Glory Days: Legends of Illinois High School Basketball
Along the way, somebody invented the jump shot and the crossover dribble and added a three-point line. Times changed, the game was integrated, players grew taller and more wildly athletic. That evolution is chronicled in Glory Days, as 50 of the stateÂ’s best high school basketball players from the past five decades sit down to chat with longtime prep basketball scribe Taylor Bell. Every last one of the featured players was an all-state selection. Some led their teams to state titles; others were chosen as IllinoisÂ’ Mr. Basketball; many were named McDonaldÂ’s All-Americans. 82%
Glory Days pulls its roster from all regions of the state: from southern Illinois (Edwardsville, Centralia, Mount Vernon) to the stateÂ’s waist (Galesburg, Peoria, Decatur) to north of I-80 (Rockford, Evanston, and many Chicago schools). Each player on the roster relives his time on the high school hardwood, but also reveals what happened after he walked down the aisle in his cap and gown. Bell catches up with greats like Mannie Jackson, Dave Downey, Jay Shidler, Jack Sikma, Rashard Griffith, Cazzie Russell, Kiwane Garris, Cuonzo Martin, and Billy Ridley, and discovers what happened to these legends later in life, after their hops deserted them. Their Chuck Taylors may be a distant memory, but for each of these former stars, basketball has continued to hold a special place in their heart.

10-01 Bsktbll HS - HoopHall Classic 2010 - St Patricks vs Finlay College Prep-02361
From ESPNU - When two of the nation's top three-ranked squads square off, a fantastic game with a fantastic finish can be expected. That's exactly what the fans at Blake Arena saw when FAB 50 No. 1 St. Patrick (Elizabeth, N.J.) took on No. 3 Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.) in the marquee contest of the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass., on Monday...St. Patrick was down 42-34 at the half, but used a scintillating second-half performance from Duke-bound point guard Kyrie Irving to get back in the game. He scored on a variety of jump shots and acrobatic moves in the lane, but it was two free throws by Irving with one second left that put the Celtics in position to tie the game and force overtime...With St. Patrick trailing 71-69, Irving nailed the first, but the game-tying free throw was off target. Teammate Michael Gilchrist, who was nursing knee and ankle injuries, came up with the offensive rebound, but had his put back attempt blocked by a trio of swarming Findlay Prep defenders as the buzzer sounded. With its 71-70 victory, coach Michael Peck's club from Findlay Prep (22-1) will move up to No. 2 in the next ESPN RISE FAB 50 Rankings. The No. 3 ranked Pilots lost by one point to current No. 2 Northland (Columbus, Ohio), which is set to take over the top spot in the national rankings following Saturday's win over No. 9 Oak Hill Academy at the Hoophall Classic...Irving, the No. 6 player in the ESPNU 100 and a Mr. Basketball USA candidate, finished with a game-high 30-points for St. Patrick (10-1). Findlay Prep's counter part at the point guard position, Cory Joseph, finished with a team-high 23-points, on 8-of-16 shooting, with nine boards. Joseph, ranked No. 30 in the ESPNU 100, is another Mr. Basketball USA candidate. He battled leg cramps in the second half after scoring 16-points and helping his team build a first half cushion...It was uncertain if Gilchrist, the No. 1 prospect in the ESPNU Super 60, was going to play in this game after suffering a knee injury in a game against Union (Union, N.J.) on Jan. 5. Gilchrist gave a valiant effort and even made contributions after suffering a sprained ankle in the first quarter. He finished with 19 points...Findlay Prep forward Tristan Thompson finished with eight points before fouling out, but wing Nick Johnson picked up the scoring slack for his Texas-bound teammate with 16 points. Johnson is the nephew of former Boston Celtic guard Dennis Johnson and the son of California playground legend "Jumping" Joey Johnson...Monday's marquee at the Hoophall Classic was a matchup of two great point guards and two great teams, but unfortunately time ran out on St. Patrick, which suffered its first loss on the year.
