THE GRIND is a weekly series presented by Scott's Auto Center. A week after Pinecrest Academy boys’ basketball lost in the Region 8-A tournament, putting a period mark on an educational 2013-14 season, point guard Nick Palmer took inventory of everything he learned about himself as a player. He learned he was a capable scorer, passer and defender as he led the Paladins in points (15.2), assists (4.3) and steals (2.0) per game.
