Girls Prep Basketball
CROWN POINT | It was 1980. The hair was long, the shirts polyester and the mustaches danced to a Bee Gees beat.
GARY | Dana Evans, in one way, is your typical high school freshman. A little shy. Probably got lost trying to find the algebra classroom after leaving the history classroom. Traditional stuff.
If one looks at the spiraling downward attendance numbers of Indiana's basketball tournaments, it is beyond shocking. Does anyone remember when they called it Hoosier Hysteria?
Munster's Mike Hackett and Wheeler's Tom Johnson were there, but neither can talk about the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association's hybrid tournament plan that is being circulated among members right now.
In 1977 Lisa Sanchez walked into East Chicago Washington as a semi-lost ninth-grader. The 5-foot-1 youngster had never before dribbled or shot a basketball.
HARVEY | Tim Zasada looked at the rosters and knew it was a little slanted. The 1990 Hammond grad's premonition proved true Saturday afternoon at Thornton High School.
For all you knuckle-draggers crawling out of your caves, here is a sentence for you. And for all you Nike-wearing troglodytes, this applies to you, too.
VALPARAISO | It wasn't a ho-hum kind of injury. The kind where a bag of ice and a few minutes on the bench is the healer.
PORTAGE | Mike Megyese spoke directly with some passion on Jan. 25, a few minutes after his Michigan City Wolves had snapped Merrillville's 39-game regular season winning streak with a 60-57 win.
CEDAR LAKE | There have been a lot of rumors about Hanover Central guard Blayr Poston this winter. I wish I had a dime for every question or email I've gotten about her injury and missed games.
MUNSTER | It isn't just how you finish. Hardly. Winners come in many shapes and sizes. And they are not always on the “right” side of the scoreboard.
