New coach Harry Barnhart introduced two training rules: no sweets and no tobacco. He, also, used the inter-class games to fill-out his squad. It was one of the better teams of the first quarter century of AHS basket ball (still referred to as two words). They had the most wins to date (13) and a-point-a-minute team (614 pts). The made it to the third round of the OW tourney again. Cresco “Nip” McHose set a new scoring record (231 pts) and twice scored 24 points (Galion & Wellington). The Homecoming game (Wooster) packed the gym with 800 spectators. The A’s lost twice to the NCO champions Mansfield, but they finished the season with a convincing defeat of the YMCA team in the City championship game. Nip McHose went on to Stanford and played pro basketball in the Pacific Coast Conference where he earned All-Star honors.
