All-Time Eastern CT Basketball Team

With all the hype surrounding Kris Dunn and his storied career at New London, I wanted to see what everybody’s thoughts were in regards to where he stands all-time with some of the great basketball players in Eastern CT.  Is he top 5?  I would love to hear your starting 5, pick the team as  you wish whether it be a traditional lineup or taking the 5 best players as if you had to win one game for the championship.  Some names I would think would have to be on that list would include Tyson Wheeler from NL and Harold Pressley from St. Bernard.

    PG – Tyson Wheeler
    SG – Kris Dunn
    SF – Gerry Lancaster
    PF – Harold Pressley
    C – Matt Rollins

  2. Matt Rollins says:

    The only reason it was tough was because I played with Gerry and I know what he could do back then and Harold was real tough! Vin was tough too but I never really got to see him play since we had games at the same time. I guess if it came down to it I wouldnt feel bad replacing Harold with Vin.

    I agree I honestly think Matt Rollins could’ve been the best of them all but he played with some good players

      Leo, I think matt’s fab 5 would have had a tough time with the 1990 St. Joe’s CYO team. If you recalll that team had an unstoppable backcourt.

    Guessing here…Bill and Leo in the backcourt? Then Madden must be up for the John Wooden Award?

      I had a close up view of Will Flowers, class of ’88 from St. B. He was as dominant a player, against legit competition that I saw. He led team to win over St. Joe’s of Trumbull, ranked 8th in country at the time with 8 Division 1 players on their roster. Nobody stopped him, and that was playing against all L schools like Wilby, Warren Harding, St. Joe’s, etc. Will was better in high school than Lancaster.

    All due respect to NL legend… I played against Neil Currie in a tournament and I DESTROYED him! Just sayin…

  7. Matt Rollins says:

    Really Bill… CYO??? Wheres the love cuzzin??

    All you NL guys, lol.

    You leaving off Glenn Miller?

  9. NL Legend says:

    Truth be told its impossible to come up with a list. How do you compare eras. How many points does Dunn score if he played 15 years ago. How many points does Glen Miller score if he played 4 years with a 3 point line. Tyson would drop 60 a game if he played today

    • buscettosports says:

      I don’t think the game has changed a whole lot in the last 25 years or so, but your point about Glen Miller is well taken. That being said, make a choice. Is it Glen, Tyson, or somebody else?

      What about the girls all time team? Tracy Lis, Heather Buck, …
