Henry Payne Iba (1904-1993) was arguably the country’s best college basketball coach, and the OSU Archives holds documentation of his impact through a series of instructional films. The Play Championship Basketball features fundamentals of basketball as it was played in the 1940s — a demonstration of styles and plays by the team from Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College (OAMC), which later became OSU in Stillwater, OK. As demonstrated in a series of six instructional 35 mm films, the championship 1945 and 1946 OAMC teams work on different aspects of the fundamentals of basketball, practicing approaches to individual offense, individual defense, team styles of play, disciplined defensive styles, drills, and Iba's famous ball security and motion offensive plays and variations. The films represent a significant time in the history of the United States, as they make the connection to the teams of renowned, long-time OAMC/OSU coach, Henry Payne Iba.
