In 1977, the North Dakota Boys State B Basketball tournament found two drastically different teams in the championship final.

The 'Cinderella' Epping Eagles, with a school enrollment of only 23 students became the darlings of the tournament as the made their way through tournament.

Their opponent the Hillsboro Burros, was a North Dakota basketball powerhouse which had won the state tournament multiple times in the past.

A magical thing happened that weekend in Bismark ND, all across the state, small communities came out to support the tiny town of Epping.

Those who attended the fever-pitched championship game say the excitement was so intense that it was simple impossible not get 'the chills' or 'goosebumps'.

The game was featured in a North Dakota public television documentary in 2001, but now you can get an even closer look at the Epping Eagles.
