Devin Kimmick continued his legacy as one of New Egypt’s men’s basketball all-time great shooters in Wednesday’s Warrior Classic final.

His dad is a great part of our program.” I’m a volunteer and I have a gym key.

Kimmick finished with 21 points, including two 3-pointers. He trailed by his 33-24 at half-time and fell further behind in the second half, making New He the only player in Egypt to score in double figures (2-3). Robbinsville (5-1) extended his lead to more than his double digits in the third quarter with his 17-9.
