Basketball Historian Biography

A rugged rebounder at the center slot, George Glamack was a standout basketball player at North Carolina University during the early 1940s. A rookie pro player with the Akron Goodyear Wingfoots of the National Basketball League in 1941-42, he proudly left pro basketball when the United States entered World War II, returning after 3 years to the Rochester Royals. There the 6-ft, 6-inch, 225-pounder George Glamack played a major in helping the team win a 3-game sweep of the Sheboyan Redskins of Wisconsin in the 1945-46 NBL Title Series by out-rebounding taller opposing players and by leading the team in scoring with 12.6 points per game. That season Rochester posted a 24-10 regular season record and George Glamack compiled a 12.3 ppg average, scoring 417 points in 34 games.

In 1946-47 Glamack paced Rochester to a 31-13 record and a Eastern Division Title. In the NBL playoffs the Royals first defeated the Syracuse Nationals 3-games to 1 in the Eastern Division opening round. Then in the semi-finals, knocked off Fort Wayne 2-games to 1.  In the Championship games against the Chicago American Gears, George Glamack had a fine defensive game and limited basketball star George Mikan to 14 points as Rochester won 71-66. However, the 6-ft, 10-inch George Mikan came back strongly with 27 and 23 points in Chicago wins in the next two games to go up 2-games to 1. In Game 4 Glamack again held Mikan to 14 points, but Mikan's teammate Bob Calihan netted 22 points and Chicago won 79-68 to give them the Championship. 

George Glamack signed with the Indianapolis Kautskys in 1947-48 and scored a career-high 592 points in 57 games. After playing with the Hammond Calumets of Indiana near the Chicago border, he scored 501 points in 43 games. When the NBL and the American Basketball League merged to form the National Basketball League Glamack signed with Indianapolis of the newly formed NBA.

George Glamack playoffs stats: 306 points in 26 games, averaging 11.8 ppg. Sorry, no records of rebounds were kept during this era.
