One night we played Pembroke State at their place. In 1960 this “Indian school” in Lumberton, NC featured some tough fans. McComas had had a run in with an older player on their team. It seems the guy was really mad at McComas for not recruiting him. At any rate the game was tight and this guy was trash talk- ing McComas. With the score tied at the buzzer, the same guy tried to drive the
middle. There was a big block-charge call that went strangely to Atlantic Christian, the visitors.
Right under the basket, and in front of McComas, this irate veteran yelled in protest at the referee’s call. Along with his protest came his teeth, or more accurately his upper plate. As the teeth bounded and skidded toward McComas, Jack handed them to the player, smiling broadly.
