Gilmore Kinney (June 9, 1886 – December 15, 1916)[1] was an American college basketball standout at Yale University in the 1900s. He was a two-time Helms Athletic Foundation All-American (1905, 1907)[2] and was named their national player of the year as a senior in 1906–07.[3] That year, he led the Yale Bulldogs to their first-ever Eastern Intercollegiate Basketball League season championship title, and was the league's leading scorer at 10.1 points per game. Kinney also played for Yale's baseball team.[4][5]

Gilmore Kinney was also the older brother of Orson Kinney, another Yale basketball star who was an All-American in 1916–17.[6]
