Geert Hammink fights off a hungry Stanley Roberts…for now
LSU basketball celebrated its 100 year anniversary this weekend down in Baton Rouge, bringing many of the former LSU greats from years past for one final run in the House the Pete built and an announcement of the All-Century team (Brandon Bass? Really!? Over guys like Stanley Roberts, John Williams, and Jose Vargas? Really?!). Participants in the game included Collis Temple (LSU’s first African American basketball player), the above mentioned Shaq tackling dummies Roberts and Hammink, Vernel Singleton (better known as Jamal Duncan from the Hollywood blockbuster and Whoopi Goldberg vehicle “Eddie”…he’s often overlooked in that movie after clearly being overshadowed by the acting prowess of one Mr. Dwayne Schintzius) and even Pete Maravich’s kid (Photos and video here)
The most disappointing absence from the game had to be Chris Jackson…not half crazy no-National Anthem-saying Mahmood Abdul Rauf…but ankle-breaking, scoring-at-will-all-the-while-twitching-like-a-mad-man-thanks-to-a-healthy-case-of-Toureetes Chris Jackson.
