What a great idea! And what a polished way of presenting both facts and opinions! Bill May has done an excellent job of gathering and organizing information about Indiana high school basketball. Nowhere else can a fan or sportswriter find so much basketball tournament history in one place and presented so clearly. Sportswriters decades from now will be relying upon May's work. In addition to this factual material, the reader will also get opinions about the state of basketball today from a man who obviously knows and cares about the game. That's the solid main course at this basketball banquet, but it's the dessert that makes the meal complete. The dessert here is the collection of anecdotes that May presents in a down-to-earth, Hoosier style. When you read this section of the book you'll think that the writer is sitting beside you and rolling out story after story of basketball history.
