Today's DYK cmes from IBCA Hall of Fame coach, Bruce Firchau:


Do You Know in what season, the molded basketball (the model for today's balls) was introduced as a replacement for the laced basketball by the IBCA?


That would be the 1937-38 season.  Note:  Illinois was a pioneer in the use of the new molded basketballs.  Other states soon followed.  In fact, Illinois high schools began using the molded models before the NCAA and the NAIA.
