Free throws for a friend

Maureen Cahill of Gorham, above, warms up at the free-throw line at the ProFit Workout on Lincoln

Avenue in Scarborough Sunday, March 9. Cahill, a former player and coach at the University of New

England, was joined by many members of the UNE basketball community, including Justin Gilbert, right, a 1996 graduate, for a shoot-a-thon to raise money for Ron McCarthy Jr. In September 2012, McCarthy, who played basketball at UNE from 1990 to 1995, was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, a throat and neck cancer. Bryon Spinney, a former UNE teammate and ProFit owner, said more then $3,000 was raised to help McCarthy, who, after surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, is participating in a trial drug program at Moffitt Cancer
