New Castle is a city in Henry County, Central Indiana. Like Anderson and Connersville and other cities in the area, it had a manufacturing heyday for a period before economic changes swept in. But, if there's one thing New Castle seems to take seriously, it's basketball, with purportedly the biggest high school gym in the country and the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.
