DAR photo by Paul Davis
I was asked Friday about a photo that ran in the DAR that had Tyler Hansbrough getting blocked by Charleston's Marcus Biles, a 5-foot-8 guard. Here it is. It's from the 2004, a game which was for the SEMO Conference title and featured two teams that went on to the state final four -- Bluff won the Class 5 title while Charleston finished third in Class 3, losing the semifinal in overtime to the team that ended up winning it all.

Hansbrough scored 35 points to go with 15 rebounds in Poplar Bluff's 100-90 win.

If you'd like to purchase a copy of the photo, or any photos we take, you can order them here.
