At age 73, Ken Mink is still scoring.

He's the senior member of the Roane State Community College basketball team.

He scored two points in a game this week against the King College junior varsity.

Mink's team went on to win 93-42.

Mink is a full-time student at the Tennessee school.

He played college ball more than 50 years ago.

But Mink was booted off the team and kicked out of school when someone soaped-up the coach's office.

He still says he had nothing to do with the long-ago prank.

In Monday night's game, Mink got on the court with about 16 minutes left.

The senior citizen scored his two points on free throws after he was fouled.
