The featured article on Kris Dunn from his cover appearance on ESPN HS Magazine is now online.
ESPN HS: Dunn hungry for another championship
“I try to play people,” he says, “but I like to joke around so people don’t really take me serious.”
That’s never a problem on the court, where Dunn is a factor in every aspect of the game.
He may be asked to do even more this season. While New London returns most of its key players, the Whalers will be without Torin Childs-Harris, an All-State wing now doing a prep year at St. Thomas More.
If anyone is up to the task, it’s Dunn. While he can take it to the rack with ease, defenders have to play him close because of his improved outside shot. If they double-team him or use a box-and-one, he’s more than capable of getting his teammates involved, as his career average of more than five assists per game demonstrates. With his bounce, Dunn can outrebound most forwards, and with his quickness he’s always a threat on the break.
