Any Hoosier remotely interested in the history of the state that became known as “the basketball state” is usually well informed about the Milan Miracle that took place in Butler Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on March 20, 1954. It is the story of a small rural town in southeastern Indiana and how it pulled off one of the greatest upsets in sports history by winning the Indiana high school basketball state championship. In fact, the movie Hoosiers has helped to keep this famous game alive which pitted little Milan against powerful and heavily favored Muncie Central. Milan won 32-30 on a last second jump shot by the last of the small town heroes, Bobby Plump.
