I’m sorry to hear of the passing of a great basketball player of the 50s.
Gene played on some outstanding Holland Dutchmen teams and went on to future greatness with the University of Tennessee and the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA.
The 40s and 50s produced a number of small school teams in Dubois County that were ranked state-wide. College scouts were frequently in the stands. It was a golden age for Indiana high school basketball.
