cbs_sports_logoWhile Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports is always quick to make digs at Providence College basketball (especially regarding Ricardo Ledo), he recognized all that is great with ICE COTTON today in his Top 50 shooters in the nation list.

BRYCE COTTON
6-1 | 165 | SG | JR | PROVIDENCE

Can really make shots from long distance as he showed last season with the Friars. Was 77-of-203 for 38 percent from beyond the arc and also made 89 percent of his shots from the charity stripe.

Nobody made more threes in BIG EAST play last year than Bryce Cotton (although St. John’s guard D’Angelo Harrison tied him with 49 makes), and he will certainly continue to draw a lot of attention from opposing defenses looking to neutralize his strengths. Cotton is going to have to work hard to improve on these great numbers this year, especially since he will potentially spend a little time at the point when the roster is the “Iron 7″ in OOC play.
