MONROE - No doubt Jim Dearth would have been reminiscing with his former teammates this weekend during the 50-year celebration of a state basketball title that his last-second free throws helped put on ice. That said, he wasn't exactly the glory days type. "I remember how when he left home for college, when we had a basement full of trophies, scrapbooks and even taped radio broadcasts of his games, he left it all behind," said Chuck Dearth, Jim's older brother of three years.
