Fred Gibson played 11 minutes in the Albuquerque Thunderbirds' Wednesday night game against the Erie BayHawks. Gibson responded by shooting 2 of 3 from the floor and 1 for 1 from the line. The Thunderbirds won the game by 1.
Gibson has not scored a lot of points, but he is contributing, and has had a pretty good start to 2009. In the first game of the year, he went 6 for 6 from the floor. The next game, he was 3 for 7.
Gibson followed with a game in which he shot just 1 for 5 from the field, so you would think that the coaches would want him to be more consistent. As it stands, however, the Thunderbirds have won 3 games in a row, and Fred is a part of the team's improving record.
