There's plenty of video evidence of John Thompson III coaching basketball, but hardly any out there of Thompson playing basketball.
A pair of recent uploads to YouTube show JTIII scoring and getting fouled, part of a quartet of layups I'm posting today. Above's clip is from Princeton's 62-49 win over Lafayette in January of 1986.
Also on the floor: Alan Williams (#24), Joe Scott (#4) and Bob Scrabis (#34).
Three more clips after the jump. I believe they're all from the same game.
Thompson again. Mike Harnum (#30) and Aaron Belz (#43) join Williams and Scott on the floor during the first half, which was the Tigers' starting five.
Williams (12-15 shooting) scored a career high 27 on the night.
Aaron Belz down the left baseline to the rim.
Dave Orlandini (#21) to Williams for two in traffic.
