Who does everyone think is the best basketball player/team that anyone has ever seen go through Benton High School? Well mine would have to be the Class of 08'. They had a great team as freshman but didnt stick together BECAUSE OF MATT WYNN. They had a lot of potential and talent!

Ya if Jo Jo had his head on straight, he coulda been somebody. I never got to watch him play except for a little film in Shurtz's class.

There has been a lot great basketball players that played for Benton . Doug Collins , Bruce Baker , Herrin boys , JO JO Johnson , His dad , Shurtz boys. Benton was a big basketball town in 60s , 70s and early 80s . Benton Basketball has not been the same since Rich Herrin left.

all four of then rod carl steve and jeff, Rod was probably the best. But Rich yunkus , Doug collins, Danny Johnson,Greg Fuston, Rich Herrins two boys(cant think of the oldest first name),kyle was the youngest, Rob Hammond,Rob williams, tim wills. Mark Peters, the other four Peter boys were very good,but not as good as they though they were. Bruce Baker,Kai Nurenberg,Matt Wynn, JO JO johnson could have been the best ever,(but just wasn't mentally prepared.)and so many more good ones ,of the likes we havent seen in the last decade,excluding a few now and then. but there has been no team since Rich herrins teams that could compete with one of his teams

well they had a great team in 92'. What about Fraulini, Raby?.. Them guys? They were decent. Bill Smith, Curtis Smith, Randy House. A recent one, Casey Ainslie, who didnt get the credit he deserved.

I

heard Casey Ainslie had deportment problems with the local police which rendered him inelgible to play his senior year. He was one of the best this last decade

He was in trouble with the police but the least matt wynn could have done was suspend him a few games but he didnt want him on the team at all. He ended up movin to trenton wesclin where he teamed up with sean rakers (best big man in the state in '08) and made it to the sweet 16. matt wynn is an idiot. casey's class had sooo much talent and not a doubt in my mind, if they all stuck together, they could have made it to state. as freshman when they went 23-1 under curt smith they had sayler shurtz, eric reed, michael spencer, casey ainslie, nick hall, gavin nolen, bryson potts, justin gesell plus more. they were all solid players. matt wynn ran 6 out of the 8 guys off because they didnt do track or cross country

Frosh ball and Varsity ball are two very different things.

Casey Ainslie is still an awesome basketball player as he continues his career at SWIC. He is being looked at by a ton of colleges. Matt Wynn was a horrible coach because he couldn't make a decision without Rod Shurtz. Rod Shurtz was so jealous of Casey because he could play circles around both of his boys. Casey left because he was not getting the playing time that he deserved, and it was the best decision he ever made. He comes from a great family and he is a good kid. He will come out on top of all this shit.

Randy "Rambo" House was one of the best players to go through BCHS...he should have gone pro...he was and still is one of the greatest players of the game.

Most of the guys that have been mentioned have not even played college ball. Kai Nurnberger, Matt Wynn, and Randy House proved they had talent. House was the 14th leading scorer in SIU-C history when he played. Most of the guys that have been mentioned couldn't have held a candle to these three guys. They would have ridden the bench.
