Most basketball fans are aware of the high school basketball mecca that is Oak Hill Academy. I imagine almost none of them have ever set foot on the floor in the Turner Build Gymnasium. On our last trip to Mouth of Wilson, VA we got the opportunity to do just that.
Walking into the home of the 2012 High School National Champions (also 1993, 1994, 1999, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2007 and Runner-up 1990, 1992, 2000, 2002, 2006, 2009) is more than underwhelming. If the walls weren’t covered in banners you might not think of this as much more than an outdated middle school gym.
Humble? Sure – but take a look around the home of multiple All-Americans, college jerseys hanging from the wall, the championship banners and trophies all this tells a much different story than the walls around it do.
