Teams work hard during the offseason and practice to gain an edge on the opposition.

Dunbar (Dayton, Ohio) gets one by simply suiting up.

“We
have to remind them every now and then cause sometimes they might lose
track of it,” Dunbar boys basketball coach Peter Pullen said. “Sometimes
they forget they already have an edge when they walk onto the courts in
this area cause they have that ‘D’ on their shirt. Our kids know about
the tradition and they come here to be a part of it.

“But they also have to live up to it.”

Dunbar is definitely living large. The Wolverines are 21-0 and ranked 14th in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 National Boys Basketball Rankings presented by the Army National Guard. Most consider Dunbar, which plays in Ohio’s second-largest classification (Division II), the state’s best team.
