    Yeah, he was, and he was also a 2d round NBA pick. He played one year with the Sixers and avg 1.1 ppg in 23 games. Then he had a decade-long run in Europe.

    Banks doesn't really remind me anything of Alvin Jones, other than that they're both big men.

    Wait, Yvon Joseph has a crazy ex-wife? Whatever happened to him after school? His progression on the basketball court was significant over when he first got on campus and was a key component of our ACC championship and run to the Elite 8.

    Legend has it that the night before the 1985 Regional Finals against Georgetown Joseph's ex-wife from the islands showed up in the middle of the night at the hotel where Tech was staying. Allegedly John Thompson had her flown in to mess with Yvon's head. He had a poor showing in the loss, although he was up against Patrick Ewing.
