Basketball talent in Indiana is probably no better than that found in any other state, yet the richness of tradition is unequalled anywhere else in the country. Author Dick Denny explores the Indiana basketball culture through this wonderful presentation of interviews and stories with Indiana’s greatest male high school basketball stars. These legends include Carl Erskine, Monte Towe, and George McGinnis. Each former Indiana basketballer provides warm recounts of his athletic career, his contribution to the history of Indiana basketball, and how his experiences affected him later in life. This book will help you remember your favorite stars from the past, and introduce you to the ones of the present.
