WRMJ Sports Director Jim Taylor visited with IHSA basketball legend Jack Sikma today. Sikma played in the Class A state tournament at small school St. Anne High School, went on to star at Illinois Wesleyan and finished his basketball playing days with a stellar NBA career. He is being inducted later this year into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and spent much of this interview talking about his rural upbringing in small town Wichert in Kankakee County.
