Joe Maniaci ('70)
Shownotes with related links:
When Joe Maniaci transferred to Dowling (then Adelphi Suffolk) in 1967, basketball was already in his blood. He had played high school ball in New York City with Lew Alcindor (aka Kareem Abdul-Jabbar). In these excerpts from an oral history conducted in January of 2009, Joe recounts how he wound up playing at Dowling, his memories of the school and most importantly, of the Dowling Golden Lions basketball teams of the late sixties.
