Re: What It Was Like Back Then
I was in elem then HS during that era.
There were lots and lots of people that got into Gamecock basketball during that era and the whole state of SC basically became a basketball state.
Some of the tourney games were during the day, so people had their radios on and would keep others abreast of the progress if possible.
In those days, the radio was huge...it was your lifeline to something happening in your imagination and the announcers were artists who tried to paint a mental picture for you if they could.
