JIM: Spreen's most amazing shot might have been from Elroy, KY
Comments re article 49427 Howll we honor Evelyn West wo knowing where Elroy is at
To see the YouTube Video of Chase Spreen's 80 footer shot: Click to YouTube Video Clip of the Chase Spreen's famous 80 foot, three quarter court game winning shot. Turn volume on computer down before clicking if loud audio would distress others. At 4:55amCT, Tuesday, January 17, 2012, the YouTube View Counter had clicked to 797,791. - CM
The more pressing question than how we honor Evelyn West is this: What if Mr. Spreen had made his "Shot Seen 'Round the World" from downtown Elroy?
That might have been, you know.
In the spring of 1900, following a Great Confugality in Cumberland County, the Educational Committee of the Methodist Evangelical Church, South, Louisville Conference, withdrew its offer to build the new school there. Reported the May 15, 1900 News, "The committee will now make an effort to secure donations from Elroy, Adair county, with a view of locating a school at that place."Oh, but for the vagaries of chance! - Jim
