Elmhurst coach Mark Redding said he likes the intimate feeling of playing basketball at Memorial Coliseum as opposed to last year at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Last year, Redding and the Trojans won the Class 3A state championship at The Luke, the home of the NFL's Indianapolis Colts and a facility built for football.
"This is more what high school basketball is about," Redding said Saturday after Canterbury beat Vincennes Rivet 69-65 for the Class A state title.
Elmhurst lost in the Peru Regional to NorthWood.
Elmhurst, which could be closed by the end of the school, might have its star junior players going to separate schools next year. The word is that Purdue recruit Liza Clemons might be headed to North Side next season, while Wisconsin recruit Lacia Gorman could be South Side-bound.
Nothing is official, including whether Elmhurst will even indeed close.
