I say it's a toss up between Brendan Smith and Tommy Nels! Mark Slattery was'nt too bad either! Who do you think?

On defence, Bill Ragosa..A animal on the boards..He ruled in the paint..When he stuck his finger in the face of one of the Ryan bros from Saranac on a way to beating them in a upset...it was awesome..Loudest game ever in Moriah

That's Ragoza, and he played defense! Tommy Nels and Paul Slattery played with him that night! They won 69 to 60, and I think Paul had 22 points, if I'm not mistaken! Ragoza only played his senior year! Sherm Chappell found him playing intramurals in school! He said, hey Billy, how would you like to play basketball for me? The rest is history! Somehow, I don't think he was the best ever from Moriah though! I think Tom Gebo was a little better! What do you think?

Excellent choice! He had all the moves,no doubt! He had a poor attitude though! He needed some guidance! Good ball player though! Anybody else?

Figures this topic would start out interesting then turn into a joke, the last couple of players mentioned couldnt dribble milk down there chin,with that being said Gregory Duncan could drop 40 points on any team in the league and made it look easy,the kid could care less if he was even playing,I guess that was his downfall.

Are you kidding me? Neither one were close! You have Al Beebe, Jimmy McClean, Jimmy Lahtinen, Johnny Lahtinen, Johnny Hanchett, Mike Fernandez( he was best shooter), And none of them were as good as Anne Slattery. That's right, I said Anne Slattery! That girl could play, and coach too! She holds the scoring record at Moriah, and that was before the three pointer too! We did say best player, did'nt we?

I know randy salerno scored over 1100 points and was hurt his junior year and missed half the season. Sprague wasn't much of a scorer but aggressive ballplayer and great rebounder. Are you judging this on points scored ? or great players ? I'd have to say randy is in the top 5 best scorers in mcs history.

One more thing. Moriah had some great ballplayers and it's hard to pin point the best. Great atheletes i must say. I'm proud to have watched all these great players named above.

I would say you could say Brendan smith, Mike Fernadez,Nate Slattery and Matt Brassard from the 02-03 team that went to the state championship team was the best team moriah ever had. I don't think you could find a team in the past that could beat them head to head, they could shoot,pass,run the floor and score inside and could drop 70+ points night in night out you don't see many if any highschool teams avg that anymore. Best player who knows there are so many to pick from. Jed Sprague was prolly the best big man moriah has ever seen. Brendan Smith was the best point guard ever, and Fernadez was the best shooter but wouldn't say best player he was a shooter didn't play D very well.

you weren't around in the 60's 70's 80's teams that would mop that team up and send them back to their mothers.

I agree with you brain! Mark slattery, Jimmy McClean, Eddy Goralczyk,Billy Java,Jimmy Lahtinen,Al Beebe, they went 17 and 1 in the league! They won the league Championship, and got beat by NAC 73 to72 in the sectionals! They were one of the best teams ever, if not the best at Moriah! The next years team was just as good, with all those juniors coming up! Randy never scored 1100 points! there are only two people that have over a thousand, that's Mike Fernandez and Anne Slattery! Anne did it before the three point shot too! I beleive she has over 1300 points in her career! Hell of a ball player! Jed Sprague falls in the same category with Haydon Whalen! Loosers to Crown Point!!!!

that is really funny you say mark slattery, I can remember clear as day the 02-03 team. He made the statement at the state championship game that this was the best Moriah team ever. Also many others also made the same statement during that year. But I agree that the team of Mark Slattery and them were very good but when a player from that team makes that statement its hard to say the 02-03 team was not one of the best
