Dunbar boys basketball was an established state power but had lost its relevance when Pullen took over. That immediately changed as the Wolverines won Division II state championships in 2012, ’10, ’07 and ’06. Those title teams were the highlights of an incredible run of a half-dozen state final four teams from 2005-15.
