Cooking With The Pirates

The East Carolina Pirates landed themselves a fine spring recruit. New Hampton swingman Mike Cook is headed to Greenville.

Pirates Nab Cook

Mike Cook has been on a scoring binge ever since he arrived at New Hampton this season. The Philadelphia native scored 24 points a game to go with 6 rebounds in his fifth year season at New Hampton.

A superb effort at the War on the Shore last November really put him on the map. Penn State, Dayton, Kent State and Rhode Island moved on him. East Carolina then hosted him on a visit and the rest is history.

"I think he's going to be really good," New Hampton coach Jamie Arsenault said. "I think it's basically a decision he and his dad made after Coach Herrion went up and visited with him. It's a win-win for both guys. He can really help them turn it around."
