Providence Offers 2017 Putnam Science Academy (CT) Guard

Hamidou Diallo is a recent transfer to Putnam Science Academy after playing last season in NYC. Diallo reclassified from 2016 to 2017 after making the transfer this summer.

Kris Dunn, Jalen Lindsey Could Miss Yale and Kentucky Games

During his radio show last night hosted by John Rooke at Whiskey Republic in Providence, Ed Cooley indicated that both redshirt sophomore Kris Dunn and freshman Jalen Lindsey were on crutches Monday following ankle injuries suffered during the team’s win over Notre Dame on Sunday at Mohegan Sun. Cooley also told the listeners that Dunn and Lindsey would have MRI’s and X-Rays done Tuesday morning to see the extent of the injuries.

Cooley had media availability Tuesday afternoon prior to the team’s practice and he gave an update on each player and the news is not good. The Providence Journal’s Kevin McNamara is reporting that Cooley indicated each player’s injury is severe enough that they both may miss the next two games which are at home against Yale Friday and at Rupp Arena against Kentucky Sunday.
