Ken Zacher was a white 31-year-old high school basketball coach from an almost all-white town in rural Oklahoma, and there he stood on a stage before thousands at the 1972 national NAACP convention in Detroit.
"I didn't know what I was going to see there that night," McNickle, now an assistant women's college basketball coach in Kansas, said. "But I knew Ken Zacher was not going to stand for that."
When the game announcer asked everyone to stand for the playing of the national anthem, McNickle said, Zacher's players all stood at attention, turned and looked at the flag and sang loudly.
