Everhart's Heart at Duquesne

by Face

Rest your weary heads; as reported on our message board via Jeff Goodman's tweet and then many other places, Ron Everhart is staying with Duquesne. Here's a nice quote from Dave Mackall's article in the Trib:

"We've got a great bunch of guys, a close-knit unit," Everhart said. "I'm excited to continue on with the task of taking Duquesne to another level. I never wanted to leave here. We've still got a lot of work to do."

I think we can agree with his sentiment. Much work to be done. Certainly many sighs of relief were breathed when we recruited a few 6'6"+ players recently, so we will have some options in addition to redshirt freshman Martin as well as Andre Marhold, who may also be a 4. Now we can look forward to Greentree and a little player development. Hopefully everyone clears in plenty of time for the summer league.

It remains to be seen whether or not Everhart managed to get a raise out of the deal. Some "inside folks" had indicated to us that there wasn't much support for such a thing. If we hear anything, we will certainly let you know!
