Basketball: N-G's Kimble headed to Hawk Hill

Neumann Goretti's Lamarr Kimble, a 6-foot senior point guard, committed Friday to play basketball at St. Joseph's.

"St. Joe's did a great job of recruiting him," N-G coach Carl Arrigale said. "They've been on him for a while now. Everywhere Lamarr went, [Hawks coach Phil Martelli] was there. Lamarr paid attention to that."

Kimble, who last season earned first-team all-Catholic League honors while helping lead the Saints to the PIAA Class AAA state championship, also had scholarship offers from Creighton, Drexel, La Salle, and Rhode Island, among others.

Said Arrigale: "He didn't want the process to go on any longer. He knew St. Joe's was where he wanted to be."
