In November 1932, Coach C.W. Zwick, pictured here in the second row with his Grandview varsity basketball team, had only two lettermen returning to the squad.

Prospects for a winning season were not high.

With a slow start, the team pulled together and found themselves tied with Westerville for second place, and only failed to capture the Central Buckeye League championship by losing to Delaware in the season's final game.

Captain Paul Glass and Don Such, along with Captain-elect Bob Wells, led the team to an 11-5 record. The Cats also scored 344 points, compared to 329 for their opponents.

The defensive record established them as the best guarding five in central Ohio.

The spirit of fair play and teamwork was prevalent throughout the season, earning them splendid backing from their followers from all over the city of Columbus.
