    Default The rule of 3s

    3 guys from Washington
    3 guys from France (edit - or 20th century colonies thereof)
    3 guys from the former USSR (or at least behind the iron curtain)
    3 guys from Texas



    With half our scholarship players from abroad (I'm not counting walkons, since people don't move across the world to play D1 basketball without a scholarship) this our most international team ever.

    Good thread. There is one rule of 3 that I lived by when I was a player, "When I'm open behind the 3 point line give me the ball so I can nail another 3 pointer."

    Yes, it was... but he lists Ballo separately at the bottom of his list, so that's not who he means.

    Hate to remind you, Bornie, but the 3 didn't come into effect until long after you left GU...



    I remember freshman not being allowed to play on varsity until my junior year. IIRC, Reed Schifferman was the one of the last to play on a freshman team.

    There is one thing I'm sure of: we all had a better week than Antonio Brown.

    You flat out owned those peach basket hoops and those wooden backboards, Reborn.

    Reborn you must have also owned the jump ball at center court after every made basket, and the ladder they climbed to pull the ball out of the peach basket after a made basket . [I think it took about a year for the idea of cutting the bottom out of basket]. How old are you anyway?
    From the lucidity of your posts I must conclude your mind is as good as ever ....
