The holidays with all the running about and festivities are in the rear view mirror. In basketball circles, the conference play is upon us as non-league action is in the books. With the excitement of this part of the season comes a sadness and emptiness. George Rodecker, a good friend of ours and many, is no longer with us.
George passed away on Christmas Eve following an illness culminating with several weeks in the hospital. He was two days shy of his 65th birthday.
