larry Hunter, an Ohio alum who would lead the Bobcats throughout the 1990’s. Hunter’s teams exploded onto the national scene with the arrival of the “Shaq of the MAC”. Like a whirlwind, forward Gary Trent took the conference by storm. On his way to joining Graham and Jamerson atop the 2,000-point plateau, Trent was the MAC’s only three-time Player of the Year. Trent teamed with three-point marksman Geno Ford to guide Larry Hunter’s Bobcats to a MAC Championship in the 1993-1994 season. Ohio captured the conference tournament that season with a lopsided 89-66 victory over archrival Miami in the finals on ESPN. Larry Hunter Larry Hunter served as head coach of the Ohio Bobcats mens baketball team from 1989-2001, compiling a winning percentage of . ...


Hunter, who played for Snyder, saw Ohio dismantle Ohio State in the Preseason NIT to open the following season. Impressive wins over 14th-ranked Virginia, George Washington and New Mexico State earned the Bobcats a Preseason NIT title and an accompanying national ranking. That team would go on to post a 24-10 (13-5 MAC) record, en route to an appearance in the post-season NIT and a win over George Washington University in the first round.   The George Washington University (GWU), or informally, G.W., is a private, coeducational, non-sectarian university located in Washington, D.C.. Founded in 1821 as the Columbian College, the university has since developed into a leading educational and research institution. ...


The Bobcats would struggle in the next few years under Hunter, with the low point being a 5-21 season in the 1997-1998 campaign. Though Hunter’s teams would rebound to post 18, 20, and 19 wins over the next three seasons, he was relieved of his duties in 2001 due to a lack of success in the postseason. His successor would be current Bobcat coach Tim O'Shea. Tim OShea Tim OShea is the current head coach of the Ohio Bobcats mens basketball team. ...


2001-Present: The Tim O’Shea Era Begins

The OZone student section at Ohio University.

A new era in Ohio basketball began in 2001 when Boston College assistant Tim O'Shea became the Bobcats’ 15th head coach. The shot blocking, slam dunking and three-point shooting displays of Patrick Flomo, Brandon Hunter and Steve Esterkamp delighted fans in The Convo’s newly christened student section, the O Zone. The NBA came calling for Hunter once his playing days were complete as he was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the second round of the 2003 draft. Esterkamp continues to play professionally overseas as well.

The 2004-2005 edition brought back memories of past success as the Bobcats made a magical run in March to reach the “Big Dance.” Ohio went 13-1 in The Convo and won 13 of their final 17 games. O’Shea’s charges dropped Marshall, Kent State, and Miami in the preliminary rounds of the MAC Tournament before scoring an epic 80-79 overtime victory over Buffalo in the championship to earn an NCAA Tournament berth. Despite a furious second-half comeback against the Southeastern Conference champion Florida Gators, the Bobcats’ season ended in the first round.

The 2005-2006 ‘Cats proved successful as well, posting a 19-11 record with wins over teams such as Rhode Island and Samford, and a close loss to Kentucky.

Bobcat basketball traditions
