The 1965-66 boy’s basketball team at Lincoln finished their season undefeated with a record of 29-0. On Friday, February 3, at 7pm, the team was honored at halftime. After 52 years, the state champions had reunited to celebrate their exceptional season.

The archives from 1965: “Climaxing an amazing season in which they went undefeated in 29 straight games, Lincoln’s varsity basketball team claimed the Peninsula Basketball Tournament Championship last weekend at Stanford.

The Lions bombed their first PBT opponents, Live Oak and Hillsdale, by the respective scores of 83-38 and 90-50, and whipped San Carlos 59-53 in the hard-fought title game.

In the first game, Live Oak led only in the opening minutes just before Ralph Ogden went to work and poured in 20 points in the first half to give Lincoln a 34-17 halftime lead. Ogden finished with 33 points as the Lions widened their lead in the third and fourth quarters. Jim Frazee hit for 16 points for his season high point game.

Although Hillsdale looked good after beating Blackford in their first game, they were no match for the Lions’ crushing offensive attack. Ogden once again tallied 33 points and Ken Errington supported him with 24 for his high game of the season. Sparked by Jim Frazee, Lincoln’s defensive effort befuddled the Knights for most of the game.”

Mr. Hewitson brought the team and Coach to mid-court to introduce them. Head Coach Richards called up his team one by one and introduced them by their name and former team positions. Then, the former team captain Ralph Ogden gave the current team captains Eyob Feisa and Samir Macias a plaque of the 1965-66 team. Before halftime ended, the Athletic Booster club gave Lincoln lifetime sport passes to everyone on the team.
