Hubbard-Radcliffe Team

Hubbard-Radcliffe not only won the NICL-West in 1998-99, they also made it to the State Tournament that year. Nick Eller was a senior on that team and sees many parallels with this year's Tiger squad.

The current South Hardin boys’ basketball team’s season sparked a trip down memory lane for Nick Eller.

Eller was a senior on the 1998-99 Hubbard-Radcliffe squad that won the NICL-West and made the State Tournament. That squad was the last of either school (Eldora-New Providence, H-R or SH) to win the league outright. The 1999-2000 Rebels were the last to share a piece of the title.

Nick Eller's teammate, Troy Tysdahl, looks for the hoop during the State Tournament. One thing about the Rebels that year, Eller said that they were unselfish and all five starters would be the leading scorer on any given night.
