Chris Smith New Coach at Kolbe

Chris Smith, the all-time leading scorer in UConn men’s basketball history, has been named boys basketball coach at his alma mater, Bridgeport’s Kolbe Cathedral.

Smith graduated from Kolbe in 1988 and was coach Jim Calhoun’s first major in-state recruiting coup. In his four years with the Huskies, Smith scored 2,145 career points, still a school record. Detroit Pistons forward Richard Hamilton is second with 2,036 (in three seasons).

Smith was selected in the second round of the 1992 NBA draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves and played three seasons for the team.

i remember when Chris dunked on David Sullivan from Immaculate High School after leaving the floor from outside the paint. He could play and hopefully the young men at Kolbe will have a good mentor to learn from...

Back in '89, Chris Smith made Nate Morgan, a 5'4 point guard from IHS in Danbury look so bad that he cried in the huddle during a timeout.
