Emerson Houck and his wife Jane have traveled the roads of Indiana for many decades seeking the stories of little and big high school basketball teams. Houck s interest in Hoosier basketball began when he was a student at Dartmouth College and his family moved to Indianapolis from Oak Park, Illinois. He saw Indiana basketball games at their best during that year: Shortridge vs. Crispus Attucks, the city tournament, the Sectionals at the Butler Fieldhouse. He was hooked. Since that time he has become a patron and director of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, written articles for its magazine Basketball History and penned a book on national team mascots and logos, Go Huskies! Beat Felix the Cat! He is a retired Eli Lilly and Company executive and a Hanover College Trustee, emeritus. He and Jane live in Indianapolis and have three grown children and seven grandchildren.
