Dunbar Coach S.T. Roach, 1963

Posted on July 31, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by
Dunbar coach S.T. Roach emphasized a point which could lead his Bearcats into the semi-finals of the Kentucky High School State Tournament in Louisville in March 1963. Dunbar was to meet Clem Haskins and the Taylor County Cardinals on March 15, 1963. The Bearcats beat Taylor County 65-64 then Owensboro 60-47 to reach the finals of the tournament but were defeated by Seneca 72-66 in the championship game March 16. There is currently a movement to name Fayette County's new high school after the pioneering basketball coach who built the old Dunbar High School into a powerhouse and was at the forefront of integrating the high school game.
