Birth and Death Dates:
Winograd played three seasons of varsity basketball at CCNY in the mid-1930s under Hall of Fame coach Nat Holman, when the Beavers were one of the top basketball programs in the country. As a sophomore in 1933, he joined a great team led by center Moe Goldman, guard Moe Spahn, and forward Lou Wishnewitz (all three received All-Met honors that year) as the Beavers finished the season 13-1 and claimed their second straight Eastern and New York City championships (they went 16-1 in 1932). That year, Winograd played in all 14 games and scored 44 points for City College, fifth most on the team.
In 1934, Winograd had a solid season as he increased his scoring with 97 points (second on the team to Goldman, an All-America that year), while playing in all 15 Beaver games. City College won its first 14 games of the year before falling to archrival New York University in the season finale, 24-18. NYUís victory over Winograd and CCNY ended Cityís three-year reign as the best team in the East.
In 1935, Winogradís final season at City College, he was named captain. Although he led the team in scoring with 98 points, CCNY struggled that season with only two seniors on the squad (Winograd and guard Meyer Pincus). They finished the season with a record of 10-6, the first time under Nat Holmanís direction that a City team lost more than five games (Holman began coaching in 1920).
Winograd played forward at CCNY, 1933-35.
