Sunday Conversation with Bill Heisler

Bill Heisler hit one of the greatest shots in the history of the Illinois High School Association's state basketball tournament nearly 22 years ago. His 3-pointer at the end of regulation tied the 1997 Class A championship game, and he finished with 36 points as Warsaw defeated Spring Valley Hall 92-85 for the championship. He was named one of the "100 Legends of the IHSA Boys Basketball Tournament" in 2007.
