Gill stars for Pinelands
OH, JEREMY GILL is back all right.
Basketball’s best rivalry too.
Orange 3 Pinelands’ star couldn’t have had a better return, scoring ten of game-high 24 points as part of a decisive 20-1 fourth-quarter run, before the champs held on for Thursday’s 68-63 win over Lumber Company Lakers in the Co-operators General Insurance Premier League at the YMCA.
It was his first game back since the Pine’s knockout final against Hilton Barbados Warriors seven weeks ago, with Gill missing all eight first-round games while resting ankle and groin injuries.
But he showed no signs of rust, or pain, especially not down the stretch while valiantly leading Pinelands’ come-from-behind game-winning charge in a rematch of the last two league finals. (JM)
