Entering last night's game versus Houston Christian Life Center (TX), Findlay Prep found themselves sitting at 11-0 after withstanding several charges on the road from teams hungry to knock them off their throne.  Last night had a different feeling.  It was the first game at the Pilots' home court, Henderson International School, where an opponent came in thinking they had a legitimate shot at pulling the upset.  For the most part this season, the Pilots have run laps around the competition at home, winning by an average margin of 48.5 points per game.  It was apparent that the 12-1 Houston Christian squad came ...

The competition promises to be ...

No. 1 Findlay Prep Begins High School Hoops Title Defense

By Dustin Lynott On November - 16 - 2009
When a team finishes a season 33-0 and wins the High School Basketball National Championship, the bar can be set no higher. As a new season began on Friday, Nov. 13, there was a buzz of anticipation, nervousness, and excitement in the air at the Henderson International Gymnasium. This was the first test for a team that enters the season as the preseason No. 1 team in the nation according to many high school basketball publications, most notably the ESPNU National Poll. However, this is not the same Findlay Prep team of last year. There are still three senior returning players left from last ...
