Legendary Indiana basketball coach. Member, Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. Mr. Crowe was also subsequently active as a public servant. He was a high school basketball star at Whiteland High School where he was the team's leading scorer for two years. He then starred at Indiana Central College (now the University of Indianapolis). After graduation, he worked at International Harvester before being hired as a teacher and head basketball coach at Indianapolis' Crispus Attucks High School. Paced by legendary star Oscar Robertson, his teams won two consecutive state championships in 1955 and 1956. His 1956 team was the first to complete a season undefeated. His "Tigers" became the first team from Indianapolis to win the state title and the first Black team in the country to do so.
