Question: The Field House witnessed the final game of what major-league sports team in 1960?

Answer: B) The Minneapolis Lakers’ final game was a 97-86 loss to the St. Louis Hawks at Washington University in March 1960. This summer, fans can enjoy pro basketball of another sort. The St. Louis women’s pro team St. Louis Surge is playing at the Field House in June and July.

Congrats to this week’s winner, Savannah Davis, who works in the Department of Psychiatry at the School of Medicine and will receive an “I Knew WashU” luggage tag!
