NEW YORK -- Malcolm Gilbert didn't score a single point during Sunday's 17-and-under Gold championship game at the Rumble in the Bronx at Fordham University.

But at 6 feet, 11 inches tall, Gilbert was a major factor in helping East Coast Elite down Andre Drummond and the Connecticut Basketball Club, 63-58, for the title.

Gilbert had five blocks on Drummond, the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2012, in the first half and six total blocks in the game. He also finished with 9 rebounds -- 6 offensive, 3 defensive -- before fouling out with 54 seconds remaining.

I just finished up a story for the upcoming issue of Basketball Times on Canadian forward Tristan Thompson and thought I'd mention a few things.

I covered the Texas-bound Thompson during his stint at St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, when he was listed at 6-foot-8, 215 pounds. He's now 6-10, 240 with a game that screams NBA potential. His mother, Andrea, said Tristan's great-grandfather grew to 7 feet.

Thompson just returned Tuesday morning from an 18-hour adventure home from the FIBA U19 World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand. It was 13 hours from Auckland to Los Angeles and another five to his home in Toronto.
