The list: Middletown High School’s greatest basketball players

The next night, Middletown will unveil its state of-the-art arena when the girls host Colerain, followed by the boys against Lima Senior.

Here is an alphabetical list of the greatest Middletown High School basketball players who spent their careers at Wade E. Miller Gym.

This list, which includes first-, second- and third-teams and honorable mention, was compiled after interviewing former coaches, players and longtime fans.

This list doesn’t include players who played in the Middletown High School gymnasium during the 1970s — which eliminated two great Middies, Archie Aldridge and Butch Carter, among others.
