0 “The Gang who Couldn’t Shoot Straight”: Memories from the 1960-61 basketball season
Cheers rose from the group of still-athletic looking men around the table, the five remaining members of that 1960-61 Championship basketball team: Jerry McCullough, Willie Straus, George Suleta and me, Franny Dick(son); all seniors in 1961, and Jack Volk, a junior. John “Rocky” Gianvito ‘61, a member of the breakfast group but not that year’s team, enjoyed the reaction of his old friends. Gar may have enjoyed it more than anyone, as he was the crack cub reporter for the “Atlantic City Press” who wrote that pre-game article on March 3, 1961. Both Rocky and Gar had played Rutgers basketball in other years and were Rutgers Hall of Fame baseball players.
