SC Women's Basketball vs. Ireland (November 3, 1967)
This black and white video, almost eleven and a half minutes long, shows highlights from a women’s basketball game between Springfield College and the Irish Touring Team. The game took place at 7:30 p.m. on November 3, 1967 at Springfield College’s Memorial Field House and was played according to the international rules. Prior to the game, Lee Williams gave both teams a tour of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. Following the tour, they attended a banquet honoring the visiting team. Pre-game ceremonies included the introduction of both teams and coaches followed by a presentation of an autographed basketball and pins bearing the Springfield College emblem to the members of the Irish Team. In return, they presented the Springfield College team with a plaque. During half-time, Coach Bilik was also given a plaque in appreciation for his help familiarizing them with the international rules. Jone Bush coached the Springfield College team, whose athletes included Diane Armet, Shirley Banford, Kathy Beal, Margaret Bradley, Tre Cimini, Jean Drummond, Merrie Gordon, Savi Guatamadasa, Dot Johnson, Jobi Jordan, Sue Lundin, Phyllis Plotnick (co-captain), Jane Rosenkranz, Nancy Sanders, Karen Thompson (co-captain), Marge Tuttle, Chris Daniels, and Jean Umberg. Springfield College won 53-32. After the game, the teams enjoyed a social hour. Although there is no sound from the original recording, music was added to the DVD by the donor. The DVD is erroneously dated 1974.
