It was a meeting of basketball minds on Thursday night in Avoca.
1999 Corning Community College grad, Jeffrey Anderson, has racked up over two decades of experience on the court as an official. Last year alone, Anderson had the opportunity to officiate over 100 games in the basketball season. That list also includes serving as a referee in the NCAA D-I Final Four.
On Thursday, veteran and young officials alike converged to listen to Anderson’s experiences and learn new techniques about the game. 18 Sports took the opportunity to speak with the Rochester native, and, to discuss what he hopes officials can learn from Thursday’s meeting.
