Where Hoosiers Found Hysteria: Monroe County High School Basketball
Indiana’s love for basketball has been nationally recognized for over 100 hundred years, and it all started in Bloomington. Bloomington held the first eight high school state championships playing in gyms across the town and hosting teams at fraternity houses. Monroe County continued to add to its rich basketball tradition through unforgettable games and legendary players. From 1911 to the present day, Hoosier Hysteria has been a defining characteristic for Monroe County.
