Book Overview

It is often said that while Dr. James Naismith invented basketball in Massachusetts, the sport was raised and ultimately came of age in the high schools of Indiana, the state where politics, religion, and sweet corn fall in line behind the game played with the round orange ball.

Great look at the great coaches, players, and teams from Hoosier HS Basketball history

For the uninformed, "Tales From Indiana High School Basketball" by Jeff Washburn, will be a great way to get to know the history of the sport of basketball in this basketball-crazy state. Stories about every famous coach, player and team from the turn of the 20th Century on can be found in this quick-reading book. The names (Larry Bird, Oscar Robertson, John Wooden, Rick Mount, Steve Alford, just to name a few), will be familiar to many fans. Washburn knows his stuff and has done some great research in putting this book together. For those familiar with the Hoosier state and its love of basketball, then "Tales..." will be a trip down memory lane. One of the positives of the book is also a negative. The stories, while varied and well-done, are very short and could use some fleshing out. It would also have been nice to see more stories about some of the lesser-known greats from Indiana basketball. Maybe those stories could be told in "Tales II". Recommended for basketball fans everywhere!
