Huuuuump Daaaaaay! Good to see some positive press on Dylan Painter (from ESPN no less), who as we all know turned himself from a mid-major prospect in to a borderline Top 100 player in the country. Painter bloomed a bit earlier than Darrun Hilliard did, but it's good to see another diamond in the rough type of player coming in to the program. Here's hoping for a solid career!
