His name was Gary Simpson and he averaged 34 ppg. He was 6'1" and from Granite City, IL. Tough kid, tough life. Magician with the ball.

Not really. I organized a road trip to Bama in January and about 30 fans + the Stringer family gathered to hi 5 etc.

Not sure where the team is staying, but their routine is to leave their hotel to board their bus 1hr 30 mins before game time.
It's fun to crowd the lobby at that time and cheer the players on as they leave.
I'll see if I can find out where they're staying....

Me too. I was very surprised.........and maybe some of the players were too. Perhaps felt disappointed or let down. Less exciting than they anticipated.
