TSW talked with Coach Riggio this afternoon. He says that nothing has changed. Daryll is waiting to recieve his ACT scores. Scores are normally mailed about four weeks after the test date. He took the test on February 9. So, look for D-1 offers to flow sometime around the second week in March, if he gets a qualifing score. He is still listing NC State, Providence, West Virginia and Seton Hall as his favorites.

Archie Miller and Anthony Grundy will graduate at season's end and the only returnees next year at the guard position are Crawford (PG-Sr), Sherrill (SG-Jr) and swing guard Hodge(PG/SG-So).
The Pack have their eyes on a point guard from Milford Academy in Connecticut. His name is Daryll Hill (6'0" 175) who exploded on the national scene with tremendous play in the Big Time. His play was so good, it set the pens in motion at ESPN and The Sporting News where both did articles on his abilities. The Strutting Wolf caught up with Milford Head Coach Bob Riggio Thursday night to talk about his star point guard.
Riggio stated to TSW, "Daryll can play for anyone at any level. He's that good." Coach also said "we don't keep ongoing stats, but in his latest outing against Army Prep, Hill exploded in a double overtime 97-92 victory for 39 points". Milford finds themselves with a 26-4 overall record at the end of January.
NC State Asst. Coach Mark Phelps was in attendance Monday to evaluate Hill in a game against Redemption Christian Academy. Riggio went on to say that Milford has college recruiters at most of the games watching Hill play.
Daryll has not been offered yet, as most schools are waiting for his recent ACT test scores which Hill took this week. Riggio said, "he is 3 points from qualifying, which is not that far off".
While not eliminating anyone at this time, Hill does have his favorites. Coach Riggio said that the top 3 are NC State, Providence, and West Virginia. He also said that Seton Hall is in the mix.
