Aug 3 The Best of GSU: Minnesota Basketball Legend Myer “Whitey” Skoog

It’s another gem from the Gopher Sports Update archives. Former GSU host Ron Miller interviewed Gophers and Lakers basketball legend Myer “Whitey” Skoog in 2011. Skoog played for the Gophers from 1948-1951. He was a first round NBA draft pick for the Minneapolis Lakers in 1951 and played for six seasons until a back injury forced his retirement. The Lakers won three NBA Championships during Skoog’s first three years on the team. Take a look back into Minnesota basketball history with the man who invented the jump shot.
