Welcome to Eminence, home of the Eel Tank and the birthplace of UCLA's 10 National Basketball Championships. What? That's right, little Eminence, home of the Eels (located nowhere near the Eel River, but that's another story) with a school population of 125 and a history of some roundball success (both the boys & girls teams have won 4 Sectional titles and one Regional) was the birthplace of Glenn Curtis. Curtis, a successful college coach at Indiana State from 1938-46, is more well known as the head coach of Martinsville High School (19 years) where he won 3 State Championships and coached John Wooden (who would go on to succeed him at ISU and eventually to UCLA). But, back to the Eels - or on this rainy night, the Lady Eels. A recent lack of success has not affected the desire & pride we witnessed at the well maintained little gym, where after every home game the current crop of 7th graders sweep the stands to earn money for their high school prom. Eminence remains the birthplace of greatness and a great place to watch Indiana's game. CGS.
