Rio Grande 1953 & 1954

With the 1952-53 season underway it didn’t take long for the Rio Grande College basketball team to showcase its talent.

The college did more than raise a few eyebrows with Rio Grande alum, Newt Oliver, as coach and Clarence ‘Bevo’ Francis tearing up the court. The team ended its 1952-53 season with a perfect 39-0 record. That win still ranks as the most victories in a season by a college team.
