virgil martin's barn

Rumor has it that not only was basketball played in this barn, but there's a piano in the hayloft for dances.  CGS.

the weight

One could imagine that the history of Crispus Attucks & the legacy of Ray Crowe, Oscar Robertson and the Flying Tigers would weigh heavily on the shoulders of those who followed.  But, to coach Phil Washington and his young players that weight is just another barrier to break through on their way back to the top.  CGS.

top 101

As the hot days of July set in, basketball camps & shootouts have come to an end but thanks to the Indiana Coaches Association (IBCA) one more statewide showcase for underclass players takes place - the Top 100.  This year, young players from all corners of the state travelled to Ben Davis for the two day event, where they worked on the basics - dribbling, passing, defending & shooting and then played full on short games. Eight miles to the east another top young player, Chyna McMichel of Attucks, held her own workout under the watchful guidance of Indiana's greatest teams. CGS.
