I'm surprised Laettner isn't first team. And surprised Girard isn't there with all the points he scored. Is that former Packers rb Dorsey Levens?

1. Levens played both football and basketball at Nottingham.

2. The 30th Anniversary of the Tournament in Glens Falls was actually in 2010. Might explain why Girard, Jimmy and Buddy Boeheim, and Dejuan Coleman didn't make the list.



3. MOOKIE !!

Wasnt Marbury's Lincoln team State and Federation champs (beating a very strong Christ the King squad)? Wasnt Marbury NY Gatorade Player of the year, a "Burger Boy," and pretty much a consensus national top recruit?
His absence is pretty remarkable.

I'm surprised Jonny Flynn was voted first-team and Paul Harris second team. As I recall, Jonny was essentially the "key" to get Paul. People here were excited about Jonny but were supremely excited about the opportunity to reel in Harris, who was the bigger get at the time. Maybe I'm remembering that wrong.

Also - can anyone explain Bernard Blunt's career to me? I remember him (I was about 12 when he was a senior). Was he recruited by SU? He goes to St. Joe's and averages close to 20 for his first two years. I'm assuming he suffered some catastrophic injury while he was there as his scoring output plummeted.

He finished his career as the all time leading score in St. Joe’s history. Broken knee cap senior year.

oof, broken kneecap. Yah, he was rated as #47 in the Philly Enquirer's top 50 Philadelphia college players of all time. Just wondered why his scoring dropped so much. That would explain it!

Kyle Reuter on this list is such a slap in the face to so many good and even mediocre hoopers from CNY. I mean dajuan coleman isn’t represented and he won 3 state chips.

How old are you and your uncle? Those names pretty much cover the 70’s through the early 2010’s.

He was probably part of some pretty good teams then.

6'3-6'4 guard/forward who was strong, quick and a handful to guard. He was one of the most dominate players in the state and one of the best ever to come out of the Syracuse area. He finished his high school career as one of the states top scorers of all time.

He was listed as 3rd in the list of top 75 CNY basketball players. Here is his bio in that list.

3: Bernard Blunt

Jamesville-DeWitt

Class of 1990
  • Graduated 1990 as Sec. III all-time leading scorer 2,507 points (5th all-time in state; 10th overall)
  • 1990 led Red Rams to state Class B title, was MVP of tourney
  • Headed to St. Joseph's from 1990-95 and scored 1,985 points (missed most of 93-94 season with fractured kneecap)
  • Signed as free agent with Baltimore Bullets in Oct. 1996, but didn't last
  • Played pro ball 8 years in Asia and Europe.

Also in 1993, for the Hawks, it was Bernard Blunt, a player with extreme pro-potential like Curry, but with a bona fide NBA scorer’s disposition. His injury was severe as he fractured his knee cap. The terrible injury was only three games into St. Joe’s year versus the University of Arizona Wildcats. Blunt was on his way to eclipsing the (at the time) scoring record of Craig Amos. He was a likely pro, until the injury.

Syracuse was recruiting Bernard Blunt. There was an issue that arose with a forged check and I think Syracuse stopped recruiting him at that point.
