Class of 1969 - Henry "Dutch" Dehnert is credited with perfecting the pivot play while a player with the Original Celtics. He combined speed, good ball handling and defense to help the Celtics to more than 1,900 wins and two American Basketball League titles. Dehnert captured two more ABL Championships with the Cleveland Rosenblums in 1929 and 1930. The man whom the most widely used basketball shoe ever was named after, Contributor Charles "Chuck" Taylor convinced the Converse Rubber Company to make a shoe specifically for basketball in 1921. Over 600 million pairs were sold since his name went on them in 1931. Taylor was an All-State basketball player, played in various pro leagues for 11 years, and taught clinics worldwide. Class of 1970 - As coach at North Carolina from 1944 to 1946, Ben Carnevale led the Tarheels to the 1946 NCAA Tournament Finals. He compiled a 257-160 record in 20 seasons as coach of the U.S. Naval Academy, an astounding accomplishment as none of his players was taller than 6'4" due to Annapolis' maximum height restriction. His Navy teams appeared in two NIT and five NCAA tournaments. All are Silver Relief medallions. Dehnert and Taylor are in NM condition. Carnevale is in good condition; tip of nose chipped, slight scratches on background.
