The best players I have played against: Harrison Barnes, Royce White, Rodney Williams

Rodney Williams took off from the free throw line and dunked on one of my teammates, Andrew Crosby.
Harrison Barnes crossed me over and jammed, multiple times.

Share any good stories.

I believe he is speaking of Almir Krdzalic. I have heard that the "Blur" has been looked at by some big time schools in North Carolina.

I played both with and against Jeff Bouschee and he made me and others feel stupid when you tried to guard him. The great thing about him is that he was in is such a good guy that after the game, you didn't feel that upset about it.

Football wise:
I would have to say the best player I played with was Rob Hunt the guys was All State in High School, was All American at NDSU, and was a NFL draft pick.
Best player I played against I would have to say was Kyle Steffes all I can say is the kid was a stud.

Basketball wise:
Best player I played against I would have to say Evan Lindahl

Baseball wise:
Best player I played with would be Sam Lucier
Matt Houdek. @ndfan55

Played with and against a few. I grew up in Newburg, so I only watched as the silver fox coached those great teams to the 80's state tourneys. I moved to Crosby and was there for a few years and was freshman back when Rob Stefonowicz was Senior, so had to chase him in practice. High school years there played against and had to try and slow down Hunter Berg from Grenora. Dustin Undlin from Mohall was pretty darn good.

The best that I have played against is a long list, however jeff boshee, russ archambeau, joe bearstail, kenny younger. The best that I have played with, just playground ball was probably bart manson, or tyson parisien.

This is somewhat awkward, but I played against one of the nation's highest recruited football players, in basketball. He was on the same team as Rodney Williams and Royce White.

Royce White and Rodney Williams are both Minnesota players. White plays for Hopkins and Williams for Robinsdale Cooper. They are both U of M recruits and very highly touted nationally. Not exactly sure of the relivance of these two to a ND preps website, but whatever. If someone here played against them then I guess. . .

It is relevant simply because its the point of the topic. I know some North Dakota guys played against Greg Oden and the like. I'm interested in seeing who has played against whom.
