Kimble, who knows SCC Coach Greg Turcott, is in Shoreline this week working with the SCC players and coaches to help the Dolphins learn the fast-break system. Kimble in 1990 led the nation in scoring with a 35 points per game average. Kimble signed with the University of Southern California as a freshman but transferred to Loyola Marymount to play for Westhead. His NBA career was cut short with injuries, but played for the LA Clippers and a short time with the New York Nicks. He was the #8 pick in the 1990 NBA draft.
