Paul Nace was a starter on Denfeld’s 1947 Minnesota State
Basketball Championship team. His basket with 17 seconds left in
the semi-finals of the state tournament provided Denfeld with the
winning margin in a 30-29 victory over Mountain Lake. He was an
all-state selection that year.
Paul became a teacher, coach and athletic director
at Morgan Park High School. He also coached track, football, skiing
and drove the school bus to games. In addition, he was one of the
first coaches of the Denfeld girls basketball program from 1982-1987.
