Valdese High School basketball graduates from the 1960s gathered for a reunion on Saturday night at Old Rock School. Tigers hoops coach Ed Abee was a popular topic, with many of his former players thanking him for how he prepared them for life. Joe Brown, a Burke County Sports Hall of Famer who played for Abee before going on to play for coach Dean Smith at North Carolina, helped organize the event.
