The Basketball Manitoba calendar now boasts a new feature which celebrates and highlights key moments in the history of basketball both internationally and locally.  Over 50 significant items have been researched and added to the new 'This Day in Hoop History' category of our web calendar.  These items will appear in the right column of the site as they come up through the year.  Everything from the birth date of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball to some recent key moments in Manitoba basketball.  This list is a work in progress and if you have a suggestion of a date which would fit well in this list, let us know!  To view the full list go to...
