asketball Tournament. It was played between Union Whitten and Everly high schools using “six on six rules” which was the format for girls basketball in Iowa at that time.

The drama was immense involving two undefeated teams from small towns with record- breaking players on each team. The game was a huge media event and was telecast into nine states. A good look at the event can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsJDJSHkLJ4
