Record-setting night for Dean Gabrelcik
For the past year, Dean Gabrelcik started getting the attention of college coaches for his ability to shoot from long-range.
On Wednesday, the East Lake senior made nearly every shot he attempted.
In the first half against rival Palm Harbor University, Gabrelcik opened eyes by going 11-of-11 on 3-pointers. He had 37 points by halftime and finished with 42 to set the school record for most points in a game.
Better still, Gabrelcik did it while just playing for 17 minutes in a rout.
