Gill was also named the BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year as well as the Most Improved Player.

Before joining Seton Hall Romaro Gill played for the Vincennes University Trailblazers as his first-ever introduction to organized basketball. In his first season at VU Gill averaged 1.8 points in 13 games. Gill now champions a 62.8 field goal percentage, averaging 7.8 points per game, and leading the BIG EAST in blocks per game for the 19-20 season.

The Sport Excellence award is given to one student-athlete in each BIG EAST sport and is based on academics, athletic performance, and community service.

The Vincennes University Athletic Department hosts Play4Kay and raises donations for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund annually. VU Women’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Harry Meeks has a special connection to the late Yow, who was the longtime coach at North Carolina State. He had the pleasure of meeting her while he was an assistant coach at Western Carolina University. This left a lasting impression on him and made this cause important to him and the Trailblazers.
