Think you know basketball?
Had Dr. James Naismith still been living when Will Carpenter and Hellen Dodd met, they could have had quite a discussion about the game of basketball. Dr. Naismith was Hellen’s Maternal Grandfather, and he was the man who invented the game!!
On November 17, 2016, Dr. Naismith will be inducted into the inaugural Hall of Fame Class at the Small College Basketball in Evansville, Indiana. www.smallcollegebasketball.com
We’ll be posting more about the event and the nice recognition closer to the actual happening. In the meantime, please check out an earlier post here for more about this interesting man and his significant contribution to the world of sports. https://willdcarpenter.com/2015/02/10/559/
