#210 7 Footers - Where Are They?
The summer double issue of Sports Illustrated has an interesting article about 7 foot basketball players - where are they now? Turns out a gal I met while at Colorado Springs is married to one of them. Gwendolyn Gillingham played at North Carolina. Her sister, Heidi, played at Vanderbilt and I played against her in college and also roomed with her in Colorado Springs during a "big girls" basketball camp. Attendees had to be 6'4" or taller. What a sight we all were walking through the airport!
