NORTH MANCHESTER -- A year ago, wrestling in college wasn't even a thought in Braxtin Wilson's mind. Now it is a reality as he will attend Manchester University to study criminal justice, and coaching, and continue his wrestling career.

The Manchester High School senior played basketball growing up and was a member of the Squire team for three years. He decided to switch to wrestling for his senior season and had no idea what would be in store for him.

Big George finally receives recognition that he is due
By Bill Barrows
How much do I care about whom is the No.1 pick in the NBA Draft? Not much. 
Do I care what teams have the best shot at the lottery picks? Not really. 
Who are the best candidates for MVP in the NBA?  Not really a strong opinion on any of them.

What I do care about as far as the NBA is concerned is how the Indiana Pacers match up against the other teams, past and present.  About a month ago, I was invited to attend a Sunday evening Pacers game as they took on Miami.

Tom Creanís demise
By Bill Barrows
First of all, let me clarify my stance. I am not your typical college basketball fan. 
I appreciate all of the major college programs that take up most of the space on the sports pages in Indiana. There are rabid and loyal fans for each school, namely, Indiana, Purdue, Notre Dame and Butler. That’s great. That’s what makes the world go around here in the state that is named for basketball sickness -- “Hoosier Hysteria”.

Southwood loses in the Regional to eventual Champions
By Bill Barrows
The Southwood Knights weathered foul trouble and a Frankton team that was equally at quick as the Knights on Saturday. Down the stretch, there were a number of momentum swings that kept the crowd on the edge of their seats, if they were sitting at all. A see-saw battle ensued all afternoon, neither team leading by more than six points. In the end, clutch shots and good free throw shooting by Frankton won out as they beat the Knights 65-61.
