Potter hit one of the biggest shots in Crusader history, as his buzzer-beater against Providence in the 1977 ECAC championship game gave Holy Cross its first NCAA Tournament berth since 1956. A three-time fi rst team All-East selection, Potter was a fifth round draft pick of the Atlanta Hawks in 1978. The 1977-1978 co-captain ranks fourth at Holy Cross with his 470 career assists, and was selected as Crusader of the Year in his senior season, when he served as team captain.  Each of his four seasons, the Crusaders won 20 or more games.
