    Upon further review @Pete Mitchell did get one from the first 5 that I did not count (it was close with the connection between Hurley Sr. and Hurley Jr. but he will get credit).

    This means @Pete Mitchell and @Rez have 3 correct with @se7ens having two correct of the original 10 I posted. There is one left from the 10 challenges posted. Good luck!

    Great work! This was the toughest of the second 5 posted IMO.

    And there we have it. All 10 have been complete! Great work! Again in less steps than required.

    Final tally: @Pete Mitchell @Rez and @se7ens all finished with 3 correct. Very impressive as you three answered 9 of the 10. Your knowledge of KY High School Basketball is vast gentlemen!

    I will come up with a tie-breaker and check to make sure there is a connection. Good luck!

    Connection Challenge Tie-Breaker:

    This question is for @se7ens @Rez and @Pete Mitchell. First one to answer in the fewest steps wins. If you come up with an answer in 6 steps, but someone can answer it in 5, then the five steps trumps and so on and so forth. Remember fewer steps trumps quick post. If we tie after this it will have to be considered a draw. Again, good luck!

    Final Connection:
    (1) Mason Faulkner (Caverna) to the Gold Medal game in the 1972 Olympics (USSR vs. USA)

    Hopefully this poses more of a challenge!

    Wow! Very good connection. Lets see if @Pete Mitchell or @se7ens can do it in less steps. I have you with 4 steps as Doug Collins was the connection to that game. This will be hard to beat.

    Ha I concede. I would probably find something but not in less steps.
