Indiana prep basketball one up on the U.S. Open

May 05, 2009

A new book, "The 100 Sporting Events You Must See Live," by Robert Tuchman features five golf events, including the Masters, which is ranked No. 1, ahead of the World Cup and the Super Bowl.

Other golf events ranked were the Ryder Cup (21), the British Open (27), the U.S. Open (64) and the Presidents Cup (91).

Lists inevitably invite debate, but given that they're subjective, we'll avoid rendering judgment. Instead, we pose a single question: The Indiana High School Basketball Tournament Finals, at 63rd, ranked ahead of the U.S. Open?
