But nostalgia was on the mind of those in attendance.
School officials conducted the first alumni game Saturday, with approximately 20 former players participating.
Former players such as Kenny Rowan, Michael Workman, Mark Parkey, Bill Sampson, Jonathan Bradshaw, Brooks Lear, Nick Sanders, Zach Sheese, Bowie Johnson, Dustin Montgomery and more played in Saturday's game.
The teams, wearing gray and red Northview Alumni T-shirts, were coached by former NHS coaches Jon Crooks and Mitch Lancaster.
"I was excited. I haven't been on a basketball court in about 20 years," Parkey said. "I jumped at the chance to do it. I stay in contact with a few (former teammates), mostly local."
After graduating, Parkey eventually moved to the Indianapolis area, but moved back to Brazil approximately eight years ago. He currently works for Caterpillar, based out of Indianapolis, in sales.
While playing at Northview, Parkey was a guard.
Bill Sampson, a 1991 Northview grad, also enjoyed Saturday's opportunity.
"It's been about 10 years since I played any ball," the former Northview center said. "I thought I'd come out and have a little fun."
After graduating from Northview, Sampson joined the military. Currently, he owns and operates a martial arts business as well as working for Great Dane.
In the end, DeHart said Coach Crooks' red team was victorious, 73-62.
"Coach Crooks has bragging rights for a year," DeHart said. "Everything turned out really, really well. I was very, very happy with it."
