Brothers Egolf team up for title [Basketball]

June 19, 2013

Brothers Will Egolf [second from right] and Ben Egolf [far right] of Haines were part of the victorious Alaska Peoria Pipeline team that won the top men’s division at the Gus Macker 3-on-3 basketball tournament over the weekend in Springfield, Ill. “I think it was the first time Will and I were able to play on the same team in over six years,” Ben told me. Will, a 6-foot-9 forward, recently completed his eligibility at Bradley University and is considering a professional career overseas. The other players were David Roos and Quentin Edwards, both of Illinois. “It was a tough squad so I had a pretty easy ride,” said Ben, a former ABA player.
