Last Friday I did a short post about the completely awesome basketball uniform that former ABA/NBA star George McGinnis wore while playing for his high school team in Indiana, the Washington Continentals (shown above).
That led a few readers to point me toward other cool Indiana high school hoops uniforms, which in turn led me down a fun rabbit hole. In this post, I’ll share some of what I found there.
First, let’s look at uniforms that, like McGinnis’s, feature an illustration and a number on the front, but no team name or school name (it’s worth clicking on all of these pics to see the larger versions):

Some teams had two-tone uniform designs, or just a two-tone jersey:

That’s it for the Indiana uni rundown. But I want to share one other thing I found — a program cover from March 21, 1970, which happens to be the day I turned six years old. While I was blowing out the birthday cake, here’s what was happening in the Hoosier State:
Oh man, how awesome is that? Love it!
