Area Sports: "Pooky" Evans Memorial set for August 10

Niagara Gazette — The Niagara Christian Basketball program announced that the annual Nate “Pooky” Evans Memorial Tournament will be held on Saturday, August 10 beginning at 9 a.m. at Legends Park on Portage Road.

The tournament is named in memory of a man described by friends as a “true competitor an cheerful person.” 

Evans averaged 20 points, six rebounds and six assists per game during his years at Niagara Falls High School, from where he graduated in 1972. After attending Niagara County County Community College, Evans went on to work at SKW (later Arco Alloys) for approximately 20 years. He died in 1997.
