  • HBCA needs to get its act...

    The Hoosier Basketball Coaches Association was formed in 1985 with some noble goals. But it hasn't achieved them very well lately because of a lack of organization.

    It was formed to get more attention focused on players from that part of the state.

  • PC shuts out Cougars

    Gibson pitched the final four innings. He gave up two hits and one walk and struck out four.

    Gibson's brother, Derek, played defensive end for the South team last year and won the team's mental attitude award.
