shawe memorial

"The place is like a cracker box."  So went our introduction to the gym at Shawe Memorial in Madison.  Built in 1952, Shawe is famous for being a troublesome environment for visiting teams.  "The visitors all sit in one corner, next to the Shawe student section and during the game, the students stand up.  You can't see a thing."  Class basketball has been good to the Hilltoppers - they have won five 1A Sectional titles in the last 10 years.  And apologies to visiting teams - we hope that "cracker boxes" like Shawe remain a part of the Hoosier basketball landscape for years to come.
