UCONN great and SCSU Men's Basketball Coach Scott Burrell Visits St. Mary School
Scott Burrell, one of the greatest all-around athletes in CT sports history, visited the middle school students at St. Mary School in Milford last week. A former NBA World Champion, UCONN legend, and current men's head basketball coach at SCSU, he talked about his days playing basketball at UCONN, being teammates with Michael Jordan, and the highlights & lessons of his career. Most interesting was what he looks for in an athlete now. He stressed the most important things are being a good person, putting school & your studies first, being coachable, respectful, a hard worker, a good team mate and ended sharing valuable pieces of advice.
