LaDontae Henton was ranked No. 17 in ESPN’s Top 25 Freshmen list today.
17. LaDontae Henton, Providence Friars
Did you seen Henton going to war against Syracuse in PC’s 87-73 loss last week? Someone forgot to tell him that was the No. 1 team in the country he was facing. The box score (11 points, 13 boards) really doesn’t do justice to the fearlessness displayed by a 6-6 freshman in a game where the Friars basically had no business being as competitive as they were. Coach Ed Cooley’s stylistic peculiarity is that players he likes never come out of the game, and if Henton doesn’t drop dead from exhaustion, he’ll make a name for himself.
