    The steal was at Connecticut 88
    Doug Logan was going crazy in the background

    You're correct. Stevie went the length of the court for a dunk after a steal. We were down 4 with less than a minute to play. Hit a 3, then the steal/dunk. We were #1 in the country and stayed there for one more game until we lost at home to Nova.

    I think it was an outlet from Seikaly, who got the rebound, but it could have been DC.

    One week later was the infamous Kentucky blue uni game. :(

    Your right but it wasn’t length of the court. Stevie stole it as midcourt after they threw it dumbly into the backcourt.

    Was at that Villanova game. Worst game I have ever been to. Damn Greg Woodard with like 20 free throws in the second half! We lost by like 18.

    Come to think of it Elmer Bennett was also really bad for me. Ate at Grimaldi’s after that game! That’s where my family and Grandma always ate before or after the games. Had season tickets and drove from Binghamton. I couldnt eat after that damn shot.

    Cuse @ UConn. UConn inbounded the ball at mid court, The guy on UConn ran to the backcourt just past half court and Stevie jumped in front stoke it and ran in for the dunk. Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s what I remember.

    The original on Erie Blvd was the one I was referring too. When it closed we started going to Joey’s off Carrier Circle.

    Could be but the original Grimaldi's still holds a lot of good memories for me.
    Ask Dickie V. how much he liked it.

    This team with Coleman Owens Douglas and Thompson were the best foursome we’ve ever had
