Sports in a Minute: Gemmell makes his decision

Newest nor’easter

Greater Lawrence Christmas Tourney MVP Doug Gemmell has decided to continue his basketball career at the University of New England. The 6-4 Central Catholic senior from Windham was named All-MVC this winter.

Rags to riches

T.J. Cline didn’t even make varsity until his senior year at 4,600-student Plano West (Texas) High. Cline, who grew from 5-9 as a freshman to 6-8, averaged 7.7 points and 4.6 rebounds this year as a freshman for Division 1 Niagara. His mother is Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman. She had a much better winning percentage than T.J.’s father, Tim Cline, who played for the Washington Generals.

Fagula vs. Jenness

We had always assumed Londonderry’s John Fagula was the winningest girls basketball coach in New Hampshire history. But Gary Jenness’ former assistant and current Groveton coach Timothy Haskins e-mailed that Jenness has a few more wins at 606. Jenness is still going strong, he guided White Mt. to the Division 3 finals this winter.

Higher calling

Eagle-Tribune first-team All-Decade player Sam Wheeler from Timberlane got hired as UMaine women’s basketball’s director of operations in January when Tracy Guerrette left to pursue a religious vocation in the Catholic church.

incomplete information

The University of Hartford website notes women’s assistant basketball coach Bill Sullivan and his wife, Jen, have two children. It neglects to point out “Jen” is head coach Jennifer Rizzotti.

Fly like the Eagles

Add to the All-Name Team Cinderella Florida Gulf Coast assistant Michael Fly (which coincidentally was my nickname in college), state champion Brighton basketball player Nickerson Success, Colby skier Paige Whistler and UMaine women’s hockey player Chloe Tinkler.

Vandy mainstay

Senior four-year starter Mike Yastrzemski of Andover continues to produce for No. 3 Vanderbilt. He’s batting .282 (24 for 85) with 10 steals, 18 runs, 15 RBI and two homers for the 21-4 Commodores.
