Under the Lights: Knights' Lumb has impressive debut

more morgan magic

After missing the first two games with a hand injury, Hartford freshman Morgan Lumb of North Andover opened eyes with a team-leading 11 points (4-8 shooting), 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks in a 79-53 loss to Providence.

on the fast track

Another former Hartford Hawk hoopster, Jennifer Chuks, is carving out quite a career for herself. The former Central Catholic star (CCHS ‘02) is the assistant A.D. at prestigious Williams College.

6-7 mom and daughter

BYU’s 6-7 senior Jennifer Hamson is quite the athlete. In an OT win over BC, she had 28 points, 12 rebounds and 7 blocks. This fall she was second-team All-American in volleyball. Her mother, 6-7 Tresa Spaulding Hamson, was a BYU hoop All-American.

Pillar to post

Coley Viselli, a three-team Eagle-Tribune All-Star basketball player at Pentucket, has signed a letter of intent with Post University, a Division 2 school in Waterbury, Conn. Viselli, whose sister Ashley is a senior guard at St. Anselm, is doing a post-grad year at Marianapolis Prep in Connecticut.

Good night nurse

Canadian Kia Nurse, who is being wooed by the UConn women’s basketball program, has all sorts of athletes in the family. That includes her sister Tamika (ex-Bowling Green hoop star), her brother Darnell (Edmonton Oilers’ first-round pick), her father Richard (Canadian Football League), her cousin Sarah (Wisconsin hockey) and her uncle by marriage ex-NFL star Donovan McNabb.

Cakes are baking

UTL birthday wishes go out to ex-Red Sox catcher Mike Ryan of Haverhill (72 tomorrow), Ex-NFL QB Brian St. Pierre of Georgetown (turns 34 Thursday), ex-NFL player Kevin Hunt of Londonderry (turns 65 Friday), Paul Thompson of Derry and the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins (turns 25 Saturday) and Merrimack lacrosse player Scott Corcoran of Haverhill (turns 20 Saturday).

jump off a cliff

Cliff Alexander, a 6-8 forward from Chicago’s Curie High, is the No. 3 ranked player in the country. At his signing ceremony, he faked picking up the Illinois hat in front of him and then grabbed the Kansas hat.
