Is Quinn Clinton finally finding his mojo at St Mary’s College, California?
Or it may be more accurate to ask, are the Gaels coaching staff finally giving the classy shooting guard appropriate court time to display his talent?
Clinton got reasonable minutes in St Mary’s 73-50 win against Nicholls State University. The Cantabrian sored 6 points (2/3 3PG) in 17 minutes – in the same game Dan Fotu posted 10 points and 5 rebounds.
In the 82-70 win against Texas Southern Clinton scored 15 points (4/8 3PG), dished 3 assists and snared 4 rebounds, playing 30 minutes. All are career highs at the Gaels which is hardly surprising given he hardly played in his freshman year and redshirted the 2019-20 season.
Hopefully this good form is a sign of things to come.
Kruz Perrott-Hunt made his third start for South Dakota (0-3) tallying 8 points and 4 rebounds in 33 minutes.
Flynn Cameron, a former Junior Tall Black colleague of Perrott-Hunt, transferred from De Paul University in the off-season. He came up with 9 points and rebounds as University of California Riverside proved too good for Denver winning 83-63.
Thomas Webley played 33 minutes in his first outing for University of Hartford and has started all five games for the Hawks.
The freshman is averaging 5.4 points and 4.6 rebounds across his first five collegiate games.

Reihana Maxwell-Topia’s first taste of college basketball was a double-overtime loss. Playing for St Francis, Illinois, the Fighting Saints went down 77-71 to Bellevue University with RM-T scoring 5 points on debut.
The former Rosmini College standout followed that with an enterprising stats line (8 points/5rebounds/1assist/1block/1steal) in a 77-68 victory over East-West University.
