"Robert W. "Bob" Doll" was an American professional basketball player who played in the early days of professional basketball for the St. Louis Bombers (NBA)/St. Louis Bombers and Boston Celtics during the early years of the National Basketball Association/NBA.
Doll starred at Chaffey High School in Ontario, California and played collegiately at the University of Colorado at Boulder/University of Colorado from 1939 to 1942, leading the Colorado Buffaloes men's basketball/Buffaloes to a period of great team success. A post player, "Ichabod" Doll was known as a voracious rebounder and defender with a soft shooting touch. In his first season of eligibility as a sophomore in 1940, Doll led the Buffaloes to bids in both the 1940 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament/NCAA Tournament and 1940 National Invitation Tournament/NIT. While the NCAA tournament appearance lasted only one game, Doll led the Buffs to the NIT title and was named the tournament Most Valuable Player after averaging 15.5 points per game. Two years later, Doll was named a 1942 NCAA Men's Basketball All-Americans/consensus second team All-American and led Colorado to its first Final Four.More Bob Doll on Wikipedia.
