We've had MaryAnn Davis on before, but we've updated the interview with a new one. Take a listen to her side of Coach Bob Knight. A story that was omitted was how she sat in the Suite with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and each time she reached into her bag, be it for mints, gum, or lip balm, the Secret Service was very inquisitive and she decided to watch the rest of the game down on the floor.
If you haven't gotten the book "One small town, one crazy coach.", you need to get it today. Author Mike Roos writes of that season. A must-have for any Indiana High School basketball fan!
This recording is the play by play of the 4th quarter of the Sectional Championship game between the Ireland Spuds and the Springs Valley Blackhawks. In the 1963 Huntingburg Indiana Sectional. It was voted by the fans as the 7th most exciting game ever played in the Huntingburg Memorial Gym from 1952 thru 2002. Springs Valley was coached by a young Jim Jones (In the IBHOF now) and Ireland was coached by the Wizard (as the papers would call him back then), Coach Pete Gill. The play by play announcer is the late Jack Brandt from WITZ radio Jasper, Indiana.

Seen in the photo on the 1979 Indiana All-star team, Battling Melvin Turpin for a rebound, and on the bus traveling with the Harlem Magicians.

Eric Harmon has spent most of his life with a whistle or striped shirt on. Officiating the 1977 IHSAA State Finals was a treat, as was officiating games as a Big 10 Referee for a career.

Even a story of Coach K complimenting the officiating crew, and letting Coach Knight know he wasn't going to teach him a history lesson.
