Fincher saw other side of pro ball
Janie Fincher figured her days of playing competitive basketball were coming to an end when she parted ways with John F. Kennedy University (Wahoo, Neb.) in 1974.
Turns out she was just getting started.
Former teammates talked the Fort Cobb All-Stater and Murray Junior College All-American into playing in an AAU tournament. That opened a door to a trip to Russia with an international team and to the University of Nevada Las Vegas for her final year of eligibility.
