Best high school hoops team I ever saw

Belmont High of Dayton, Ohio, in 1964.

I was just a little kid at the time. But my significantly older brother and sister went to a high school (Fairborn) that was one of Belmont's early victims that season. I attended many of the games, including that one. Even went to some away games, occasionally traveling with my sister and the other cheerleaders.

Even with the score, 101-69, I'm quite certain I didn't realize just how good Belmont was. Probably had no idea. I might have simply assumed that Fairborn was pathetic.

But this stroll down memory lane by a Dayton sportswriter tells some of the story. Scroll down a little to get to the Belmont stuff.


What's the best prep team you every saw (any sport)?
