Gill Earns WCC Player Of The Week Honors
Pacific senior guard Tony Gill scored a career-high 22 points in the Tigers' last-second win over Nevada on Friday night. The Tigers won 80-78, with Gill scoring over a quarter of the team's points.
Gill scored 12 of his points in the final 11:41 of the game, hitting five clutch shots. His first two shots brought the Tigers back to within two and one, and gave the team a one-point lead (58-57) with a 3-pointer at 8:34. Nevada took another another two-point lead and Tony again hit a 3-pointer to give the Tigers another one-point advantage (74-73).
Gill's final basket was a layup with just under a minute left to give the team yet another lead at 76-75 on the way to the 80-78 win. His last four field goals were lead-taking baskets.
Gill connected on 9-of-12 from the field, including 4-of-5 from beyond the arc to go along with five rebounds.
The Tigers are in action with a home game against UC Irvine 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Alex G. Spanos Center.
