Quinnipiac Scores A Pair

Tom Moore's Quinnipiac program scored a pair of commitments this weekend. One of them was former Memphis standout DeAndre Bynum, a 6-foot-5 senior.

The crew from Quinnipiac struck twice this weekend. DeAndre Bynum, a wing, and Harold Washington, a combo guard, both committed to Tom Moore's program from the Class of 2008.

Bynum, a former Memphis (Tenn.) White Station standout, transferred to Camp Hills (Md.) Progressive Christian this season. Washington, who will play in the Capital Classic all-star game, averaged 19 points a game at Gwynn Park High School.

Hampton offered Washington and George Mason was said to be taking a peek. Regardless, Moore's program appealed the most to Washington.

"It's a beautiful facility," Washington said. "I loved the coach's plan for the program. It's a program that is going somewhere. It seems like the school is putting a lot of money into the basketball program and the coaches are looking for players to build the program."

Washington knew of Bynum before the pair verballed but it's been a while since he's seen him play. "I saw him on the AAU circuit but other than that I don't really know him. He told me that he felt the same way I did about the school."
