Keno Davis thinks he has another overacheiving diamond in the rough in Duke Mondy. Mondy's high school coach agrees. Grand Rapids Catholic Central coach T.J. Carnegie thinks that Mondy is a perfect fit for Keno Davis' system that puts a premium on good guard play and ability to knock down open shots.

"Duke is just a complete player. He can play both guard spots. He's legitamately 6-3. He can knock down shots and also penetrate and kick to other open shooters. He's the best passer I've ever coached.", says Carnegie who also had nothing but praise for Mondy's character off the court as well as his leadership skills.

Mondy, who also set a school record last year with 70 steals, will team with fellow D-1 recruit Sultan Mohammed to make up one of the more formidable backcourts in the state of Michigan. Mohammed, a 6-3 junior complements Mondy's shooting and playmaking skills with the ability to slash and get to the rim. Catholic Central hopes to build on last year's 18-6 District Championship run with an even further run in 2008-09.

Duke Mondy sounds like a winner, someone that will help Keno Davis and Providence improve their NCAA Basketball Odds at reaching the NCAA Tournament in future seasons.
