[quote="CAPPY, post:248, topic:2735"]Nice to see Claxton back in town too.
To quote a family friend, "There aren't enough o's in the word 'smooth' to describe that kid." Geary had game.
You can't help but love what Pat is doing with the alumni. Maybe previous coaches had former players back but it didn't seem as visible as it does now. This is yet another way to build a basketball tradition, especially when we start having a few more NBAers :)
I think it's just a matter of visibility - and you can credit that to the prevalence of social media. A decade ago there were plenty of them around but without Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, how was the average Joe Schmo going to find out? I used to see Lisicky, Earl, Crispin, Sekunda, Tyler Smith and others all the time (Crispin, Sekunda, and Smith particularly since they actually moved back here). For a couple of years after they graduated, Luber, Morrissey, and Walker were also regulars back in town.
