National champions, national heroes

This season marks the 90th anniversary of the 1917 Washington State College national champion basketball team. The team won 25 of 26 games and captured the first Pacific Coast Conference championship. Several decades later, the team received its greatest honor, and in the process would forever go down in history, when it was declared the 1917 basketball national champions by the Helms Athletic Foundation.

The team will be recognized during the March 1 WSU-UCLA game at Beasley Coliseum. March 1 will mark the 90th anniversary of the 1917 team’s final game of the season, a 53-10 win over Idaho.
