Had the chance to meet him a few years back and take photos of the story of the University of Utah 1944 NCAA basketball championship. He has been getting a lot of press lately with recent developments in the NBA.

Wataru "Wat" Misaka, World War 2 US Army Veteran, U of U 1944 Men's Basketball Championship, 1947 NIT Championship, NY Knick.

thumbs up Thanks, a nice story. I never heard of him before. I got the impression that most of Japanese Americans in the war were in the 442nd.
