• The Bloomsburg High School had some basketball teams in the 1910's that were student run. 

    The 1928 yearbook explains that after a hiatus of a few years from basketball, the school board

    hired Linn Wells as the school's basketball coach for interscholastic games.  So, the history of

    Bloomsburg High School basketball teams start there.

     

    The game of basketball has seen some tremendous changes over these years:

    1937: The center jump was eliminated after each basket. Previously, teams lined up after each basket for a jump ball.

    1957: Free throw lane lane widened from 6 to 12 feet. (Thank you, George Mikan.)

     

    Prior to 1945, the PIAA had no school size classifications.

    1945 to 1947: 2 Classes 

    1948 to 1983: 3 Classes (Girls play-offs added in 1973 w/ 1 class; 3 classes in 1978)

    1984 to 2016: 4 Classes

    2017 onward: 6 Classes
