Former University of Georgia star and NBA vet Damien Wilkins poured in 37 points to lead Guayama past Fajardo 85-105 in the Puerto Rico BSN league.
The 6-6, 225-pound shooting guard — the nephew of NBA great Dominique Wilkins and son of former Knick Gerald Wilkins – sank 3 threes while shooting a red-hot 75 percent (9-of-12) from two-point range and 60 percent from behind the arc.
Wilkins also had 6 assists and 4 rebounds, while shooting 10-of-11 from the line.
Kyle Vinales (Cent. Conn. St.) added 28 points with 8 assists for Guayama in the win.
For Fajardo, Nathan Peavy (Miami, OH) scored 16 points, Damion James (Texas) had 13 points with 8 rebounds, while Carlos Arroyo (FIU) added 10 points and 7 assists in the loss.
But the star of the game was Wilkins, who is the BSN league’s second leading scorer and is third in steals this season, averaging 20.8 points, 4.2 assists, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.6 steals for Fajardo.
A college star at Georgia, Wilkins was second in scoring and rebounding as a senior in 2003-04, averaging 12.6 points and 5.4 rebounds.
Wilkins was a transfer from NC State, where he averaged 11.7 points and 5.8 rebounds as a sophomore before joining the Bulldogs.
Undrafted, he has averaged 6.3 points and 2.4 rebounds in NBA seasons with the Sonics, Thunder, Wolves, Hawks, Pistons, and Sixers.
