Click the play button below to see and hear our latest edition of projo SportsTalk with Kevin McNamara. Kevin discusses Randall Hanke, who is now the nation's leading shooter in terms of field-goal percentage; his opinion that Seton Hall and PC are very evenly matched; the offensive threat posed by the Pirates' Jeremy Hazell; and the Friars' outstanding offensive production so far.
Here's what Kevin said about Hanke's standing atop the national field-goal percentage standings:
"It's not a surprise. Randall two years ago, before he missed a season with an injury, led the country as well. And if he increases his attempts, he has a chance to leave Providence College as their all-time leading field-goal percentage guy. And you know, if all you take is layups, your chances to shoot a very high percentage are quite strong. That's Randall's game. He was seven for seven from the floor against Cincinnati and was the key player of the game, gave them a second-half boost [with] 15 points in 18 minutes. All season long, Keno Davis has said that if Randall rebounds the ball and is any type of a factor defensively, he's going to play more. Sure enough, he had seven rebounds -- four offensive -- against Cincinnati. Obviously he will be a very important player the rest of this season."
