This Just In: Danny Jennings Is A Monster

New, 3 comments

Now that's the way you make a college debut.

In just 16 minutes, Danny Jennings put up 9 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 blocks.  He played like a man possessed.  Quite a few of those points came via the slam dunk of the most authoritative persuasion.

Of course, this was against talent a few steps below Big East level, but for a freshman seeing his first official action in a college uniform, Jennings was the player of the game.  Strong words, considering Da'Sean Butler put up 26 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists.  But it was Jennings who stole the show, becoming much more than the #23 rated center in America as Tony Caridi mentioned in the broadcast.

Jennings is the true inside presence that we've been looking for a long, long time (probably since the departure of D'Or Fisher, and even was more of the jump-shooting type).  Sure, there will be slip-ups and down games, as any freshman is prone to -- but Jennings is the man.  The. Man.
