The 1957-58 Varsity basketball team was the most successful of the teams that have ever come out of Bentley High School. The team won the league title for the fourth time in six years with a 9-1 record. Then the Bulldogs won the Class A district title over Redford Union by the overwhelming score of 73-40. This was not the end for the Bull- dogs. ln the Class A Regional games held on their home floor, the Bulldogs downed Catholic Central to qualify for the final game of the Regional against a strong Pontiac team. The Bulldogs edged Pontiac in an uphill battle that was decided in the last minute of play. This victory moved Bentley to the quarterfinals against Dearborn Fordson, the same team that edged the Bulldogs last year in the Regionals. This became the final game that the Bulldogs played as the Fordson team whipped the Bulldogs 56-51. The Bulldogs season started with three non- league victories over Southfield, Farmington, and Thurston. The league play began the next week and Bentley dubbed Trenton 53-33 and Redford Union 70-41. This gave Bentley a 5-0 record going into the Northwest Suburban Invitational Tourna- ments. The Bulldogs came out of this tournament as runner-up when Southfield downed them 58-47 for the first defeat of the season. The only blemish on the Bulldogs league record was against the Belleville Tigers. This 60-58 cle- cision was decided in sudden death overtime with a long shot by the Belleville team captain. The Bulldogs got their revenge in the last league game of the season when Bentley defeated Belleville 53-51. The standouts on the team were George King who made All-League and All-Suburban teams and was high point man of the year. Ron Gabel and Tom Eveland were two of the boys that helped make the 1957-58 season the greatest in Bentley's history. Team elections gave George King most valuable player title and Tom Eveland most im- proved player title.
