The South Dakota High School Basketball Hall of Fame is honoring one of the outstanding teams in state history. The 1963 Sisseton Redmen are being recognized as a Team of Excellence, 48 years after capturing the Class A state championship. Finishing a perfect season with a 25-0 record, it was only the third time in state history that a team had gone undefeated in the “A” ranks.
The Redmen defeated Gregory 65-37, Sioux Falls Washington 42-33 and defending champion Brookings 58-42 to win the first “A” state tournament played at the Sioux Falls Arena. The five starters — Jack Theeler, Myron Moen, Simon Schloe, Bob Hull and Bob Brewster — all went on to play college basketball.
