EDGEMONT HOOPS FLASHBACK

In the inaugural year of the travel program, the 2011-12 Edgemont Blazers–coached by Michael “Big Mike” Ferrante and Rob “The Wizard of Greenville” Sauerhaft–won the TCBL 5th-grade girls B championship. Edgemont Hoops salutes the 10-year anniversary of this team and its pioneering young women, who are now juniors in college!

QUOTABLE

Isiah Thomas on why the Lakers and Celtics were successful year-after-year in the 1980s: “Those teams were loaded with talented players, yes, but that’s not the only reason they won. They won because they liked each other, knew their roles, ignored statistics, and valued winning over everything else. They won because their best players sacrificed to make everyone else happy. They won as long as everyone remained on the same page.”
