This Day in Dayton, 30 August

"One Lafayette player makes 'Hoosiers' finals" read a headline in the Journal and Courier on August 30, 1985. But Mike Ricks has Dayton connections. He is the son of Bob and Pat Ricks. He was called back for a third audition for the basketball classic tale of little Milan High School's win of the State Basketball Tourney in the 1950s. Three other Lafayette hopefuls had a second audition, but never got that call for the third audition: Mike Newell, Sean Fitzergald, and Tim Williams.
