Former University of New Haven star Eric Anderson, ex-Yale stud Brandon Sherrod lead team to convincing ‘W’ in Greater Hartford Pro-Am

(WTNH)–The Greater Hartford Pro-Am basketball league is in its second week of action, with some big names slipping into the gym. Former Yale star Brandon Sherrod and University of New Haven product Eric Anderson were on the floor on Wednesday night, leading their squad against a team led by New Haven legend Bobby Moore.

Quinnipiac’s Aaron Robinson was also showing out for his side. He was on fire from three-point range and scored buckets from all over the court. He finished with 32. The Bobcats have a good one in this kid, who plays alongside his twin Andrew at QU.

Robinson Brothers Get Workout In Greater Hartford Pro-Am

As Aaron and Andrew Robinson await the start of their junior year at Quinnipiac, the basketball-loving brothers are eager to take advantage of the diverse competition offered by the Greater Hartford Pro-Am.

"We've faced great players at Quinnipiac, and now we can come here to play against professionals and college players," Aaron said. "Having good games against good competition helps my confidence."

Beyond experiencing competition, playing in the talent-rich league has also allowed the Robinson brothers to stay in shape in the offseason.

"A lot of college players may be working out in the summer, but you can't duplicate the experience of being in a game," Andrew said. "Running up and down the court constantly, that's key for next season [at Quinnipiac]."

Both brothers play for Attorney Deron Freeman, which defeated Pauly Chute Slamm 120-109 Wednesday night at the Sport and Medical Sciences Academy. Aaron was his team's leading scorer, with 32 points.

"I was trying to be aggressive, I played for Pauly Chute last year and it didn't go too well for me," he said. "I wanted to prove I could play, so I had a little extra motivation, and I've been shooting better the last couple games."

The win was the fourth in a row for Attorney Deron Freeman (4-1), and Andrew Robinson said the team is hitting its stride after struggling with chemistry in a season-opening loss. A roster of six took the court Wednesday, but the lack of depth hasn't hurt the squad.

"It's fun, I don't mind because I like to play," Andrew said. "We've got a lot of good players so we make it work."

Frito Lay Holds Off Red Squad In Pro-Am

About 24 hours after Frito Lay staged a wild comeback to win its first game in the Greater Hartford Pro-Am, Robert "Fluff" McKiver and his teammates needed to survive a similar rally Sunday by Zach Fam. Red Squad for a 124-122 victory.

"We've had two different monsters," McKiver said. "We found out that we're a good comeback team and we found out that any lead is not safe. I think this weekend we proved that we're going to be in the running to win this thing."

After leading by 25 in the second quarter and by 16 after the third, McKiver's team watched as a two-pointer from Danny Lawhorn bounced off the rim as time expired to end the game. Lawhorn, who finished with 52 points, had a look at a three-pointer, but drove the baseline and put his ball off the iron in hopes of sending the game to overtime.

"I think [Lawson] was surprised how much we ran him off the line," McKiver said. "We wanted to run him off the line and then try and make him make a tough play. He was hot, so I thought he was going to take a three but we got lucky he didn't."

The Red Squad, who lost their opener on Friday, came storming back in the fourth quarter as Lawson found his rhythm, making fast break layups and contested jumpers from outside the three-point arc. Frito Lay did its best to slow the rally, getting important baskets from E.J. Crawford. But every time it appeared the comeback was done, Red Squad got another hoop from Lawhorn.

Raiquan Clark Stars In Debut Of Greater Hartford Pro-Am

Raiquan Clark wanted to make a good impression in his first game in the Greater Hartford Pro-Am Basketball League Friday night.

Clark, a Hillhouse High graduate who will be a junior at LIU Brooklyn in the fall, was impressive in his debut, scoring 26 points and had six rebounds for the Atty. Deron Freeman team in a 119-84 victory over Zach Fam Red Squad at SMSA.

Tobin Carberry had 34 points to lead Atty. Deron Freeman and Ryen Vilmont added 16. Mickell Gladness led Zach Fam Red Squad with 20 points and 14 rebounds, while Obi Momah had 16 points and 15 rebounds.

"I always heard about [the league] growing up, so for me to play in it today and to play as well as I played, it's a good feeling," said Clark, a 6 foot 5 inch guard/forward. "I just wanted to come out and play hard. That's how I always start a game, just coming out and playing hard and that's what I did tonight."

In the second game, Cricket Wireless beat Harte Nissan 118-114 in overtime. Doug Heiring had 35 points and Kevin Briggs had a triple-double (12 points, 10 blocks, 10 rebounds).
