Freshman year I was a member of Cleveland Hall’s after-dinner basketball team. I think we were playing Loose Hall, and with 20 seconds left, we were behind by a point. We stole the ball and called a time-out.
I remember saying, “Don’t give me the ball,” as I knew I wasn’t the one to trust! But with seconds left, and me standing in the corner to not be anywhere near the action, Dave Rosenwasser ’73 tossed me the ball.
As I heard the ref count down from five, I threw the ball with all my might towards the basket, and to my shock it swished through; we won by a point.
I even called my parents after the game to let them know of my “heroics” of that evening. I still remember the ecstasy I felt years later!
