Are you familiar with the inspirational story of Jimmy Lovley? As a young man in 1920 he left the small eastern South Dakota town of Elkton. His destination was Omaha where he became a Creighton University basketball immortal.
Lovley was an All-American and the only South Dakotan inducted into the prestigious Helms Foundation Basketball Hall of Fame. His career was legendary and is merely a single thread in the tapestry of basketball history in our state.
The South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame is proud to offer a speaker’s bureau to help you learn more about the state’s rich basketball heritage as well as the creation and evolution of the Hall of Fame.
