1951 Lubbock State Championship Basketball Team

Class of 2014

1951 Lubbock State Championship Basketball Team

The 1951 Lubbock High School Basketball Team, led by Coach Dave Cook, went 29-3 the season they won the 2A State Championship. They defeated Austin High School in the championship game, beating them 44-43. Lubbock had built up a large third quarter lead, but Austin came back in the fourth quarter. Bobby Day stole the ball from the Austin team in order to score the winning basket in the last seconds of the game. The team was greeted by 5,000 fans in their “welcome home” pep rally. The championship title achieved by the basketball team helped spur on the Lubbock High School Football Team to win State the following two years.
