Arthur "Schabie" Schabinger won nearly 80 percent of his games, but his impact on the game went well beyond the court. Schabinger's 20 collegiate seasons included stops at Ottawa (KS) University, Emporia Teachers College, and Creighton. A leading advocate in the development of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, Schabinger fought for the 10-second rule to keep opponents from "freezing" the ball. He helped conduct tryouts for the first Olympic team in 1936, and even officiated football, basketball, and baseball games across the Midwest. He served as President of the NABC in 1932 and also served on the NABC Rules Committee and the Amateur Athletic Union Basketball Committee.
