Eugene Goers walked with pride, cane in his right hand and his granddaughter Sarah Goers holding his left arm.
Keith Christmas went along for the ride in April of 2002. The senior basketball player at West Side never received an invitation to the Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Top 60 workout.
I met Diane Cavinder on May 26, 2010. It was awful. Horrific. Words cannot be used to fully express the emotions of that day.
This is not a scene from Shakespeare's Hamlet.
Fred Mooney walked into Anthony & Dziadowicz Funeral Home in Munster on March 7. A lot was on the mind and heart of the assistant boys basketball coach at Marquette.
Wow. Didn't it seem like it was yesterday when the whistles blew for the first boys basketball practice in Indiana? Time flies, don't it?
CHICAGO | You look at the names of those who played in the McDonald's All-American Games, both boys and girls and you see a lot of names who either are in the NCAA men's and women's basketball tournaments or are stars in the NBA.
INDIANAPOLIS | Early deadlines and three area teams in the state finals left some key points in the notebook last Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. So it's time to empty them out here.
INDIANAPOLIS | There was an interesting conversation on a school bus on January 25 in Central Indiana. Bowman Academy boys basketball coach Marvin Rea was speaking to some of his assistant coaches on the drive down to Carmel.
ST. JOHN | Michael Phillips was a lad in East Chicago in the early 1970s. He suffered from psoriasis on his feet. So when his middle school gym class jumped in the pool, he could not take part.
What is next for Illiana Christian athletics?
ST. JOHN | The pep band was jamming, filling Lake Central's gymnasium with pulse-pounding music. These kids are good. Real good.
HUNTINGTON | Two weeks earlier, Justin King sat on the front bleacher inside the Hammond Civic Center. His Bowman Academy Eagles had just won the sectional championship, the school's first in Class 3A.
ST. JOHN | The gym was rafter packed. Couldn't move. Or breath.
Will Illiana Christian High School athletics start a new tradition and move from March Madness to Hoosier Hysteria?
On Monday history could be made in Lansing. Illiana Christian High School will take a vote to see if its history and geography will change.
NORMAL | Terrone Parham just had the game of his life.
MICHIGAN CITY | It would've been easy to start dancing. A few chest bumps and pointing to the crowd, also would've been appropriate.
HARVEY | The Homewood-Flossmoor boys basketball team had one more ounce of fight left in it Friday night in the Class 4A Thornton Sectional final.
CEDAR LAKE | Not that this is common (insert joke here) but on Thursday night I was reaching for some more mashed potatoes when some major news broke. Right in front me when I wasn't even looking.
As we look back at the 2013-14 girls basketball season, it was a little different, to say the least.
OK, so this is never going to happen. Still, why can't we dream?
HARVEY | Tyler Ulis has done just about everything to take over a game in the fourth quarter and swing it in favor of Marian Catholic.
HAMMOND | So how do you beat the champion? Short jabs? Quick stomach blows followed by a rope-a-dope hoping to win the bout on points?
NEW LENOX | A packed gym, with both sides screaming to the hilt and it coming down to the final seconds.
EAST CHICAGO | Frank Kollintzas used to stand in the southeast corner of the Baratto Center's gym. E.C. Central was a state power. The bleachers were always full.
CHICAGO HEIGHTS | The first official day of girls basketball practice saw the defending Class 4A state girls basketball champion Marian Catholic Spartans carrying a binder into practice.
HAMMOND | It's winners week in Indiana. We've been doing this for 104 years. Ain't it fun?
HEBRON | Hebron boys basketball coach John Steinhilber had an official speak with him before his Hawks took on Boone Grove on Tuesday night.
Have you seen the commercial about where Leroy falls out of his deer stand and someone asks what happened?
Predicting title winners has been a tradition for sports scribblers. So it's time for your above-the-rim Nostradamus to slip on his Air Jordans, comb the cookie crumbs out of the beard and let you know who will win our local sectionals and the state championships.
CROWN POINT | If Rory Gard ever starts a business, buy the stock of the Lake Central senior. If you do, it could end up being like one of those nameless folks in California in the '70s who purchased Apple shares.
What might have been the beginning of a run to a Class 4A state title was an empty gym with empty seats that the Homewood-Flossmoor girls basketball team would have occupied for their scheduled Class 4A T.F. North Regional.
What if Mike Hepp had coached at Andrean? Or Lake Central? Or Crown Point? Would the records or scoreboards changed much at those tradition-rich football schools?
HOBART | If you think a jam-packed, Motley Crue-loud Hobart gymnasium on a sectional Saturday night had LaPorte's Nicole Konieczny nervous, think again.
SOUTH HOLLAND | Maybe the guy who is most impressed with how the Thornwood boys basketball team has performed without its star is the star.
LOWELL | There was one singular reason to drive to Lowell on Friday night. It was to take in the West Side-Lake Central Class 4A sectional semifinal showdown.
HAMMOND | This sports scribbler had a decision to make back on Feb. 22, 1980. It was a teenage decision which meant, unless I listened to my parents, it was likely to be wrong.
It's hard to believe we are in the middle of February and the start of the proverbial second season starts Monday for Class 3A and 4A girls basketball programs.
CEDAR LAKE | Donald Nelson walked to the middle of the gym floor on Jan. 11 and sat directly in the middle of the two cheering sections.
MUNSTER | It's before lunch. The fingers started dialing the number. Gary Hayes answered. The raging pulse could be felt on Friday morning.
In an era where a lot of kids expect everything and think all is owed to them, Mount Carmel senior lineman Steve Dumezich is a breath of fresh air.
CALUMET TWP. | Imagine Barack Obama in a black-and-white striped shirt, a whistle around his neck, running up and down the basketball court. Imagine the crowd reaction when our hoops-crazed President made a call.
LOWELL | Region hoops fans have been talking about this since the middle of November. On paper, it seemed, Lowell's Red Devils had a shot to end Munster's freak-show streak in the Northwest Crossroads Conference boys basketball.
Dennis Kelly is more excited about tonight's Marist at Marian Catholic boys basketball game than he is about the big pre-game ceremony.
CARMEL | I wish I had a dollar for every time I saw it happen. If so I could retire to the warming sun of the south. Wheatfield is nice this time of year I hear.
So it's Tournament Week in “Da Region.” There is an extra thrill in the air as two small-school conferences host a basketball party.
The losses do not bother T.F. North boys basketball coach Tim Bankston as much as how his team has lost.
In March 1997 there was a loud refrain across the state, from Angola to Zionsville. You can still hear it at the truck stop in Lebanon.
