Kris Dunn and New London played for the 2nd night in a row, this time a tough road contest against Hillhouse. This game was a nice test according to @Jvj88 on Twitter, who tweeted me last night:
@friarblog yea will be a sign of toughness , if you can win at hillhouse you can whin anywhere in ct, #homecourtadvantage
@friarblog to be honest no one, but the crowd will be very rowdy, and tough depth will be the true test. Freddie Wilson is be pg from lstr
However, it sounds like Dunn couldn’t dominate like he did scoring 46 the night before, and his team lost for the first time since early last season. Triple teams will do that.

Yes Kris Dunn scored 26 at Doc Hurley Field House in Hartford. But he didn’t dominate. He had to work hard for every point. Hillhouse did a fine job of pressuring him with double teams and some times triple teams. He was adept at passing to open teammates, but often they missed shots.
Dunn also secured SEVENTEEN rebounds on top of his 26 points (half which came from the line, per @GavinKeefe of the TheDay).
