NBA Crossover Grid for Day 40

Allen Iverson is likely the most popular answer for Cell 7. He played for the Georgetown Hoyas in college and starred for the Philadelphia 76ers. Current Sixers backup big man Paul Reed should be a great answer. He was with DePaul in college.

Another basketball legend that was a Hoya great was Dikembe Mutombo. “Deke” was a four-time Defensive Player of the Year winner who played for the 76ers for two seasons. Mutombo’s battles against Shaquille O’Neal in the 2001 finals were a delight to fans.

Jimmy Butler is the name most fans will probably associate with the Big East Conference and the Miami Heat. Max Strus (DePaul) and Omer Yurtseven (Georgetown) are options as well for Cell 8.

Alonzo Mourning, yet another Georgetown alum, was a big part of the Miami Heat’s 2006 championship. “Zo” was a four-year player with the Hoyas, three of which were with Mutombo. He was also Shaq’s best backup during the said Miami title run.

For Cell 9, Kemba Walker, who played for UConn in the Big East, was picked ninth by the Charlotte Hornets in 2011. Mikal Bridges (Villanova), who was drafted 10th by the Philadelphia 76ers but traded to the Phoenix Suns is also a good answer.

Greg Monroe, picked seventh by the Detroit Pistons in 2010, continues the Hoya theme on this list. He played two seasons in Georgetown before entering the NBA
