Romaro Gill makes his NZ NBL debut

Normal service has resumed, it seems, as the Wellington Saints returned to the New Zealand NBL in style on opening night.

Having been one of three teams to opt out of last year’s Covid-19 induced Showdown competition, the perennial heavyweights were back to business in fine fashion on Saturday, downing the Otago Nuggets 95-73.

Romaro Gill, all 7′ 3″ of him, made his presence felt in the third quarter, putting on two big plays in quick succession, with a slam then a huge block at the other end.

Gill made the starting five for his first game and managed to play 22 minutes, ending with 6 points, 6 rebs, an assist, steal and block.
