Dill's fit and raring to go in Buffalo

Terrence Dill watched from the sidelines on Saturday evening as his Buffalo Stampede got their season off to a winning start, beating Hudson Valley Kingz 132-114 at home in the newly formed Atlantic Coast Professional Basketball League (ACPBL).Dill wasn't able to suit up for the Stampede as he is still waiting for the paperwork that clears him to play to be finalised, but he was on the bench to help cheer his side to the win.Forward Marcus Hall scored 27 points and had seven rebounds to lead the Stampede, while guard Charles Walker had 23 points and four rebounds in the win.Dill, who expects to suit up for this weekend's home game against Garden State, was pleased with the win and how the team looks even though he is yet to be involved.“I didn't get a chance to play due to my paperwork not being completed but I'm expecting to be out on the court with the guys this weekend,” said Dill. ““I was on the bench as an active player but didn't suit up.“The game was good and it looks like we will have a good season, although it is too early to say exactly what will happen.”With the game being the first of the season, Dill expected his side to come out and have a little bit of ring rust. This was far from the truth, as the Stampede poured in 40 points in the first quarter to set the tempo for the rest of the game.The 24-year-old will now focus his sights on Garden State this weekend, where he is expecting to make his debut at home.“The game was actually more then I expected, I thought it would be a close game where we would have to shake off some rust. We went out and played like a top NBA team and never allowed them to get into any rhythm.“We had 40 points in the first quarter and never looked back, so it was a good win and I'll definitely be in this weekend.”
