I’d like to thank Jeff Welsch and the Missoulian for the great article and picture in remembrance of Melbert "Moke" Eaglefeathers (June 5).
I passed this information on to my brother, George Wood from Belt, who played against Eaglefeathers at both the 1971 and ’72 State C tournaments. George recalled that Melbert fouled out of the Saturday morning game in ’72. As a showing of respect and sportsmanship, Eaglefeathers walked over to the Belt bench and shook coach Wayne Durocher’s hand.
All who attended the tournaments during that time were treated to some great basketball.
