Dink & Dunk beat the Greatest Show on Turf.
- Sep 10, 2012
When I was a High School freshman, our basketball coach, a grad student (IIRC, Could have just been an upperclassman) at Holy Cross scored 16 tickets to the Round of 32 session behind the basket at the Worcester Centrum when UMass beat 'Cuse in OT. It was awesome.Ha. My alma mater is UMass I was there in the glory days of Marcus camby, lou roe, donta bright, Dana dingle and Edgar Padilla. Hell of a squad. UMass and UConn were 1 and 2 in the country back then. Had to hold down my UConn roots tho. Took a lot of heat up in Amherst for that. Great time to be in southern New England for college hoops. Incredible.
Folks in Massachusetts didn't have a lot to cling to in the early 90s, sports-wise. UMass and BC started to emerge ahead of the pro teams. It was kind of exciting to watch local upstart underdogs.
I still have the ball cap from that game (even though it hasn't fit my head in 20 years)...I still went to UConn...Still hate 'Cuse (and BC).
