Dennis Horner, and his tatoo, made ESPN’s Top 10 for a blocked shot in an NBA D-League game league. He’s averaging a solid 15 points an 7.7 rebounds a game playing alongside Clemson’s James Mays for the Springfield Armor.
Thank God the Springfield Armor did not have another #31 on their roster!
You may remember that Horner got some nice playing time for the (then) New Jersey Nets last season. He’s clearly one of our most favorite Wolfpackers of the last ten years; and, I would LOVE to have seen him on this year’s Wolfpack roster playing in Coach Gottfried’s high-post offense. You can click here for Horner’s tag from our message forums that followed hi career some last year.
While we are talking about Wolfpackers in the NBA, I heard that Coach Gottfried had Nate McMillan come in and talk to the team yesterday. That is a great move on all fronts; and, it is very nice to hear that the program is finding ways to keep our most valuable and well-liked alums close.
