Two from Eastern are NE Hall of Famers

vic_switch_72dpi_2294.jpgTwo Eastern Connecticut State University basketball alumni were inducted into New England Basketball Hall of Fame Saturday, June 22 at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. At right in photo at left, Victor Pereira displays his Hall of Fame certificate along with his former head coach, Dr. Dan Switchenko. A point guard, Pereira was a four-year starter under Switchenko from 1984 through 1988, leading the Warriors to two ECAC tournaments and earning ECAC All-New England honors as a senior and All-Little East Conference honors twice. Pereira, who remains the program's all-time leader in assists, will be inducted into the Eastern E-Club Hall of Fame Oct. 19. He will be presented for induction by Switchenko, the program's winningest head coach and a 2002 inductee. As a senior at Durfee High School in 1984, Pereira was the starting point guard on a team which went undefeated en route to the Massachusetts large school state championship. Pereira currently serves as director of athletics at Durfee HS. Additionally inducted into the New England Hall of Fame but unable to attend the ceremonies was Rich Vega. Also a four-year starter at guard, Vega (1998-02) was a two-time All-ECAC selection and three-time first-team All-LEC pick under former head coach Barry Davis, and graduated as the program's all-time leading scorer with 1,593 points. That point total currently ranks second all-time at Eastern.
