I know the siebolts. Long standing family friends. Lived on fox hollow. Great bunch.
The name doesn't ring a bell. Did he teach at North?
Don't forget Vincennes Rivet too. That four team sectional was a killer! no wonder Vincennes won so many sectionals, had to be the easiest in the state.
of course. We always had to battle Princeton and South Spencer
MC Elston 74.
I criticized Boonville's football field and Jet thought I was jealous. I also said Jasper sucks and why I didn't like them.
South Knox '93
Sectional champs, lost to South Spencer in regional championship
Coach Sam Alford of South Knox would disagree. Regardless of the sectional opponents, Lincoln enjoyed a lot of success at Regional, Semi State, and State in the late 60's through the 80's in single class basketball.
South Spencer was loaded that year.. Neil Reed?
Yes Vinncennes was always good in sports I'm not arguing with you
Garrett wasn't on the 93 team
The big foreign kid. Morales?
I'm pretty sure Garrett was a freshman
He was a bjtch. Ayer was a badass
Ayer was a nice player.
They had a very good team
Bunch of old farts on this board. Since you mentioned Silver Creek. Silver Creek class of 93. This Kaufman dude is going to be a joy to watch next year. I have a feeling he's leaning Louisville but Ive heard he likes IU as well.
Orleans, class of 69
For us old guys, who remembers having your school play the University of East Chicago Washington back in the day?
Curt Gilstrap was a baller
Region had the best hoops in the state back in the 70s. Gary West regional was a killer to advance from, then the brothers would almost always get whistled down in Mooooooooooo Town
They would send CITY to South Bend to the old Athletic and Convocation Center. Jimmy Webb from Adams was unstoppable and they went all the way to final game in '73
and Herman Helicoptor. New Albany won it in 73 with Bill Finley, Julius Norman, Norman Mukes, Charlie Mitchell and Dale Slaughter.
I saw Curt Gilstrap beat Kentucky Wesleyan at the Sportscenter.
You mean 1973
You were at the end of all the great "City" teams. That '72 team with Albert Fleming, John Wiley, and Donnie Thomas was crazy good. I was a junior at Rogers when MCR broke Elston's twenty something year string of sectional championships.
Ah yes, North Mont...
Yes. They were all a few years younger than me. Brian Stryker married a good buddies younger sister.
Losing to Gary West with that team was absolutely heart breaking. The next year EVERYONE thought we couldn't win the sectional... but guess what? We did... when Tony Branch was a freshman and Larry Williams was a Junior. Larry had the funkiest jump shot ever. When my brother called me while I was at school and told me Rogers beat City (#1) in the Sectional on a last second shot... I couldn't believe it.
Wasn't it true that Doug Adams came back to coach during the tourney at Rogers?
By the way, Vernon Pain was on the '66 CITY team. Any relation?
One of the great players at CITY was a guy named Ricky Whitlow... I think he went to Illinois State.
I guess it is spelled "Siebolt." He was the athletic director at either Bloomington North or Bloomington South.
I saw Larry Bird play the Purple Aces in 78-79. Wasn't that impressed until I looked at the box score next day. He light up the stats with 40 points. If you could get a quiet 40 he did. Not flashy just deadly. They played at Roberts stadium, which used to host the EVV Sectional and Southern Indiana Regionals. Always loved when Loogootee, etc. came to town. Killer games. Any of you come to EVV for regionals?
Lived near Roberts Municipal Stadium. Saw quite a bit of basketball there. Especially lucky to have seen the Aces and Jacksonville. Bosse HS played a few games there..heh.
I went to Riley Elementary School with Rick's brother Larry. Larry, Jim Fleming, Albert Fleming, Bennie Edwards and others used to play pickup games on the Riley Playground and at Watertower Playground. It was very entertaining for this 12 year old to watch.
I don't doubt that its been broken since, but I was at the Game where Rick Whitlow broke Vernon Payne's single game MC record.
Just my handle here but he's why I started listening to IU BBall on WIMS.
He did. There was a teacher strike so Earl Cunningham was out on strike. Adams took a Rogers team that started three Freshmen to the FT Wayne Semistate Final where they lost it Jay Edwards and Lyndon Jones Marion team by two points.
That 72 team was the best I ever saw. I remember Gary West getting an absolute hose job from the officials at State. City would have destroyed the Connersville team that ended up winning that year.
in the Rogers game, a Solomon Williams tip in at the buzzer. Solomon ended up playing his college ball at Colorado State.
