1957 Dunbar State Championship Basketball Team

Class of 2014

1957 Dunbar State Championship Basketball Team

The 1957 Dunbar Basketball Team went 32-0 the season they won the Prairie View Interscholastic League State Championship. The team was coached by Lubbock ISD Athletic Hall of Honor recipient Ernest P. Mallory. They were the first and only team in Dunbar history to have an undefeated season in basketball. The team was the shortest in Dunbar’s history, with only one player over 6 feet tall. The team played a fast paced offensive style with full court pressing defense, which caused many turnovers. In the State Championship game, the team defeated Navasota in the first round, tournament favorite Lufkin in the second round, and Baytown Carver to win the title. Three players from the team made All-State, including Olla Dean Chew, Jimmy Peppers and Don McCormick.
