In a scene that was repeated many times during the '89-'90 season, four players from the end of the bench get ready to enter the Fort Calhoun game: Justin Anderson, Jeremy Herrmann, Joel Weyand, and Ryan Glock.

Jeremy Herrmann not only scored the 3-pointer that set theClass B scoring record at 130, he made the previous basket that had tied the record at 127.

"I didn't realize we set a state record until I got up this morning and read it in the newspaper." -- Coach Anderson

Introduction -- a lot to talk about

Fort Calhoun
The Warriors had three freshmen and two sophomores on the floor. As the clock ticked down to under 30 seconds, Joel Weyand drove the middle of the lane and kicked the ball out to Justin Anderson on the left wing. Anderson threw crosscourt to Jeremy Herrmann who launched a three pointer. Swish! The scoreboard advanced from 127 to 130 ......

It was Tuesday night, January 23, 1990 -- Wahoo was playing Fort Calhoun in the first round of the Capitol Conference Tournament. If you’d just walked into the Wahoo gym, you might have thought you’d walked in at the end of the junior varsity game with the fans still anticipating the varsity contest. You might have thought the score to be 27 - 17 to begin with and then been shocked to see 130 points scored in a j. v. game. But as you looked to the Wahoo bench and saw the starters, Randy Hoffman, Troy Johnston, Jason Glock, Steve Volin, and Ryan Eddie, along with other varsity team members Bernie Inbody, Scott Latham, Mike Dvorak, and Trent Toline sitting there, the reality would set in that this was the end of the varsity game. And the further reality was that Jeremy Herrmann had just set a new state record.

That game reveals a lot about the 1989 - 1990 Wahoo Basketball season. Nobody in attendance was aware at the time that the 127 had tied the Class B state record for points scored, and that the 130 had broken the record. In fact, there wasn’t even a roar from the crowd as the basket was scored -- just the usual approving applause. In contrast, in the previous season, when Wahoo went over the century mark against Ashland, the gym was rocking with enthusiasm. But in 1990, this was already the fourth time the Warriors had gone over 100. The game itself was the highest level of mismatch. Wahoo, as the top seed, was playing the 8th seed, the bottom team, Fort Calhoun. A little over a week before, the Warriors had downed the Pioneers 105 - 22. In the words of Coach Mick Anderson, it was a game that “shouldn’t have been played.” So as players, coaches, parents and fans milled around the court and the gym began to empty, the usual discussions began. They would be repeated over and over in newspaper columns, across family dinner tables, and among those gathering at local coffee shops. Was Wahoo really that good? -- Could they be Class A champions if given the chance? Was Coach Anderson and his team “running up” the score on lesser opponents? How many records would this team set? How far could the Warriors extend that win streak?

Wahoo set a Class B record, scoring 130 against Fort Calhoun. It was a repeat of the meeting two weeks before when Wahoo ourscored the Pioneers 105 - 22. Coach Anderson called the game a "mismatch" and said of the record, "Even though you win by a score like that and you set a school record, you're embarrassed by the mismatch."

“We’re not taking a lot of pride in scoring 130 points against Fort Calhoun. This is one record you don’t want unless it’s 130 - 110 or 130 - 120 or something like that.” -- Coach Anderson
