Nice find and fond memories.

Love this:

“A lot of times, when we play away, they’ll talk stuff, for sure,” Rogers told the Rock Hill Herald of the heckling he receives from opposing fans. “They’ll all be like, ‘you’re the small guy,’ but when I’m on the court, they’ll start giving me some ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs.’ I start having a lot of fans from other crowds, and that’s pretty great.”

That sure sounds a lot like his pops, who was impossible not to root for during his career at GW. I still remember Rogers carving up Maryland in the championship game of the 1997 BB&T Classic.

Rogers led George Washington to three NCAA tournament appearances from 1996 1999, holds the school record for career assists and steals and was named the 1999 Atlantic 10 player of the year. The Baltimore native was a sixth-round selection in the 1999 CBA Draft and then enjoyed a decade-long career playing for teams in Europe.

Definitely my favorite Colonial, and might be my favorite basketball player of all time.

How did a line-up of King, Rogers, Yegor, Koul and Ngongba not destroy people?!

Time for Darnell to commit for good to his father's alma mater.
