Arkansas Basketball, 1926

In the decade following the foundation of the Southwest Conference in 1915, Texas and Texas A&M combined to win nine league titles in basketball. But in only their third season of competition, the Razorbacks captured the 1926 SWC championship in dominating fashion. Guided by Schmidt, standing in the middle of the back row, Arkansas posted a 23-2 record — going 11-1 in the SWC — and went 4-0 against Texas and Texas A&M. Schmidt was also grooming his protege: standing to his right is Glen Rose, who would return in 1934 lift his alma mater to even greater heights.
