      I have not seen it mentioned here but Walt Misaka died.  If you don’t know who he is, look it up.  GREAT Ute!

      I hope they have plans to recognize him at the upcoming football and basketball games.

      Wat was also a good NBA player and the first person of color to play in the NBA.  He was a great Ute!

      I remember Wat. My sister used to get me in basketball and football games during the forties. If I remember right, Leon Watson was the other guard on the team. Oh, yeah, add Arnie Ferrin and Vern Gardner.

      and yes I realize I should have typed Wat instead of Walt.

        I assumed it was the word completion feature on your phone – and that would have been the story I’d have gone with 🙂
