I waited anxiously for the story I was sure would follow the 50th anniversary celebration of the BTHS basketball team that claimed third place in the then one-class IHSA state tournament. Imagine my disappointment when I found all the “Southern Illinois’ leading daily” could muster was a photo of the team, not even bothering to identify the members by name!
I would have loved to have read a feature recapping that magical season, and then maybe some mention of where the guys are now. You let me down, BND, and make me rue even more the demise of the once great Metro East Journal
