Former Gannon University standout Kyle Goldcamp had 16 points off the bench in leading the Erie BayHawks past the Maine Red Claws, 98-85, Saturday at the Portland Expo. Erie (8-5) is just a half game behind Maine (10-6) in the East Division.

The BayHawks play at Springfield (4-9) today.

On Wednesday, Kyle Goldcamp returned to the Erie BayHawks as a practice player. A 6-foot, 10-inch, 250-pound power forward, Goldcamp has played three seasons with the BayHawks.

The former Gannon University standout averaged 14 points and 8.4 rebounds last season. Erie has to waive a player to add him to the 10-man active roster. The BayHawks (2-4) play Iowa (2-3) Friday at Erie Insurance Arena.

The fifth-seeded Erie BayHawks (28-22) should have their hands full for their best-of-3 D-League playoff series against the third-seeded Austin Toros (33-17) that begins with Thursday’s Game 1 at Tullio Arena.

After Wednesday’s practice, I caught up with Erie coach Jay Larranaga, New York Knicks rookie Jerome Jordan, Kyle Goldcamp and D.J. Kennedy and asked them about this series.

A key matchup will be Jordan against Austin big man Eric Dawson, who is second in the D-League in double-doubles with 23.

Ahearn was key in Erie reaching the 2011 D-League playoffs/ETN file photo.

Blake Ahearn didn’t bite on the invitation.

The Reno Bighorns combo guard was watching his former team play a game against the defending D-League champs, the Iowa Energy, that was postponed due the floor being deemed as unplayable.

Ahearn had to leave Tullio Arena with his fellow Bighorns to rest up for their game against the BayHawks tonight when Erie lead local investor Owen McCormick offered to take him out to dinner.

“I got to get some rest so I can put up 30 on you,” Ahearn said smiling.

McCormick laughed.

“Got to show you how much I love,” Ahearn said while hugging him.

In his two seasons with Erie, Ahearn became a fan favorite for nailing threes, being automatic from the line and playing carefree. The day after the 2011 D-League Draft, the BayHawks traded him to Reno in a four-player deal that resulted in Erie getting Donald Sloan.

“I was shocked,” he said. “It was literally the last phone call I thought I would get, but it is what it is. Everybody knows that professional sports, stuff is a business. I mean, Peyton Manning. Look at that. That’s a perfect example. One of the best quarterbacks of all time. That’s just the nature of our business. It came as a shock and to me, the hardest part was leaving the relationships that you have. That’s the toughest part, but you make new ones in new places you go.”

Tonight at 7, Sloan and Ahearn, whom were teammates for Team USA in the  2011 Pan American Games, will square off at Tullio Arena.

“I’m ready for that game,” said Sloan on Thursday night.

Ahearn, who leads the D-League in scoring at 24.4 points a game, can’t wait either.

With two players injured, the Erie BayHawks used eight in today’s 106-81 win against Maine. Six of them scored in double figures.

Marvin Phillips is the exception to all this.

He was healthy, but didn’t play.


“Ask coach,” Phillips said after the game.

I did.

“Marvin?” Erie coach Larranaga said.

Twelve seconds later.

“I asked Marvin if he wanted to go in and he said no,” Larranaga said. “It was in the fourth quarter and it was about six minutes to go.”

Erie led 102-72 with six minutes left in the game.

Since coming to Erie from Fort Wayne in a trade for a fourth-round pick in the 2012 D-League Draft, Phillips hasn’t played in four games. Word is he wasn’t thrilled with not playing when returning to Fort Wayne for a road game against the Mad Ants on Feb. 16.

So this is nothing new.

The question is with the BayHawks being down a big man with Sharrod Ford (calf), why wouldn’t Phillips get a shot.

Being waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday didn’t stop Mychel Thompson’s pursuit of making the NBA.

Just altered it.

Before returning to the Erie BayHawks for today’s 7 p.m. game against Maine at Tullio Arena, Thompson talked about being back with Erie, what he learned in Cleveland and guarding the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-point shooting — Ray Allen.

How are you feeling about coming back to Erie? “My goal is to get back into the NBA. So I felt this gives me my best opportunity. By coming back, I hope I get another chance.”

(A third-round pick in the 2011 D-League Draft, Thompson averaged 19.8 points in five games with Erie to start the 2011-12 season.)

How was your experience in Cleveland? “It was good. I learned a lot. The last few games, I got to play. It was great being out there. I felt like I finally adjusted well to the game. Got a lot of experience. Was able to start some games. Just hoping for another opportunity like that.”

(Thompson played five games for the Cavaliers. Averaging 3.6 points a game, Thompson started three games for Cleveland. He made the final 15-man roster after the Cavaliers invited him to their training camp.).

McLeod had 22 of his 25 points in the 3rd.

The only person after Erie’s 98-93 win tonight against Sioux Falls at Tullio Arena who didn’t know Keith McLeod had 22 points in the 3rd quarter was, well, Keith McLeod.

“No clue,” McLeod said. “(I) had no clue. I knew I was making shots.”

McLeod’s hot shooting also blinded Kyle Goldcamp to the fact he had 12 points in the quarter himself.

“I honestly didn’t know because Keith was hitting everything,” Goldcamp said. “It was like, I’m going to keep trying to set screens and figure out a way for him to get open because when you have a hot hand like that, you got to keep feeding the man. That’s great. It was awesome. A great time being out there. It was a good run, but I was unaware.”

The two combined to score 34 of Erie’s 36 points in the third as the BayHawks built an 82-68 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Erie outscored Sioux Falls by 15 points in the quarter.

Kyle Goldcamp

Kyle Goldcamp stays with it. He does not back down.

“You know me by now,” he said with a wide grin. “I’m going to put my nose in the middle of everything.”

For players like Sean Williams, Goldcamp is a handful.

See, Williams has talent. Hops. Some skill. Can shoot for a big fella.

He’s certainly more talented than Goldcamp.

The Texas Legends power forward put up the kind of numbers someone from the NBA should  Friday night – game-high 29 points, three blocks. The Dallas Mavericks sent Williams down to the Legends.

However, his team blew a 20-point lead and lost, 118-115, to the Erie BayHawks at Tullio Arena and he wasn’t in the game when it mattered.


Because Goldcamp outworked him.

“I’ve gone against tough guys,” Goldcamp said. “He’s another tough one.”
