So it was the Senior Day and last game of the season/college career for Joseph Lin at Hamilton College in Pennsylvania
Despite recuperating from his injury, his coach still symbolically started and played him for 55 seconds to score a layup before DNP him for the rest of the game.
Jeremy Lin who is on break from the All-Star weekend, visited his younger brother to watch him play.
The game had a unique start to it as Joseph Lin ’15 — Hamilton’s other senior — took to the court with crutches and a brace on one of his legs. Lin, who is in the top 10 in Division III in assists per game and leads the Continentals in scoring with 14.0 points per game, was injured in a NESCAC game at Bates College last Saturday.
Hamilton was allowed to win the opening tip and the ball ended up in Donnelly’s hands. Donnelly passed to Kazickas, who handed it to Lin and Lin was allowed to make an uncontested layup for the first basket of the game.
