If you’ve been in Oregon a while, you’ve probably heard about arguably the most phenomenal basketball team in the history of the state, tiny Bellfountain High. In 1937, David smote Goliath in Oregon’s version of the movie “Hoosiers.” Back then, all basketball teams competed in the same division. Bellfountain, a school of 27 total students, beat Franklin of Portland (2,100 students) in the state semifinals, then beat Lincoln of Portland (1,728 students) for the championship.
