I noted with interest your brief article concerning Watt Misaka (Oct. 8). You left an important item out. As a point guard facing the great Ralph Beard, he was a key member — along with Arnie Ferrin and Vern Gardner — of the 1947 Utah team that defeated Kentucky in the finals of the NIT. I was 12 years old at the time, and I remember it well. Vern Gardner lived down the street from us in Afton, Wyo.
