Updated: December 23, 2012 at 6:57 pm

A recent radio piece by Rocky Erickson on the Montana Sports Network focused on the Poplar boys’ basketball team in the mid 1970s.

The Indians moved up from Class B to win back-to-back titles in 1974 and 1975. The Indians were coached by Larry Ferguson, who went on to coach Butte High and Butte Central.

Erickson interviews former Poplar player Kenny Smoker, who credited Ferguson for the pair of titles.
