Finamore Checks In With DePaul and MSU News

DePaul Blue Demon head coach Pat Kennedy has told people he is going the juco route. Well he has landed a very fine junior college player in Delonte Holland, 6-7 SF/SG from Vincennes Junior College. Holland visited Illinois, Purdue and Maryland but chose the Blue Demons.

In other recruiting news, I spoke with a high school coach from Ohio today and he has informed me that Robert Siwo, 5-10 point guard from Xenia HS in Xenia, Ohio, was the MVP at Five-Star Pitt II session last week. Well, here is the deal, it turns out that Siwo took an unofficial to Michigan State last week and it seems that the Spartans are very interested in Siwo. From what I was told, Siwo is a very powerful point guard who can blow by his man and finish amongst the trees in the lane. He is great at drawing contact and finishing the play off with an "and-one."

He was so impressive at Five Star that Howard Garfinkel has invited him back for another week, Pitt IV, where all the top players show off their stuff. The most impressive thing about Siwo is that he was at ABCD last summer but declined to go back because he wanted to work on his game and get better, not just play in games.

That tells you a lot about the kid right there!
