Basketball in March. It’s crazy. Insanity. Lunacy. Delirium, even. There should be a term that applies specifically to this phenomenon. Any ideas?
With all of your basketball viewing options this time of year, IHSAA Boys Basketball State Finals is among the best. A few of these players will go on to the NCAA to have the bragging rights of millions of office workers riding on their backs as they play in that most famous of tournaments. But the majority will play competitively for the last time on this day. And you can tell by the way they leave it all on the floor that they don’t want to walk away with any regrets.
This year saw three of the four games decided by 3 points or less. Were you at any of the games this year? What was your favorite moment? For many, myself included, it was watching Oscar Robertson (12x NBA All-Star and captain of the 1955 Crispus Attucks championship team – first in the nation from an all-black school to win a state title), as he placed medals around the necks of the 2017 3A champs from his alma mater.
