2019 Hall Of Fame Nominees


Dustin Dupont Mustangs .jpg

dustin dupont

Dupont’s consistency in UH Minnesota has earned him his second straight nomination for the Hall of Fame. His numbers continue to impress, but it’s his championship pedigree that continues to get him nominated.

When he was nominated last year, he had seven championships to his name. In the time since, he’s won three more championships in two different leagues to put his total up to 10. His Rebels are coming off back-to-back Bloomington South titles and are looking for a three-peat in the spring.

Not only has Dupont had a bunch of success in Minnesota, he’s also brought home a championship at the national level. He won the inaugural National Tournament in 2011 with Saints+ in Chicago. Dupont scored 14 points on 6-9 shooting and added five rebounds, five assists and five steals in the championship game.

His career stats speak for themselves when compared to the rest of the elite in UH. He has the most assists (64 more than Hall of Famer Chase Skinkis) and the most steals (235 more than Hall of Famer Ryan Jansen) in UH history. He’s done this all in 657 games, the fifth-most played in Ultimate Hoops.

Four different nominees out of Minnesota got inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2018. Dupont will look to join that list in 2019 and join longtime Rebels teammate Ryan Jansen in the Hall this summer.

brandon walker

When you think about UH Arizona, Walker is one of the first names that has to be brought up. No one has been as dedicated to the UH Arizona community than Walker, who is closing in on becoming the first player in UH Arizona history to reach 500 games.

He started playing in the summer of 2010, and he’s been racking up milestones ever since. He has averaged 17.7 points per game in the eight-plus years in UH (shooting 46 percent from the field and 40 percent from deep), which gives him over 8,600 career points, more than anyone in Arizona. As far as other statistical categories in Arizona history, he’s near the top. He ranks second in rebounds (currently one rebound behind Tyrone Jones), second in assists and fourth in steals.

His impact in Arizona has been felt both on and off the court, as he’s been a media associate for almost as long as he’s played. His articles, and his on-court personality, have helped add to the entertainment of the leagues he’s been involved in. His impact has also been felt at the national stage, as Walker has played in seven straight Las Vegas National Tournaments, averaging 12.6 points in 24 career games.

UH Arizona has blown up into arguably the most successful region in UH, and that would not have been possible without Walker. He was the only representative from Arizona to get nominated last year. Will he have company from the region this time around?


Vaughn Gray helps JYD.jpg

vaughan gray

Gray is one of the most accomplished players in all of Ultimate Hoops, racking up monster stats and numerous championships in over 600 UH games.

He ranks in the top five in three major statistical categories: points, assists and steals. He is second all time in points scored, just behind fellow UH Detroit legend and UH Hall of Famer Mckinsey Golfin. He’s been able to rack up impressive milestones due to his consistency across multiple leagues. He has career splits of 20.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.0 steals. Those 20.4 points per game comes from shooting splits of 52 percent from the field and 41 percent from deep.

His scoring has translated well on the national stage as well. In 12 National Tournament games, Gray has averaged 15.8 points per game while shooting 61 percent from the field and 58 percent from deep.

Gray’s play has led to 14 championships over his many years playing in UH. Since he was nominated for the Hall of Fame last year, he’s added two championships to his trophy case, winning back-to-back ‘ships in the past two seasons in Shelby, one in the open league and one in the vet league.

Gray was nominated for the Hall of Fame last year alongside fellow Detroit players Mckinsey Golfin and Johnnie Brown; Golfin and Brown were both inducted into the inaugural class. Will Gray be able to make it in this summer the second time around?

MIKE MASTRO

Mastro is often referred as the G.O.A.T of Ultimate Hoops New York, and for good reason. He’s led Unstuck to 12 championships in Syosset and Garden City, ranging from Spring 2011 to Spring 2017. Now that New York has shifted into draft leagues, Mastro has still been able to win titles without some of his regular teammates. He won back-to-back championships in 2018 in Garden City as the captain of Jeurys Familia, giving him 14 total titles.

He has the tenacity to rebound like Dennis Rodman, the skill to score from anywhere on the floor and the vision to get his teammates involved. That all adds up to him averaging 24.3 points, 15.8 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game over the course of his Ultimate Hoops career. What stands out the most about his statistical resume is the 5,107 rebounds he’s grabbed, making him the most prolific rebounder in Ultimate Hoops history. He has 336 more rebounds than Chris Maher, who’s second all time in rebounds, and Mastro has done it in 282 fewer games.

Members of the UH New York community have said that Mastro would be a first-ballot Ultimate Hoops New York Hall of Famer if they were to ever have one. He had a chance to be a first-ballot UH Hall of Famer last year and missed the cut. He started his 2019 campaign by having the highest PPR (46.0) in UH Nation in the winter season. Will Mastro’s second chance as a nominee earn him a spot in the Class of 2019?
