PRTO HEADLINES (click on underlined for news item link)
 
In his article about "players who deserve more hype", Seth Greenberg of ESPN.com lists guard Olivier Hanlan of Boston College.  In the article, the former college coach said "Hanlan has emerged as one of the best guards in the ACC. He closed out his freshman season by dropping 41 points in a win against Georgia Tech in the opening round of the ACC tournament and built on that performance his sophomore season. Hanlan shot 34.7 percent from deep and got to the line seven times a game.  At 6-4, he’s a tall guard who plays at his own pace. He does an excellent job of changing speed and direction and uses his size to shoot over the defense. He’s patient coming off screens and is hard to defend off ball screens. Eagles coach Jim Christian is expected to use him both on and off the ball."
