** We wanted to let you know about a big “milestone” at PSN and thank you for it. We’re real excited to say that we’ve recorded our highest days of back to back pageviews in the history of the site. Hopefully this is a sign that you’re enjoying what we’re producing. Thank you.
** Reminder for you to join us this Saturday at Cupka’s 2 on the South Side to watch Pitt take on Oklahoma State. Members of the Pittsburgh Sports Now staff will be on hand to talk Pitt and drink beer!
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
And speaking of beers, our friends at Voodoo Brewery have a special H2P beer, which they will be bringing a keg of to the party. Plus, we’ll be giving away prizes including a Pitt cornhole Board.
All are welcome, but if you plan on coming, we ask that you sign up on our Facebook event page so that we have at least an idea of who’s going to be there.
We look forward to meeting you in real life.
UPDATE (8:27 AM)-
** This weekend, the Duquesne basketball team will be hosting another highly rated guard from Florida. Darius Banks is a shooting guard from St. Petersburg (FL), will make an official visit this weekend. According to two scouting services, Banks is rated as a 4-star recruit and holds offers from Kansas State, Central Florida, George Mason, South Florida, Florida Gulf Coast and Wyoming.
Banks (6-5, 210) is a strong, physical wing prospect pith big-time athleticism. Many believe that he’s a player that could come into Duquesne and play right away. Keep your eye on him this weekend because he’d be a big get for Jim Ferry and his staff.
UPDATE (9:27 AM)-
** Congrats to Steel Valley’s DeWayne Murray who was selected to play in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl. The game is played at Everbank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars and will take place on January 14 at 1 PM on ESPN.
** Another note on Duquesne recruits, the Dukes will have an assistant today at Blair Academy to watch talented 2017 guard Anthony Mack, who’s already made an unofficial visit to Duquesne, is a player that’s high on the Dukes recruiting board.
