Summary
A lavishly illustrated tribute to the coaches, players, and fans of a legendary era in Hoosier sport. The years 19451959 marked the time when basketball truly became the sport of Indiana. High school basketball bound together communities across the state and interest in the sport rose to a new level. The period saw the Milan/Muncie Central game, given new fame through the movie Hoosiers. It also saw the first televised game, the start of the career of Oscar Robertson (who played for Crispus Attucks), and friendly town rivalries to build the state's biggest gymnasium. It was a time before the massive consolidations of the 1960s and '70s, with more than 700 teams involved in basketball tournaments. (There are some 300 now.) Greg Guffey captures the flavor of the period and showcases many of the best teams, players, and coaches
