Reinking to play on ESPN2 Thursday
Nate Reinking — a 1992 graduate of Galion High School where he is the career scoring leader in basketball — will be playing for the Great Britain men’s national team against the United State’s olympic squad in an exhibition game that will be televised live Thursday at 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on ESPN2.
The 38-year-old Reinking has been playing professionally overseas for 16 years. After graduating from GHS, he went on to star in basketball at Kent State University where he was a four-year letterman. He is seventh all-time on the career scoring list at KSU.
The oldest basketball player in the Olympics, Reinking’s primary position on the Great Britain squad is that of shooting guard. He may also see some backup duty at point guard.
