This survey has grown out of a desire for myself, as well as others, to complete a record of all varsity basketball team statistics since Mr. E.A. Diddle joined the Western Kentucky Normal School staff in September 1922, in which capacity he served as coach of all sports until the fall of 1929, since that time as head basketball coach.
The main purpose of this survey is to compile a statistical record of actually what Western varsity basketball teams have done in the past, present and what they probably will do in the future.
To introduce many interesting facts and figures regarding Western's past performances, and to recall, or to have on hand a near accurate record of the basketball achievements of the men who participated in these contests.
The record compiled here range only during Mr. Diddle's coaching reign, 1923-1947. These are only for varsity basketball teams which he has coached during this period of years. These records are near complete and correct as past records, newspaper clippings, and old Western scorebooks will show.
