This Day in History: 1967-02-03
Coach Jim Slano’s Thunderbird basketball team surprised its fans by winning two in a row and climbing out of the league caller. The team had lost all ten of their games when they defeated Waldwick 60-45 and then Northern Highlands 63-51. Mahwah was aided by the return to eligibility of hustling Warren Carr who teamed with Don McFarlane and De Zurney to score effectively. Bill Riley scored 20 in the victory over Northern Highlands.
