Oregon's Original Scoring Champion was from Vida
Easily the highest scoring player in the area, Minney's mastery of a basketball was known throughout the league and region. It came with a relentless work ethic, college coaches had to have been lining up to offer scholarships.
But nobody called.
Nobody called with a scholarship after Minney scored 50 points in the county championship game, singlehandedly outscoring the opposition. Nobody called with an offer despite a 57 points per game average as a sophomore.
Unfortunately Minney grew up 70 years too early. Before Facebook, YouTube, recruiting services and AAU basketball.
