The 1987 team was one of the most outstanding and fun to watch teams ever to play at Dixie. They featured a very fast paced team oriented-offense with exceptional passers and shooters. This team averaged 70 points a game while making 54% of their field goal attempts. Who could ever forget the 42 dunks? They also played a very aggressive man to man defense that gave up only 49 points a game and out rebounded their opponents by 12 rebounds a game.
