Dominique McKoy to the Dukes

By Steve DiMiceli

The transformation of the Duquesne Dukes continues as they add their second junior college transfer and seventh incoming member of the 2013 recruiting class today with Dominique McKoy joining the fold. The 6'7'' McKoy was a three star recruit out of his Georgia high school and is listed as a small forward.

McKoy is no stranger to the Atlantic 10 having played for Jim Baron at Rhode Island his freshman year. He averaged 3 points and 2 rebounds while starting two contests including a 10 point 7 rebound performance against Umass. Dave Ascoli from Rhody Rampage  described McKoy as a bit of a project during his time in Kingston. "He was long, athletic, and his skills were pretty raw and unrefined. Not unusual for a freshman."

Following his freshman year, he transferred to Cowley County Community College, and averaged a double - double per game with 14.1 points on 52% from the floor and 11.5 rebounds. He also had an assist to turnover ratio of 1.2.

Just by looking at his numbers, he appears to lack range on his jump shot. He only took six three pointers over his entire sophomore season. As a freshman, Ascoli felt he had a decent inside game, and that he appeared strong and athletic. While he didn't bully opponents in the post, Ascoli didn't think he was a soft player either. He suggested that McKoy needs some work particularly with his defense and ball handling.

McKoy committed to the Dukes over Oral Roberts. Out of high school, he held offers from Oregon St, Murray St and a number of Conference USA schools.
