I never know what kind of stuff I'm going to find as I go through the Jack Gordon files. In a folder from the Restaurant Association for 1969, marked "Personal" came this clipping. It was marked that it came from the March 21, 1969 issue of the Catholic Progress. It's no surprise that Jack was able to line up the two college hoopsters from SU as he had been connected with the SU Athletic Department since 1946 and announced their home games at the Seattle Center Coliseum. Only six weeks after the game below Jack was honored as the SU Distinguished Alumni for 1969.
(Lou West was drafted a year later in the 7th Round by the Chicago Bulls and was named by Seattle University as the 29th best ever SU Chieftain. I did some quick googling and was unable to find how long he played in the NBA. Mike O'Brien is currently (2012) serving on the Seattle City Council.)

a salute to John F "Jack" Gordon, Mr. Seattle
