    Hello from Warsaw, Indiana

    Howdy fans. My name is Rich, but my friends call me Rico. Born and bred in the Warsaw, Indiana area and reside there now. Grew up in the 70's tuning into WLW and listening to the Reds. I have been "lurking" around here for quite awhile reading all the comments and have enjoyed it tremendously. Decided to make the big splash and sign up!

    Welcome. A guy who lived next door to me in the dorm in my first two years of college... was one of the stars for the state champion Warsaw basketball team. This was probably 1983 or 1984 when they won the state title. I know that the HS basketball title is huge in Indiana. I cannot remember his last name, but I am pretty sure his name was Marty. He was on a full ride to Ohio University for hoops. I can remember him telling us about beating the #1 team in the state that year, which was led by Delray Brooks, in a close game. I believe Brooks went to IU and then transferred away from Coach Knight.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Small world sometimes. That would have been Marty Lehman. They won the title in 1984 and Marty was the starting center. Another player on that state championship team is known by all. That would be "Rade" from the movie "Hoosiers".
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Warsaw, Indiana- home of Illinois State freshman point guard Nic Moore, who was runner-up for Indiana H.S. Mr. Basketball last season. ISU is my alma mater and I really enjoyed watching Nic play this season and look forward to him eventually leading Illinois State to the NCAA Tournament. Did you get to watch any of his H.S. games?

    Yes, I did. Tremendous player. Illinois State got a good one. A lot of fans here were really miffed that none of the "big boys" offered him a scholarship. Oh well, their loss is the Redbird's gain. I, too, look forward to seeing him leading ISU to the NCAA Tournament.
