Dunn knows the questions aren’t going away, but at this point it doesn’t really bother him anymore.

If there is anything Ed Cooley and Providence can offer a recruit playing the guard position for 2014, it’s playing time. With Bryce Cotton graduating and former McDonalds All-American point guard Kris Dunn likely sidelined at the start of next season rehabbing, Providence needs some backcourt depth.

The time is now for Providence’s Kris Dunn

Send to KindleThe 2013 NBA draft has come and gone and while the draft class notoriously lacked star power, one thing it was not without was some serious intrigue. Between an unforeseen selection at number one in UNLV’s Anthony Bennett, Kentucky’s star Nerlens Noel slipping outside the top five and a blockbuster deal that sent two future Hall of Famers away from the team they...

James Robinson to Greentree Rather Than Prague

It was somewhat surprising to see James Robinson not make the final cut for the USA Basketball U19 squad. After all, Robinson was a member of the gold-medal winning U18 squad from last year. The U19 coaching staff was the same from the U18 squad. Yet Robinson was essentially beaten out for a roster spot by Elfrid Payton of Lousiana-Lafayette. The U19 squad is only bringing four true...

In The Midst of the Big East Muddle

  Hope everyone had a nice MLK/Inauguration Day. I spent mine looking at cars and dealing with various used car salesmen. In my mind I’m pretending that this ordeal is me being recruited by colleges and the car is the scholarship offer. Kind of makes it a little more fun, even if there were points where I kind of forgot that the game was only in my head. There was even a salesman...
