Comment from Wm. Kelly Dude, '68 Kewpie; March 14, 2013

Charley – Yeah, but-for a lucky shot from the corner at the buzzer, Hickman would have won the state championship in 1968.  O’fallon Tech won by one point after Tim Vanatta had made two free throws to put the Kewpies up by one with only about six or seven seconds left.  O’fallon brought the ball down quickly and got it to a guy in the left corner who hit the winning shot. A real heartbreaker.
