Ken Mink, 73 years old scores 2 points in a college basketball game

Posted by Admin in News

Ken Mink has just become the oldest baller in the world. At the ripe old age of 73, Mink scored 2 points Monday night for Roane State Community College. The AP reports that Mink entered the game with about 16 minutes left in the second half and attempted one shot in about three minutes. Seven minutes later, he went back in the game, was fouled and made two free throws.

“I found myself on the free-throw line 52 years after my last college game,” Mink said. “I said, ‘Just relax and shoot it like you know how to all day long.’ I just floated the shots in there. I’m in the books now. I can relax a little bit.”

He played ball during the 1955-56 season, averaging 11.8 points a game. However, he never made it to his second-year season because he was expelled for a prank he claims not to have committed.
