A black and white team photograph of the Bethune-Cookman University men's basketball team, posing together on the lawn in front of Cookman Hall, which can be seen in the background. The players are posed in three rows, each in their team jerserys with the letters "BC" on the front, their arms folded across their chest. In the center of the photograph is a man in a three-piece suit; he is presumably the coach. Sitting on the grass in front of him is a player holding a basketball in his hand, with the year "1930" written on it. Trees can be seen in the background. Written on the front of the image is, "College men's basketball team 1930." The players' names are given in the 1930 Wildcat yearbook, but their order is unknown in the photograph. Names as follows: Julian T. Houston, John F. Kelley, Leroy Brown, William Wilson, Clarence Wallace, Samuel Johnson, Freeman Hinson, Eugene Vance, George Thompson, and Samuel Douglas. The photographer of the image is unknown.
