Was he the greatest basketball play in Parochial League history? That question can be debated but never answered to the satisfaction of all. But, Gene Fisch’s ball-handling wizardry was legendary. In 1959, and only a sophomore, Fisch, along with senior Dick Pospiech, led Adam Markowski’s Sacred Heart team to its first Parochial League championship and an unblemished 21-0 record. The next two seasons Fisch led the Hearts to two regular season titles and one playoff crown. He was the league’s leading scorer despite not even measuring 6 foot tall. He was rated the best player, pound for pound, during his time in the Parochial League. Fisch went on the play collegiately at New York University.
