Pictures from the past in St. Louis sports…
Sunday April 23rd 2017

Here’s proof!

The Garden was host to the N-I-T Tournament, which habitually saw the St. Louis University Billikens in first, second and sometimes even Finals action…like in 1961. The Bills that post-season got by Miami, Colorado State and Dayton, but fell short in the N-I-T Championship game against Providence. Here Friar’s guard Vinnie Ernst, all 5′ 8″ of him, goes high for two points over Bill ‘Bevo’ Nordmann in Providence College’s 62-59 win over the Bills. Ernst, who passed away in December of 1996, was named the tournament’s MVP

The Hawk’s Bob Pettit gets a shot up and draws a foul from the Knick’s Kenny Sears in this early December 1960 NBA contest at MSG…won by the Hawks 139-133………
