For the second day in a row, Keith Dambrot has added a player to Duquesne’s roster.
Yesterday it Memphis transfer Craig Randall, today he gets a commitment from a junior college player.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Marko Krivacevic is a 6-foot-9, 205-pound forward from Miami Dade Community College. Krivacevic is originally from Szombathely, Hungary.
Krivacevic will be eligible for Duquesne this coming season.
Tonight, I spoke with Krivacevic’s head coach at Dade Community College Kevin Ledoux about the type of player Duquesne fans will be watching for the next two seasons.
“Duquesne is getting first a fine young man. They’ll be proud to call them their own. He’s a great kid, he wants to learn, he definitely has high work ethic,” said Ledoux.
“He shoots the ball well. For a 6-foot-9 guy he is the the epitome of a stretch forward these days. He can really shoot the ball, he can put it on the floor and he’s a team player.”
Krivacevic visited Pittsburgh over the weekend and decided on Duquesne today. I asked Coach Ledoux what went his decision.
“I spoke with him today at our workouts and he expressed the professionalism of Coach Dambrot and his staff and everyone at Duquesne University,” said Ledoux.
Finally, since he’s coached him for two seasons and knows him as well as anyone, what is the ceiling of Marko Krivacevic?
“The ceiling for him is limitless. It’s hard to find a 6-foot-9 that can shoot it like him and that can put it on the floor, that can move laterally. The sky is the limit for him,” said Ledoux.
Sounds like the Dukes staff just landed a pretty good player.
