A buddy of ours played at CSU in around 1979. CSU was playing New Mexico


On Saturday night. We went to what we thought was the CSU shoot around on Sat around noon. There was a group of what looked like students shooting around and basically doing nothing but F..ing around. They were out there for about 20 minutes. One guy was hitting every shot he took from ANYWHERE on the court. We all played ball in high school but knew this guy was pretty good. They had a tall guy out there too. That night CSU played New Mexico. The guys at the shoot around were Lobos. They CRUSHED CSU. And CSU was pretty good that year. The guy who was hitting everything in shoot around was Michael Cooper (the Lakers Cooper). He scored around 30. The tall guy for New Mexico was a guy named Will Smiley. He had just been released from prison after spending a couple of years for selling drugs. The coach was Norm Ellenberger. Google him. He and Jerry Tarkanian were close. Just an interesting story
