1960 East vs West High School Basketball All-Star Game Program – Connie Hawkins Roger Brown John Thompson

On June 29, 1960 at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, New Jersey, a high school basketball All-Star game was held that pitted High School basketball All-Americans – East vs West against each other as well as New Jersey vs. New York.

The rosters were chock full of future Division I super stars as well as future NBA stars and Basketball Hall of Famers.

What maks this game super historical is that it featured future Basketball Hall of Famers, Connie Hawkins and Roger Brown, who would have their college careers ruined by getting caught up in the Jack Molinas Basketball scandals of 1960-61.  They would later be exonerated, but it delayed their professional careers.  Nevertheless, they still put up stats at advanced ages in the NBA to merit induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

Also included in the game were superstars, John Thompson (who would become one of the greatest coaches in Basketball History at Georgetown – and a member of the HOF), Barry Kramer (Warriors, Knicks, Nets), Archie Roberts (three sport star who would end up playing professional football with the Browns and Miami Dolphins), Jay Buckley (drafted by the Lakers out of Duke), Dennis Lynch (drafted by the Knicks out of Yale), Joe Caldwell (Pistons, Hawks, and Cougars/Spirits of St. Louis in the ABA), George Wilson (Cinci Royals, Bulls, SuperSonics, Suns, 76ers, Buffalo Braves), Paul Silas (3 x NBA champion and 2 X All-Star), Cotton Nash (played at Kentucky and then played for the Lakers, Warriors, and Kentucky Colonels – also played MLB with the White Sox), and Jeff Mullins (Duke – played for the Hawks and Warriors as well as winning a gold medal in the 1964 Olympics).

Connie Hawkins was the MVP of the game with 20 points.
