One of the most interesting stories I found when looking up the players was that of numer 28 ranked Loyd Price who has tragically been in and out of trouble with the law throughout his college career.

If anybody knows where any of the players that are listed as NA please let me know and I will update it.

Damn, Des Herod is a name I haven't thought about in years. I expected some big things from him at UNLV; he was a pretty good shooter and all-around scorer. Unfortunate he left for whatever reason, I thought he could've been a stud here in Vegas. I can still hear the Rebel announcer:

"THREE...POINT...GOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLL.....DES HEROD."

yes Boschee is coaching Barstow School in KC. He hired Jaron Rush as an Assistant, but that fell though. I think Rush is a coach somewhere now

yeah he is pretty much the smae player. but his attitude is sooo bad. He never wanted to come out of games always complained. I can see why he didnt make it. He told me he just got done playing over seas
