Bob Gibbons TOC Notes - Saturday AM Action

The 2007 Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions continued on Saturday. Team Final suffered two close losses and will be heading back to Philly with a disappointing 1-2 record. Weak rebounding, defensive lapses and lack of consistent execution on offense did them in. Game three for Team Final was a match-up with the DC Assault 16s (featuring Wallace "Wally" Judge is a Class of 2009 Forward prospect that Villanova has been tracking).

Class of 2009:

Andre "Scooter" Gillette, 6'8", Forward, Philadelphia, PA, Neumann Goretti

He matched up quite a bit head-to-head with Wallace Judge in this contest and Judge got the better of him. Scooter grabbed three boards and posted 6 points. All 6 points came on lay-ups. One finish was an impressive catch of a difficult pass which he quickly kissed in off the glass. Gillette shot 3-5 from the floor in his afternoon game. In the morning game, he scored 3 points - a nice lay-up after sealing his man and 1-4 from the FT line. He had 3 boards and a blocked shot as well. Gillette shot 1-5 from the floor in his morning game. His performance this weekend was not up to par in comparison with his recent performances.
