1912 EBL Season
6 teams competed during the regular season
Trenton Tigers defeated Jasper Jewels for the championship
Trenton, last year’s cellar-dweller, soared all the way to the top in the Eastern Basketball League and landed in a tie with Jasper for first place. The return of offensive star Harry Hough and veteran center Alois Getzinger from the CBL were the key ingredients in the remarkable turnabout. Jasper produced its fine squad by signing ex-De Neri star Buck Reilly and former Camden ace Army Fitzgerald to complement longtime star Jack Donohue. A best-of-three game playoff was agreed upon to decide the championship. Each team won a game at home to set up a deciding third on a neutral court in Philadelphia. Harry Hough’s fifteen points and all-around inspired play controlled the final game to give Trenton a 19-15 win and the EBLtitle.
