UNSTOPPABLE: Derick Grant of Koehler and Company, right, races past Nick Wilson of Mercedes Benz of Princeton last week in the championship series of the Princeton Recreation Department Men's Summer Basketball League. Grant produced some of the best play in league history as he led Koehler to a 2-1 in the series. Grant, a former star guard at Montgomery High and The College of New Jersey, averaged 36.7 points a game in the final series, pouring in a league-record 54 in Koehler's 80-79 quadruple overtime win in Game Two. Grant fired in 33 points in the third and decisive game last Sunday to lead Koehler to a 75-61 win and the title.
