General Brock Basketball Club 1938 - 1939

Niagara Falls General Brocks defeated Welland "Maple Leafs" for the Niagara District Championship in a two-game total points series. Similar wins followed versus Stratford and Windsor, the latter being a particularly hard fought series, before meeting Toronto "Earl Greys" in the finals. After each team had won their home game, Niagara Falls defeated Toronto in the third game played in Hamilton. Unleashing a second half attack that would not be denied, the Niagara Falls Brocks crowned themselves worthy Ontario Intermediate "A" basketball champions when they defeated a desperate Earl Grey team of Toronto by the score of 36-31 in the deciding game of the Ontario finals. Veterans George "Pooch" Hillesheim and Os Harris were standouts throughout the playoffs.
