A diary of Shaker High School's 2005-2006 basketball season, a retelling of Shaker's fabled 1979-1980 season, and general commentary on high school hoops, updated daily...


"I like sitting in the back row. I found that sitting against the wall is just easier on your back." -Dean Smith, on the comfort of the H-gym bleachers

The answer is (D) 2200. Rumors have spread over the years about how many people had to be turned away at the finals of the Shaker Invitational Tourney (now Girmindl Tournament) in 1979-80, but my most reliable source thinks that estimates over 500 are absurd. Still, can you imagine 2700 people tryinig to get into a Shaker game - wow!
