A Familiar Name From A Different Sport

The 247Sports sites lists more than 50 high school juniors purportedly "offered" by Dartmouth:

It's silly to spend much time looking over lists like this because precious few of these kids will end up at Dartmouth. But because he was first on the list I did happen to notice the name of highly regarded quarterback Connor Bazelak, whose offer list is as long as your arm.

That Connor Bazelak happened to be from Kettering, Ohio caught my attention because one of the best 3-point shooters in Dartmouth basketball history happened to be Len Bazelak '88, who grew up in Xenia, Ohio, but now lives in Kettering.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Lenny, by the way, is the only Dartmouth player to shoot better than 45 percent from 3 two times, and holds the school record with 46.6 percent shooting from long range.
