LATEST UPDATE: St. Anthony's head coach Bobby Hurley, Sr. has stated he believes his team will be a more forward oriented program next season. With the loss of some high quality division one college bound guards, players like Pankey will be needed to produce points from the frontcourt position for the Friars.

"Until we have them in practice on a full time basis, we won't know how much he or any other new player will contribute."

Hurley was excited that Ashton had been working out in the weight room too when he transferred from Molloy late in the school year.

SCHOOLS OF INTEREST: Pittsburgh, Seton Hall, Florida, Virginia Tech, Fairfield, Stony Brook, St. John's, Rutgers, Syracuse, St. Francis of New York, Penn State, and Hofstra.
