Not being a wise guy…In general, what is the level of play in Wilkes Barre?

[quote=“tundra, post:2, topic:1647”]Not being a wise guy…In general, what is the level of play in Wilkes Barre?[/quote]Not very good. Peter should be dominating just about every game they play.

Level of competition is medium - not big city like Philly or Pittsburgh; more like Harrisburg or ABE area. There have been some pretty good players who came out of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area in the past: Dave Popson (UNC and NBA), Bobby Sura (FSU, NBA) and Gerry McNamara (Syracuse).

Not too many teams with BIG men. GAR has Greg Skrepanek’s boy playing there and from all I hear he is a big boy, but I don’t believe he is Peter’s height and I think he’s only a soph. Should give Peter someone to bang around with.
