If you are into horror films then you should check out the new anthology film VHS. If you are just into VHS quality video, hoop history and unappreciated basketball greats, then I have the perfect video for you:  Presenting Alex English’s monster game of 51 & 10. Basketball-reference says he had 9 boards but LamarMatic, who owns the game, says 10 and how can you say somebody with a first name of Lamar could ever be wrong about something unless it was picking one out of a group of hot sisters.

Under Doug Moe’s run and gun system, English went 24-for-35 from the field and only attempted four free throws!


If this is your first exposure to English then apologies for showing you a past-his-prime English; He still averaged 27 points a game for the season but in the late 80s, his 30-point outbursts were usually followed by a 15-point or less game. If you want to be exposed to some footage of Alex in his prime, then check out the following “HD” mix.
