At the Basketball Museum of Illinois, we celebrate the Juneteenth significance and urge all of our coaches to educate their players on the history of this date along with the history that basketball has played in such important social changes as desegregation, gender equity, and others.
Today's item comes from IBCA Hall of Famer, Phil Venezia:
We all know the well documented history of (Chicago) Simeon boys basketball. Do You Know which two prominent high school programs were undefeated as they entered the championship game only to lose to the Wolverines?
That would be the 1984 Evanston High School team and the 2012 (Maywood) Proviso East High School team.
