    MBB Trivia

    Ok, so since it's slow here again, I thought I'd start another trivia thread.

    Out of these three players:

    Victor Alexander

    Kelvin Cato

    Jackson Vroman

    Who attempted the most 3 pointers?

    Who made the most?

    Don't need to look that one up its easy, Vroman. Big V and Cato never took a step outside of the paint.

    Re: MBB Trivia

    The interesting thing is Big Vic had great touch, he just didn't ever roam the perimiter like an Hubalek. Alexander was 18-63 from distance in his NBA career. My guess is, if he was playing these days, he would have significantly more makes than either Vroman or Cato.

    Here's another one:

    Four brother pairs have played for the Cyclones. Most people can probably only remember one. Who are they?

    I actually forgot about the Haluskas!

    I didn't count the Wehdes either...I should have said modern era.

    Good catches!

    The Waltons were the one I thought people would get. The others I found were:

    Stan and Lyle Frahm (not recent either, 50's)

    Jerry and Wilbur Sandbulte (50's/60's)

    Bob and Don Ziegler (mid 60's)

    It's the number worn by an Iowa born player to honor Chris Street.


    The answer to #4 is Loren Meyer, BTW.
