Hawks Playoffs – 15

The Headline in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch the day this photo appeared said it all….’ROAR OF CROWD PROPELS HAWKS TO VICTORY’…after winning game five in L.A. the Hawks came back to Kiel on Wednesday, April 13th, 1966 and a beer vendor could have cleaned up selling ear plugs on the side, especially in the exciting fourth quarter! I know…I was there…and I’ve never heard a crowd like it since at a basketball game….It was hustle like this from then Hawk’s player-coach Ritchie Guerin that gave St. Louis a 131-127 victory and knotted the series at three game apiece.
