Just ten miles away from our office is the historic Hinkle Fieldhouse, home of the Butler Bulldogs #GoDawgs. One of the greatest sports movies of all time was played on this court on the cold night of March 20th, 1954.
Hoosiers (if you have not seen it yet, watch it right this instant) is about the Indians of tiny Milan High School (enrollment 162) defeating the South Bend Central Bears (enrollment 1,662) to win the state championship.
Hinkle Fieldhouse was packed with screaming fans. A timeout was called with 23 seconds left in the game and a tied score of 40. When the five players gathered around Coach Norman Dale he began to brainstorm a play that the other team will not expect by avoiding giving the ball to their best shooter, Jimmy Chitwood.
The players express faces of concern. Chitwood confidently interjects saying, “I’ll make it.”
How did Chitwood have the confidence to know he would make the game-winning shot? Training. Through training, Chitwood had hit the shot 100s of times before. He had trained for this day. Winning the championship might be the most memorable scene, but there are many scenes before the final game of the Chitwood hustling through drill after drill.
