Think you know basketball?

Dr Naismith

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/

  1. LIFE IS THE MOST PRECIOUS THING WE ALL KNOW OF- ESPECIALLY WHEN WE ARE KIDS.
    DR. NAISMITH DIDN’T HAVE THAT LUXURY! HE WAS ORPHANED BEFORE HE WAS TEN AND HIS FAMILY LITERALLY TORN APART BECAUSE OF SICKNESS. BE VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR CHILD HOOD AND ESPECIALLY HIS-
    BECAUSE WITHOUT “DUCK ON A ROCK” NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE NEVER EXISTED!!
