Not only was I at this 62 point game, but I was also present for Beasley's  and Denis' 44 point outings!

Wow!

I wonder how many Cat fans can make that claim, in a non-alternative fact kind of way?

Not many I bet.

Unless they handed out those Ski Lift posters, where Askia was shown dunking a basketball while wearing ski goggles and holding a ski pole, and you're pretty sure that you still have it in a box somewhere in your attic or something, I will stay right where I am.

SleepFighter probably doesn't know what Ski's favorite type of pizza is, though.

I don't. Was it pepperoni and mushroom?

I do have one more riveting Askia Jones story though.

He found out that my girlfriend at the time lived in Goodnow Hall, and he must have liked her or whatever, because he showed up to the lobby of Goodnow Hall and called her. I was hanging out with her in her room, and she didn't believe that it was Askia Jones calling. So I walked down to the lobby, and it turned out that it was Askia Jones. I just nodded at him, walked back to my girlfriend's room, and said, "yup, that's Askia Jones."

That guy eye poked me so harshly during a rec game I am sure there are still remnants of his DNA in my cornea.

UPDATE I REMEMBERED:

point: 1 of the 5 people at Askia Jones basketball camp was A GIRL

counter point: her brother was one of the other 5 and he was technically too young to participate but was let in because only like 5 people showed up plus his sister was attending plus Askia was getting paid by the kid plus he had an upcoming pizza bill he knew about

Hey SleepFighter I can satisfy all 3 criteria.

1. Was at the Ski game.
2. Was at the Beasley/Walker Baylor game in Waco, and the Denis 44-er.
3. Have the Ski Lift poster.

So what do we do now? Well Big 8 rules at that time stipulated that you go to a tiebreaker, and that tiebreaker was this:

"...during the Ski 62-point game, were you and your younger bro working as ballboys behind the south basket mopping up sweat on the court during timeouts, and if so, did that high-ranking position allow you post-game access in which you could freely walk into the lockerroom to get Ski's autograph and subsequently accidentally see Belvis Noland naked?"

Big 8 rules say winner of this tiebreaker is awarded the oppy to tell the loser to suck my butt, so sleep fighter plz go ahead and suck my butt, tia

Also can confirm one of my best friends had a hamster named Askia and also that Ski told me I did a great job ballboying after the Fresno State massacre

I'm not competing against you attendees of crap and junk but I did just remember another IRL thing:

point: you got a t-shirt for going to Askia Jones basketball camp. they didn't have enough shirts at the Meade stop (didn't plan on an entire 5 people turning out apparently). this is an irl thing. like they handed out a couple and were like "damn, sorry. we ran out on the last stop at like Bucklin or some crap" (but using nice words kids can hear. and just using Bucklin as a placeholder for any tiny POS SW KS town)

counterpoint: Askia said he would autograph and mail shirts to sd and sd bud. we were hopeful but not confident this would happen. FAST FORWARD LIKE 2 WEEKS a package arrives for lil steve dave (probably first package addressed to me not from my grandma) and inside....a tshirt signed by BOTH Askia Jones and the crappy Henson brother that's not Steve who I don't remember his name and wasn't at the camp. Wore it to school the next day to stunt on a bunch of mennonite farm kids who didn't know about sports  :gocho:

 Brian Henson. Was ballboying behind the north goal at Midnight Madness one year when the lights went out and they got the spotlights rollin, then they pulled his cheerleader GF out to midcourt and he proposed to her and gave her roses. Not too long after, he transferred to Washburn. Always wondered if the two kids made it in this crazy world and junk. Also Larry "Bud" Melman appeared at that Midnight Madness and read a Letterman-style Top 10 list about like why we would beat KU's asses that year and all 4,211 people in attendance (and Darryl Cunningham) went absolutely apeshit.

Can't compete with the SF  stories but here's mine.

Went to the NIT game with a buddy.  Driving back to KC we listened to Bob Davis call KU loss to Purdue in Ncaa tournament.  Glenn Robinson had 44 pts.  30 in first half.  Bob asked coming out of the break " have you ever seen a guy go for 30 in a half?"

We looked at each other and laughed.  Yes, yes we have Bob.
