High School Basketball Scoring

February 17, 2016

Recently the Batesville/East Central basketball game wound up with just 53 points being scored.  It is an example of many of the scores in basketball this year.  I have seen more 30-point games than 80-point games.  Why is this?

At the present time, when a soccer match ends in a tie, the tie is broken by penalty kicks.  This is not really a fair measure of who the best team is.  Penalty kicks, a lot of times, are more luck than skill.  In order to score in soccer, teams try to create space...

Do You Remember?

February 10, 2016

In the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame publication, an article by Gerald Freyer caught my eye.  Sunman High School won 2 sectionals in the history of the school.  The first one came in the late 1930’s and the second one came in the 1960’s just before the school merged with North Dearborn.

What Is The Limit?

February 9, 2016

When you watch basketball these days, you wonder what the limit is going to be on human ability.  Seven footers can now bring the ball down the floor, make a clever pass to a teammate, and rebound a missed shot with a thunderous dunk all in one trip down the floor.  In another scenario,...

Johnny Manziel
