The search for a rebounding presence has turned to redshirt freshman Kevin Cantinol. He had eight points on 4-for-4 shooting and four rebounds at New Orleans Saturday.
Here’s what Andy Kennedy had to say about him Tuesday.
“Chief’s been the one guy that honestly has not been given game time opportunities. A lot of that is based on what we see in practice, but out of desperation he got that opportunity Saturday, and he responded. He’ll continue to get those opportunities. He gave us great minutes, gave us energy. He gives us a presence. He’s a big kid if he’ll play big. His problem is he’s not been playing big.”
