UPDATE (11:00 AM)-

** The Duquesne basketball program will be hosting two 4-star prospects today and one of them is local. I’ve confirmed that both Mars 2018 SG Robby Carmody and  Cleveland 2018 SG Dwayne Cohill will be on campus today. Both Carmody and Cohill, who are AAU teammates, are ranked as Top 100 players in the country. I also learned that Carmody will be visiting Pitt and Kevin Stallings next week.

UPDATE (3:52 PM)-

** One of my trusted ” Little Panthers ” passed along this piece of information from Pitt camp:

Sounding like Bricen Garner won’t be redshirting this season. Coach Hill wants him and Damar Hamlin on the field at the same time and he says they’re the two smartest freshman he’s coached. Rashad Wheeler has a little way to go and will probably be redshirting. Also sounds like DiNucci is working down the depth chart. Don’t be surprised to see him #4 this year

UPDATE (5:48 PM)- 

Pat Narduzzi speaks to the media before today’s practice.

UPDATE (6:10 PM)-

** Pitt hoops continues their run of offering scholarships to players from the South. Today per @GTuckerHoops, Kevin Stallings offered a scholarship to power forward Alex Reese from Pelham, Alabama. Reese (6-9, 225) is a 3 or 4 star prospect with offers from Alabama, Arizona State, Cincinnati, Georgia, Auburn, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
