Hoop Dreams: Saint-versus-Saint Hoop Action




So, as I am watching tonight's game, I find myself wondering: Who would win in some one-on-one hoop action, Aloysius Gonzaga or Francis Xavier?

Gonzaga, because, obviously, his hands are higher, showing his hoop shooting abilities to be that much greater.

Gonzaga would have had the talent, but Xavier had the grit and toughness to win.

St. Peter Claver (http://www.geocities.com/francischinchoy/sjpeterclaver.html) would have taken both of them.

With that gimpy leg, St. Ignatius would struggle.

Gonzaga. In the icon, his hands are raised in the "goal" position. Clearly, he was made for hoops.

I say Gonzaga, not only are his hands better positioned, they are also both free.
