It is not sheer coincidence that in a world divided by differing political ideologies and struggles for power, sport remains one of the few bridges between man as man. In sport, the accident of birth, race, creed or station is transcended by performance alone. Sport speaks a universal language of movement and morality recognized in every culture. School yearbooks, athletic association reports, and television rating polls redundantly confirm that Americans are deeply interested in and supportive of athletic programs. At the high school level, almost four million boys and eight hundred thousand girls participate in athletic programs. An estimated one hundred million spectators attend high school basketball games annually.
