Baker Rink basketball?

Did you know that from 1945 until 1947 Princeton played its basketball games at Baker Rink?

University Gym was the Tigers' home court from 1903 until a fire consumed the building four decades later in 1944. A temporary location was required while Dillon Gym was being constructed.

This first season the Tigers went 4-5 in Baker and the next year they were 4-8.

Princeton's second campaign of playing basketball in an revamped ice rink was Cappy Cappon's first year as head coach of the orange and black. His captain was a man named Butch van Breda Kolff.

The picture above comes from a 45-39 loss to Army in 1947.
