(WTNH)–You never know who’s going to show up at the Greater Hartford Pro-Am Basketball League. It’s part of the league’s charm. One night, you might see an NBA guy. The next, a UConn star. Or, both on the same night.
On Wednesday night, it was Waterbury’s Tyshon Rogers and his Harte Nissan team taking on the Hoopwave. The story of the night though was former Weaver star Mike Anderson, who also played at the University of Washington, dropping 60 points.
Also balling on Wednesday was Albertus Magnus College star Jhaquon Walters, who went for 22 points in the game. He said he made his decision to play in the Pro-Am last week:
“I told my coach about it before playing and he said I could play, so I was happy to hear that. I always wanted to play in the Pro-Am growing up. I played Division 3 basketball and the competition down here is way better than Division 3basketball. So I just love the competition, that’s why I came down here to play,” he said.
The competition should get tougher in the coming weeks, as Kemba Walker, Kris Dunn and Andre Drummond have all committed to playing, according to CEO Peter Higgins.
