I have a couple more that I should get to tonight. Does anyone have any requests? I have every television game that wasn't on charter minus Charlotte.

Is this [name removed] by chance?

Went down the proverbial YouTube rabbit hole last night and stumbled upon this partial 1988 game between SLU and Iowa in Hawaii.  

Looks like Iowa was ranked No. 4 at the time and we gave them all they could handle.  They had B.J. Armstrong, who won three rings with the Bulls teams in the '90s.  Per Basketball Reference, Iowa had FIVE(!!) future NBA players on that roster.

Anywho, lots of great Bonner/Gray/Douglass stuff here, as well as HC "Rick" Grawer.  And some quality local commercials from Davenport at the end.

Damn. I’m impressed you found and bumped a 10 year old thread. Good work.

Footes-the big chill-Newberry. Pretty good talent . Too bad Robinson and Footes were head cases.

The crowd noise in the Footes video is impressive. I never saw a game at the old Kiel but it apparently got loud in there.

Where did they play that "Chaminade Classic" game? Looks like a much bigger venue than where the Maui Invitational is held now.

Nice play by Armstrong to end it, by the way.

The Old Kiel was a great place. The upper balcony hung out near the court.

I hate the idea of having multiple threads for one topic.  OCD is a b----. 😄

My kids loved running those ramps.

I loved that place - the ceiling, lighting, and overall vibe were really cool.  It's unfortunate that the auditorium was demolished when there were numerous other downtown sites where the Enterprise Center could've been built.

It did. It rivaled the Arena at times.

Great games there vs Xavier...‘Take a Seat, Pete’ Gillen was their coach.

One game seemed like half the population of Evansville filled the upper deck, yelling Purple Aces. Went home sad, though. Place really rocked. Miss those kind of rivalries.

It was at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu according to the Iowa Wikipedia men’s basketball page. Looks like a precursor to the arena Hawaii currently plays in.

The days of having actual conference rivals - within driving distance! - seem like ancient history.
