SOUTH BEND – It's the sport that's synonymous with Indiana – basketball.
Tuesday night, South Bend celebrated a century of high school hoops.
Local legends of the hardwood were honored at Adams High School before the boys varsity game.
Several former players and coaches where there including Nat Pittman, the first black head coach of a varsity boys' basketball team in South Bend.
But the city is celebrating more than just the game.
“The athletics brings all the kids together, not just athletic kids,” said Nan Tulchinsky, who was South Bend’s Director of Athletics from 1964-2008. “It brings band kids, it brings cheerleading kids, it brings dance kids. So, basketball brings so much more to our schools than just being a sport.”
