U-Mass Plucks Pair of Local Hoopsters
Weird how these things often seem to happen at the same time, as U-Mass landed verbal commitments from two local seniors: Riverdale Baptist guard Javorn Farrell and Woodbridge forward Raphiel Putney.
Colleague Matt Stanmyre chimes in with this report on Putney:
Putney orally committed to play basketball for Massachusetts on Saturday, picking them over George Washington, Rhode Island, St. Joseph's, Niagara and Richmond.
The 6-foot-8, 170-pound Putney averaged 9 points and 7 rebounds last season for Woodbridge. He said he will play on the perimeter for the Minutemen.
"I liked the players and the coaches a lot," Putney said. "I'm very excited."
