  • Book on Evansville basketball plane crash

    Not a lot of people are aware, but Evansville basketball had a tragic event along the lines of the Marshall football team plane crash. The Evansville plane crash happened in 1977.

    There is a new book out entitled We Will Rise that covers the story. If you have Amazon prime, it's a free Kindle download this month. It is written by an Evansville native.

    They have a very large display, with lots of newspaper articles and photos, detailing the events connected with the crash in the lobby of their basketball arena.

      I had heard about this, but never really read about it. Crazy that the one kid who didn't make the flight due to injury died 2 weeks later in a car crash. Sad stuff
      To avoid confusion - my username is baseball (Cy Young award) related, NOT for the Cyclones.
