Hero of the Game: Curtis Kelly

Couldn't make the Greater Hartford Pro-Am championship game Thursday night, but apparently I missed a good one as Recycle King Naughty Boyz came back for a 139-137 win over Harte Nissan to claim the title.

Jerome Dyson poured in 55 points to go with 12 rebounds to lead the way, while SMU-bound Danny Lawhorn added 32 and Doug Wiggins tossed in 22.

But here's the most interesting thing from the email I got from the league: Curtis Kelly had eight points and was named "Hero of the Game." Apparently, he hit the game-winning shot with about two seconds left. Good to hear that Kelly's back in the area.

To this point, he's best known around these parts as the guy who transferred out of UConn after failing to live up to his potential. And at the GHPA, his previous claim to fame was getting posterized by a dunk by Waterbury's Kelvin Davis a few years ago.
