All-WNY 1960s team: How'd we do?

Here is all-1960s team, put together by News Sports Reporter Milt Northrop after discussions not only among The News staff but other local basketball gurus. His story is in today's paper.

The team actually consists of 12 years. It ranges from the first season of the All-Western New York basketball team (1958-59) through the end of the 1960s (1969-70).
