The 1972-73 Rocky Mount boys hoop team to be honored at Glaxo

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the GlaxoSmithKline Holiday Invitational Basketball Tournament, the members of the original four teams (Rocky Mount, Garner, Sanderson, Kinston) that played in the inaugural tournament are being invited back to the event and will honored during the week of play.

And of course, the current teams from those schools will play in a special bracket of the tournament this December at Broughton's Holliday Gym.

In case you don't remember who was on that '72-'73 team that won that first championship, here are those 12 gentlemen and the class they graduated in - including MVP Phil  Ford.
