DREAMS DO COME TRUE

Thirty years later…

As a kid I recall someone saying that we were going to get a gym.

Well, that never worked out.

I also heard we were going to get fiberglass backboards in the boys schoolyard at Holy Name.

Well, guess what? Someone held true to that promise!

Thanks to the Elusive G for this image of the brand new fiberglass backboards in the boys schoolyard!

Fiberglass backboards

Now I need to get a few jumpers up!

    The rectangular or square backboards now have taken away our home court advantage for we Holy Name players were the very few that still knew how to shoot a bank shot with those half moon backboards! It took a lot of skill to shoot those shots! The ball had to be placed perfectly on a particular spot on the backboard or the ball would hit the top of those backboards and the ball would go out of bounds.
