Re: Week #16 - Games of Interest

Forty eight years ago, I was a junior at URI. St. Johns came into Kingston on a week day in early February. It was the day before the start of second semester. Raining all day the roof began to leak during the first half with numerous interruptions ( near the foul line of the east basket), until fin...

Ramulous - two good choices. Anderson came from Denmark and was truly uncoordinated. He would miss layups because he could not figure what foot to jump off on. Became a strong number five by his senior year.
