The 2004 Clear Lake High School Basketball Banquet was held Thursday, April 1, 2004 at the Johnson Space Center Gilruth Center Alamo Ballroom. Consistent with their outstanding enthusiasm and support throughout the season, the parents of the varsity players, in devotion to their player sons, had the banquet hall very festively decorated in honor of the successes of the 2003-2004 varsity team. The evening consisted of dinner, recognition of the many people who contributed to the success of the basketball program, season reviews and team recognition for all five teams by the respective coaches, and the awards announcements for Falcon Hall OF Fame 2004 Inductee, George Wang Hustle Award, and Varsity MVP award. Clear Lake Varsity coaching legend Bill Krueger introduced former Clear Lake Intermediate Coach Jim Saxe as the 2004 Hall of Fame inductee.
