Tigers News · Wat Misaka, Ogden Basketball Legend


Wat Misaka, Ogden Basketball Legend, passed away recently at the age of 95.  He was elected into the Ogden High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010.  I was fortunate to visit with him this past summer at a book signing that was held at the Utah Sports Hall of Fame Museum.  He was so generous with his time, and I will always be grateful for the chance to get to know Mr. Misaka.  He will be greatly missed, but we will forever appreciate the impact he had in the Ogden community.

Below are two articles in the Salt Lake Tribune and the Standard Examiner sharing the story of his passing.
