Doc Hurley All-Stars
The Greater Hartford Pro-Am summer basketball league is underway. It is held at a local high school gym. The play is at an elite level.
Last night three members of the UConn 2010 national basketball team -- Kemba Walker, Roscoe Smith and Tyler Olander -- played for the Doc Hurley All-Stars.
Kemba graduated in May. He was drafted to play in the NBA for the Charlotte Hornets, but he plays in this summer league to stay sharp and in shape. Kemba is number 25, scoring in the first photo and in the portrait at right.
Olander and Smith both started for UConn last year as freshmen and will return this year. Smith is scoring in the picture below.
In addition to current and former UConn stars, this summer league draws players from other colleges and recent graduates, including some who play professional basketball.
