Commentary: Basketball at 80

WSIU commentator Pete Peterson has told us stories about his days of playing in adult softball leagues in southern Illinois.

But, Pete also used to take part in lunch hour pick-up basketball games when he taught at SIU-Carbondale.

In his latest commentary, Pete tells us how a recent article reminded him of those days of going at it on the hardwood at the SIU Arena, now the Banterra Center.

Richard "Pete" Peterson is the creative force behind WSIU Radio's Reading Baseball Series. Pete's original essays and commentaries are a regular staple for any fan of the game.
