I missed the "other" in your post. I saw Markus dunk in practice once. I imagine some of the others could but I can't remember any of them doing it in a game

I believe Spud had a '48 and Nate Robinson  had a '45.  Muggsy had a '44 but couldn't palm the ball.  Mannigault had a '50 and was 6'1 at best.

Menninger by far, Al thought the Alcindor rule hurt Menninger more than the big guy

I would not call The Dream diminutive. He was nothing like the others mentioned.His game was at the rim and he didn’t out jump people. He was just crafty and quick.

How are you and Mrs. Gato doing?  He's listed at 6'0 which is my criteria.

Holy Hell.  I totally forgot about Dominic.  Inexcusable.  We've had a number of cool little guys.

Just checked,  Mr. Green was 6'1" so he misses MuggsyBs 6'0" cutoff

Thanks Wades.  Yes I could.  Pretty much anything you wanted from tomahawks to 360s.  However, I'm too tall at 6'2" and of course Rec League only.  But I appreciate the compliment.

Now another short guy who could fly during my time at MU was the walk-on, Mark Harris

SHEESH!  Thanks for the clarification.

I'll have to take your word for it. I never saw him play and his career numbers don't jump off the page: 4.7 ppg, 1.0 rpg, 1.1 apg. Though I don't know how accurate the old record books are.

Meaningless stats.  KenPom efficiency is what tells the real story.

Sadly, we don’t have that information from that era.  We’ll have to rely on the Joe Beer Gut stats

Okay.  Ty for getting the facts here.  My cutoff is non-negotiable.  :)

Could any of these other guys dunk?  I was just curious.
Cordell Henry dunked and also had an epic vertical.

Rosenberger was well under 6'. He was listed as 6' but was substantially shorter than me (a good 3-4 inches).  I was 6'2" at the time.

Diener is listed at 6'1" with a Miller Lite can balanced on his head.

Butch is 65 or 66 years old. If he WAS 6’0” in 1978 he probably IS about 5’10” now.

Who's our starting all heavy team??  Is it alright if I slot Davante somewhere?  What a shame he lost focus his Sr. year.  I'm pretty sure he got up to 305 lbs.
