    He has been 50 years old for 2 o 3 years already. We stopped counting.

    Default Senior season: 73-year-old laces up the hightops

    "Ken Mink may be the first guy who can qualify for a senior discount during his senior season.

    Mink, 73, is a 6-foot, 190-pound newcomer to the Roane State (Tenn.) junior college basketball team about 35 miles west of Knoxville.

    He's likely the oldest person to ever play college hoops. To put Mink in perspective, Utah State's Gary Wilkinson will be among the oldest Division I players this season; he just turned 26.

    Mink played for Lees (Ky.) Junior College until 1956 when he was dismissed following a prank he still denies.

    Mink, an avid outdoorsman, said he realized he could still hoop it up when he was shooting baskets in his driveway last fall.

    "I had been knocking down shot after shot, so when I came in the house I told my wife, 'I've still got it,' " Mink told the Knoxville News Sentinel. "She said, 'You've got what?' I said, 'I can still play.' "

    Mink wrote to some coaches seeking the chance to play, and Roane's Randy Nesbit gave him a shot. Mink spent the summer getting into shape and playing with a senior team from the area in three state tournaments.

    Mink says he was a good high school player in the '50s and had several scholarship offers, but went to Lees because it offered a full ride. He says he averaged about 12 points a game until his dismissal.

    He can still shoot (watch this video from The Knoxville News), moves pretty well for a septuagenarian and has bonded with his younger teammates.

    Mink is unlikely to play for more than five or six minutes a game once Roane State opens its season Nov. 3.

    "There's a lot of complicated offensive and defensive schemes that I have to learn, but the other players have been helping me every step of the way," Mink said.

    I remember an article on a guy called something like Ron Anderson, former Sonics players in 1996 who was playing in N2 or N3 at 47. He was nearly not training, his body was too old for that, but made 20+ points per game there yet.

    Antwan Hoard of Besacon is a rookie in pro A at 36years old despit having played a few years in Pro B at least.

    Actually, for a 73-year-old fellow, he's in fantastic shape!! If I could look like that when I'm 60, I'll be happy.
