I believe you're referring to Keith Denson. He did attend the U of Tenn. but didn't have much of an impact there. His younger brother Marcell led Orrville to back to back basketball titles in the mid 90's.

The only pics of that game would be in the newspaper archives at our local library.

Thanks for your interest, nice to know that something that happened over 20 yrs ago still sticks with you.

FYI - Keith is Marcell's uncle (not dad) as well as Mykel Griggs.

Thanks for the clarification (nice to know someone is looking at the archives.)

I never thought they were father/son....the years dont add up.....but did not know that Keith was his uncle.

Good to know.
