“I didn’t think we played well the first half and then I looked up at halftime and we had 51 points.” -- Coach Anderson after the Conestoga game

Raymond Central was victimized as much as anybody by Wahoo during the championship years.

On December 21st, 1963, Wahoo defeated Raymond Central in the first round of the Wahoo Holiday Tournament.  When Coach Dale Rasmussen looked at the scoreboard that showed his team on the short end of a 117 - 45 score, he commented, “We fell victim to the Wahoo mystique.”  The comment is probably fitting as mystique is “an aura of awe and power.”  By the winter of 1994, the Warrior basketball team could certainly be perceived as a powerful force on the hardwood and it wasn’t surprising that Wahoo’s opponents would be in awe of the team they were facing.  The implication was that Wahoo’s success was in part the product of intimidation.  That was also probably fitting.  The historical evidence was undeniable:  seven consecutive trips to the state tournament; six state titles in seven years;  an average winning margin of 42 points in 1993.  And although, especially in high school, each year is a new team, in Wahoo’s case it appeared that the 1994 version of the Warriors was no less awe inspiring.  In the first three games of the ’93-’94 season, Wahoo was undefeated, averaging 94 points to their opponents 53.  Coach Rasmussen’s comment was certainly justified, but it also implied that the Warrior success was somewhat dependent on a mystic power that wasn’t real, a fabrication of an image.  It implied that if a team could get past the “mystique,” that was a key to bringing down the Warriors.  By the time the 1994 Wahoo team left the court for the last time, most would agree that it was a powerful team, an awesome team, but not much of a mystery.
