3-on-3….Best Ever!

Twenty-One, Taps, and H.O.R.S.E. were all regular parts of the free-time recreation buffet on Hill Court.  But 3-on-3 was the lynch pin of all of those “pick-up” games and true bragging rights were at stake.

It was announced this week that they are adding 3-on-3 Basketball to the Olympics in 2020.  Which prompted old, nostalgic minds who edit this website to think, who were the best 3-on-3 counselor or camper tandems of their eras at Saginaw.

So here are a few candidates of the 3-on-3 Best Ever designation:

Counselor 3-on-3 Teams:

1957- Eddie Abrams-Marty Miller-Hank Aberman

1962- Hank Aberman-Larry Abrams-Butch Thomas

1965- Hank Aberman-Stan Wexler-Pete Vantine

1966- Stan Wexler-Mike Bratman-Sandy Lipstein

1968- Stan Wexler-Harvey Forman-Jack Weiss

1969- Jack Weiss-Stan Wexler-Jack Wilen

1970- Jack Weiss-Ethan Lock-Cary Reines


Camper 3-on-3 Teams:

1968- Cary Reines-Steve Greene-Brian Redman

1969- Brian Redman-Jamie Wilen-Paul Sherr
