In the fifth year of basketball an AHS team finally had a home court (the YMCA) and a coach (J.E. Rhea, the PE director at the YMCA). Their captain was Luther Frentz, who had three years of experience on the YMCA team. He was apparently the first AHS player to score more than 20-points in a game, when he made 11 field goals against Bellville. All the players except one had played on the Football. Forward/manager Harry Matthews, who was a future AHS baseball coach (1915-19), scheduled the first game for Feb. 10th.
