ByJim Healey

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Basketball began in the St. Louis area around the turn of the century and was played as an exhibition sport at the 1904 Olympics and a few area schools fielded teams. By the late 1920's most area high schools competed. This book contains the factual information surrounding the game in the Bi-State Region. It covers the teams that dominated area basketball - both in Missouri and Illinois - boys and girls. On the college Level, area programs from Washington University to St. Louis University and UMSL, plus the record-setting career of Harry Statham of McKendree. But no book on area basketball would be complete without mention of the pro teams that called St. Louis home. From the Bombers and Hawks and Spirits to today's semi-pro teams, are all featured. This is the definitive book on area high school, college and professional basketball. A must-have for everyone looking to have a desktop summary of area hoops.
