2019 Girls Legends of the Game

Centennial High School 1993

The IHSAA is pleased to honor the 2019 girls’ basketball “Legends of the Game”, the 1993 Centennial Patriots. With an overall season record of 25-1, this team won the school’s first-ever girls basketball state championship in one of the most exciting title games in Idaho’s history. Centennial was favored to contend for the title coming in to the tournament and led by as much as 15 points in the third quarter of the championship game. But with seconds left on the clock, their opponent took the lead for the first time in the second half. With one last chance, senior Andrea Baxter drove to the basket and took an off-balanced shot to win it all. The ball bounced off the backboard, rattled around the rim and finally dropped through the net as the buzzer sounded. Champions!

Led by legendary coach, Emery Roy, the Centennial Patriots set a new bar for excellence at CHS and inspired future generations of state champions.

2019 Boys Legends of the Game

Teton High School 1976

After winning the 1975 state title, the Redskins headed into the state tournament with one thing on their mind…. bringing home a second consecutive state championship. Teton, the pre-tournament favorite, was riding a 38-game winning streak and took care of their first two opponents of the tournament handily. The Redskins would face a very familiar foe in the championship game, Glenns Ferry. The same team they defeated in ’75. Down by one with less than a minute to play, Teton called on senior Larry Bergeson and junior Gary Furniss to lead the team down the stretch. Teton forced a series of turnovers late in the game to win the title by five, 43-38. Bergeson finished with 19 points and Furniss added 14 rebounds to clinch the championship. The Redskins would win a third consecutive state title in 1977, cementing their place in Idaho basketball history.
