Vinny Zollo is a beast.

Remember Vinny Zollo?  Of course you do.  And if we still had Billy G at the helm, we’d be watching Vinny Zollo go hard in the paint next season instead of Anthony Davis Jr.  But Vinny is a WKU commit now and he’s giving those Hilltopper fans something to talk about.

Last night at the Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach, Vinny Zollo shattered the backboard on a contested dunk.  By the looks of the photo, I’d say the Myrtle Beach Convention Center uses extremely thick glass for the backboards or Vinny needs to hit the weight room.

As of now there’s no video evidence of the jam but I’m still on the hunt.  I’m also trying to find out if games in the Beach Ball Classic are played with actual beach balls.

    I used to live in MB and organizers of that event still talk about the show that Richie Farmer put on there back in the day.

    4) HAHA. Anthony Davis could shatter the glass too if he weighed more than 135.

    I was in myrtle beach for the beach ball classic. As it turns out they actually do use real basketballs.

    The website is beachballclassic.com and they have all of the games archived. You can find it all there. He plays for Clark County, KY

    UK should have never fired Bill G. He was all about Toughness and doing things right with blue collar players. I sure miss those days. Now we got a city slicker that will get us on probation. Sigh 🙁

    10. yeah, he was good alright. that’s the reason he has been snapped up so many times since he left UK.

    Nope, its played with small highschools and not much national fan fare. I actually went when my uncle coached a team in SC about a decade ago. Not a place to find a UK recruit, IMO.

    2034 !!!!!!!!!!! This first stuff is so dumb……….. #10 is so stupid,he bout Ruined Derrick Jasper for life because of his knee.Hes a GOOD kid and i still follow him.If we still had BILLY G. we would be undefeated and would have the best 2 star recruits — BIG SIGH !!!!!!Wonder if Kevin Galloway would be better if he was able to stay ??

    Say what you want, but Zollo is UK material. He would have been a Jared Prickett type player and that’s always good to have on the team. His court IQ is really good and he’s a skilled player. But yeah, I’d take AD JR. over him anyday of the week, but I’m still giving props to My Cousin Vinny.

    Haha I go to school with vinny at Grc. But honestly I don’t think he’s uk material. He’s not even our best player I don’t think. He might now even be our second best

    WOW, if WKU can somehow land KC RossMiller and Hunter McClintock they couls have a solid shot at finishing in the top THREE (of the SunBelt).

    Thank GOD the “Great Recruiter” was forced out

    The Vinny fiasco(in terms of UK) wasnt Vinny’s fault. The idiot choice to hire Billy G who is a great alcohol evaluator and skirt chaser(doesnt matter if you are a partially illiterate idiot if you have a few bucks) falls on the AD Mr Mitch Barnhart. But we all whiff sometimes. Rich Brooks was a good choice and so was Cal(so far) and Matt Mitchell.

    If we still had Tubby we would all either have been arrested for physical battery against either a UK official, or our family, or someone wo just looked at us wrong….or we may have had seven additional NCs…or I may have gotten the lead role for a remake of “John Holmes Story”…or

    No he is WKU material not UK material. Noway he is good enough to play for Ky when they usually get all top 25 recruits every year. He might have been Ky material when we had Billy G because the talent level was down or when Ky was coming off probation in the Pitino years. Right now he isn’t Ky material. He is WKU material, if he was good he would be going to a better college than WKU.
