US Open Projects: history - 1954

Indiana High School Basketball - glory days single class boys tournament

Career beginning: providing sectional scores for the Peru Daily Tribune: 1954
Miami County - Bunker Hill, Chili, Converse, Deedsville, Mexico, Twelve Mile

Even the smallest schools had a place in the event and a chance to win it all. First step were the sectionals, which fed into the regionals, the semi-state, state finals (final four)

I always wondered why there was so much enthusiasm for local teams, particularly those with no chance to advance. Losing so often would be a significant discouragement but that wasn’t the way it worked. Although every round, half the participants were losers, also the same number were winners and winners at the lowest level were proud to have a notch on their belt and the losers would look forward to trying to figure out how to get on that same page.

So there was significant motivation to be hopeful for this year and next and try to figure out how to be better as a team, with all the surrounding efforts.

In that decade, high school football and basketball dominated small and big Indiana towns because there was live local radio broadcasting the events, and many fans were faithful going to home games each Friday night. Players were always interested in who had their picture in the "paper" and usually weekend shopping was done on Saturday since many stores were not open Sundays.
