In the old and original Archbold gym before the fire. So prior to '47. Yes, I;m that old. Posted years back about what it was like. Meant to continue and pick up the story from when the new gym was built. Maybe someday i'll get back to it.When did you become an SU basketball fan?
Me: Started to get interested in the 1965-66 season when we were scoring 100 points a game but fell in love with the next year's team that was rebuilding but started out 19-2.
What was the first game you listened to the radio or watched on TV?
12/29/66: We lost to #2 Louisville in the Quaker City Classic 71-75. I listened on the radio and cried myself to sleep at age 13. The first Tv game was a 102-81 win over LaSalle at Manley.
What was the first game you attended?
2/25/67: The Sonny Dove game. We were 19-2 and St. John's 18-3. Who was the best team in the East. It looked like us most of the way but a couple of Sonny's dunks and we lost 64-71.
