Paul Endacott (July 3, 1902 – January 8, 1997) was a well-known collegiate basketball player in the 1920s. The Lawrence, Kansas native learned to play basketball at the Lawrence YMCA from James Naismith. He attended the University of Kansas from 1919 to 1923. Playing under Hall of Fame coach Phog Allen, Endacott led Kansas to consecutive Helms Foundation national championships in 1922 and 1923. In 1923 he was named Helms Foundation Player of the Year. Coach Allen called him "the greatest guard I ever coached."
Following his collegiate career, he spent five seasons with the Phillips Petroleum Company's AAU Team, the Phillips 66ers, from 1924 to 1928. He continued to work at Phillips after retiring from basketball and eventually became the company's president.
Paul Endacott was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a player in 1972.
