Basketball is in their blood.
Northeast Conference alumni Gary Wallace (Robert Morris) and Latif Rivers (Wagner) both enjoyed successful collegiate careers on the hardwood, and, even a few years after graduation, they aren’t ready to walk away from the game.
In fact, both men are embarking upon new challenges.
Wallace, a North Jersey product who played his high school ball at Seton Hall Prep before a fruitful career in Moon Township, is set for his first season as a head coach. The former NEC champion has taken the reins at Montclair High School.
Meanwhile, Rivers, who played at Elizabeth High School before eventually landing at Wagner where he scored 1,513 career points, has won a roster spot for the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters.
