Syracuse will be represented by the strongest basketball team in the history of the great winter sport during the 1919-1920 season. Wilbur F. Crisp, former captain of the Syracuse University quintet and one of the greatest guards that ever wore the Orange, is fostering the movement to place the city on the basketball map and is arranging a schedule of games what will bring the foremost teams in the country to Syracuse. Crisp announced last night that he had secured the Armory for all home games and that contests would be played weekly, probably on Wednesday nights. He is planning to bring the famous Fort Plains quintet to Syracuse the latter part of the month for the opening contest of the season. Crisp is negotiating for games in Syracuse with such teams as the Metropolitan Five, the Silent Five of New York, the Rail Lights of Toledo, the Orioles (formerly the Germans) of Buffalo and other strong Eastern and Western teams. While he is not yet ready to announce the personnel of the team which he will direct he stated that it would be composed of players known to followers of the game in this city and that he would make an effort to give the fans the strongest possible combination of start. The quintet will be called the All-Syracuse team, and will play independent basketball.
