Attorney Jeff Hill To Be Inducted Into The New England Basketball Hall of Fame
Baltic, CT resident and former Harvard University and Montville High School star, Jeff Hill, has been named to the Class of 2013 New England Basketball Hall of Fame. On Saturday, June 22, Hill will join other esteemed honorees representing a variety of categories including coaches, players, teams and special contributors at a major ceremony at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Hill was the Captain and a multi-year starter at Division I Harvard University, and also earned Most-Valuable Player and Ivy honors during his career. He played for the legendary Tom “Satch” Sanders who was later involved with the Boston Celtics. While at Montville High School, Hill was also a two-time All-State selection. His daughter, Jamie, is following in his footsteps; she also plays at Montville High School and was recently selected to the Connecticut High School Scholastic Basketball (CHSSBA) All-State Team.
The June 22 event will include a series of afternoon panel discussions featuring a number of former NBA and WNBA players who will be inducted that evening, as well as famed coaches such as John Calipari of Kentucky, former UMass coach. Renowned novelist, Harlan Coben, who was an outstanding player at Amherst, will be among the inductees and will serve as an afternoon panelist.
The event, as much reunion as ceremony, has become one of the largest sports dinners in America. At the last induction ceremony, the event welcomed over 1,600 people and was a sellout.
