Leading the best

From that very first drive to Sandy Creek Public Schools, taken back in the fall of 1978, Russ Ninemire had no way to predict what his future would look like moving forward.

Little did he know, that almost 40 years later, his name would be a leader in the world of girls basketball, not only in the state of Nebraska, but nationwide.

Ninemire will serve as the head coach for the West Team in the annual McDonald’s All-American basketball game, slated for Wednesday, March 29, at the United Center in Chicago, home of the Chicago Bulls. This will be the 16th year for the girls game. Tipoff is slated for 4 p.m., and will be televised live on ESPN2.
