Happenings A long the Campaign Trial
[From A Governorâ€™s Journey] Governor Jon Corzine goes for three points while visiting a street festival in Newark. Governor Corzine attended Taylorville High School, where he was the captain of his basketball team. He went on to earn his bachelorâ€™s degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana, where he also played basketball. â€œI was a walk-on in college,â€ he remembers. â€œThey gave me some minutes on the freshman squad, but my varsity career was at the far end of the bench. Thereâ€™s wasnâ€™t much need for a 6â€™2â€ forward at a Big Ten school.â€ By the way – he made the basket.
