The Story of Bill Trophy

From the Quarry, to the Fieldhouse, to the battlefield: a lost Hoosier name comes home to Assembly Hall.

In 1940, the Indiana University [men’s] basketball team won their first national championship, but not every member of the team got to play in the championship tournament. For decades, the names of the regular-season players were lost. Not Pictured, a short documentary, tells the story of one of those forgotten players, and how the perseverance of his family saw him reinstated to that historic 1940 roster.
