Basketball Previews: Meet Courtney Dunn

This will be an important year for BC basketball. Skinner has to mix his most touted recruiting class with one of his thinnest rosters of returning, productive players. I'll take quick glances at the new and old faces as the season approaches.


Courtney Dunn, F, 6'8

Of the new faces, Dunn comes in with the fewest accolades. He is a late bloomer who still might need more time to round out his game.

Strengths: Good build. Can block shots.

Questions: Can he adjust to this level of play? Does he do any one thing well enough to merit playing time?

Outlook: Early word out of practices is that Dunn might not see the floor this year. With Blair and Oates graduating next season, there will be minutes for him in the future if he matures, works hard and rounds out his game. But you can never count anyone out. Some of the biggest surprises of the past ten years were also afterthoughts who struggled at first.

I'm sure he will see some playing time. A trained monkey (a la Ed) could play better than Johnny Oates.
