Hey! I scored 32 points in a Gold Medal game!
Yeah, I know. Many have and even more stopped me from scoring that amount.
My ties with Gold Medal Basketball are scattered … as scattered as the swishes and misses over the years.
My birth town, Petersburg, won the first annual tournament in 1947.
Tom Thompson, Nels Ottness, Ernie Enge, Erling Nicholson, Tommy Wanberg, Chet Olness, Ben Norhind and Art Rosvald — all coached by “Swede” Wasvick.
Yep, some hefty heritage names there.
