Regular seasonEdit

The 1923–24 Chicago Maroons men's basketball season was the third of thirty-four seasons for head coach Nelson Norgren. This group was last Big Ten champion for the Maroons as they would leave the conference in 1946. The team would play 12 conference games and finish with 8 wins and 4 losses (a 66.6% winning percentage). The Maroons were led by captain Campbell Dickson, who would go on to coach football at Minnesota, Chicago, Beloit, Wisconsin, Princeton, Michigan and Hamilton. Additionally, the team rounded out the starting five with Harrison Barnes and Joseph Duggan at guard, Harold Alea and Dickson at forward, and William Weiss at center.

At seasons end, Campbell Dickson, was awarded the Big Ten Medal of Honor, while also being named 1st-team all-conference forward.[1][2]
