See Starkville, Mississippi's own Travis Outlaw's name on the door? Sweet to see him play here. I'm almost covering completely Joel Przybilla's name--one of my little Mama's favorites although she never could quite pronounce his name! We both liked Marcus Camby, too. Somewhere on the door is Mo Williams' name--a graduate of Murrah High School in Jackson, Mississippi, he played here last season. When I lived in Jackson, I was a high school teacher and librarian. Over the years, one of my favorite extra-curricular activities was keeping score for our boys' and girls' basketball teams, home games at the table, away games on the bench. In doing this, I witnessed lots of great games! And I got to see Mo play lots of shooting-the-lights-out high school ball whenever my school's teams played his or when our school hosted tournaments in our arena-style gym. At one of my season ticket holder perks last season, early entry to the arena to watch the Portland Trail Blazers warm up from right beside the court, I got to talk with him for a minute or two about those great days gone by. Neat-o!
