It’s been quite a busy day for Duquesne basketball news.
After three players decided to transfer this morning, the Dukes have picked up commitments from two high school seniors.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
2019 guard Ashton Miller and 2019 point guard Evan Buckley have given commitments to Keith Dambrot and the Dukes.
Miller (6’5″, 175) is from Seton Hall Prep in New Jersey and Buckley (6’0″, 175) is from Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn, Virginia and held other offers from Bucknell, NJIT, George Mason, Delaware, James Madison and Vermont.
This past season, Miller averaged 20.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.7 steals per game. Miller finished his high school career scoring 1,220 points, which ranked him 10th all-time in school history.
Buckley is a throwback point guard who looks first to pass and get his teammates involved, plays in your face defense but also has the ability to score.
With the transfer of Brandon Wade, Buckley gives Dambrot someone that can backup and appears to be a great compliment to starter Sincere Carry. Miller has the length and skillset that will allow him to play either the two or three spot.
Buckley and Miller join Kennedy Catholic guard Maceo Austin in Duquesne’s Class of 2019.
Look for Duquesne to add size to their front court and also we’re hearing that another player has decided to transfer. That should be made public in the near future.
