  • Past Basketball Old-Timers of the Year Award winners Walt Milroy and Roman Miller. "Who let that young guy in here!"
  • Al Rossi welcoming long time board member "Boody" Gilbertson. Boody is thinking, "Al, I thought you were much taller!"

  • Looks like Bing Dahl lost his train of thought when accepting his Old Timer of The Year award.

  • Dave Cox tells the punch line while Frank Bosone picks his pocket.

  • Les Habegger explaining the three-seconds-in-the-key rule.
  • Les Whittles and Bill Kirk listen as Jim Van Beek demonstrates his free-throw technique.

  • Basketball OldTimers' media corps: Ron Belcher, Bud Winters, Craig Smith, Dwight Perry, Dan Raley, Jim Cour, and Tom Kelly. Not a front-runner in the bunch. They tell it like it is!
  • Bob Hougregs and Eldridge Recasner. Two of the all-time best at UW.
  • Don Lorentz just doesn't get it as Ralph Heyward delivers the punch line.
  • Frank Guisness very happy someone (Les Habegger) remembers how great he was.
