Askia Jones 62 point game
« on: February 16, 2017, 09:31:15 AM »
I thought of this today for some reason. Maybe we will have a someone go off for 62 in NIT this year!  :runaway:

That team in the NIT was a joke too. Huge underachieving season, much more than this year.

Went to that game when I was eleven.  Left the game thinking Ski Jones was the GOAT.  Went home and drained endless 3's on the suction cup basketball hoop in my room.

I was at K-State, but I couldn't go to this game during spring break. I listened to the 2nd half on the radio. I went to the Mississippi State and Gonzaga games though.

Under the current NIT selection structure that Ski led Cats team would've probably been sitting at home and we never would've had this moment.

I played against Ski and the other seniors on this team, and Kirk McGuffin, on a barnstorming tour a couple of weeks after this.

I think I was nine when I went to this game. I would never have thought that I was witnessing the greatest single individual sports performance I would ever see in person. I didn't realize how dumb the NIT was when I was that age either though, so I really enjoyed going to all the games much more than was warranted.

I spent that afternoon walking around the washed out spillway. Man, that was cool. Then went to the game that night.

What a great day that was in Manhattan, KS.

I remember listening to this on the radio as a youngster....like so young I didn't know the difference between the NIT and the NCAA tournament.

I just knew that K-State was the best and Ski was really good.

I have no memory of this event and only found out it ever happened by reading this board.

point: part of the camp was to see who could do a wall sit the longest (wtf ski you lazy POS)

counterpoint: at the end of the camp (because we worked hard) ski did some dunks (of low/medium quality but nobody in Meade could dunk so it was amaze)

I was always the center. I was tied for tallest kid in my class from like 4th grade through HS and I currently stand at my all time maximum height of 6' tall. BUT, if you find some old Meade, KS football or basketball rosters you will see I've noted my height to be 6'1" as an intimidation tactic for the opposing team  :fatty:

If memory serves me correctly that Pepperdine doosh of a coach of ours pulled him out early or he could have had much more..  :angry:
Fifteen minutes later, when the Kansas locker room opened its doors to the media, the Jayhawks were still crying. Literally, bawling. All of them. I've never seen anything like it, and I've seen devastated college locker rooms -- after losses in the Final Four, the national championship game -- ever

I actually wouldn't be surprised if I turned the intimidation up a notch and claimed 6'2" by my senior year. I wouldn't put it passed me. I can't remember for certain though.

point: the camp wasn't even at the Meade HS gym. it was at the Jr. High gym which had a super low ceiling that if you threw the ball really high you could hit the ceiling and knock out a ceiling tile and get your ass kicked out of the little dribblers game by the lady referee who is also your mom's secretary.

counterpoint: why TF didn't they have the thing at the HS gym? I have no idea. weird in hindsight but as a kid I didn't think about it.
