PROVIDENCE, R.I. – After the first media timeout of Monday night’s game, Providence fans got what was undoubtedly a very welcome sight. They looked on the court and saw a white jersey with the number 3 on the floor. That would be Kris Dunn, the sophomore point guard who might be the team’s most important player.
As if that wasn’t enough, Dunn didn’t just get in the game. He played well, in fact, handing out eight assists with three turnovers in 21 minutes, and going 1-2 from the field. He also had three steals. His minutes were understandably limited since it was his first game back, and one had to figure a big reason to play on Monday was so that he would make his debut before the Paradise Jam, which is next for the Friars after their 70-49 win over Vermont.
