    Good deal.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Our long national waiting game is over... welcome back Dante.
    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    On a very serious note, maybe this move falls a bit short on the HR scale; I doubt wholeheartedly the other 2 assistants feel as exuberant as XH members.
    I have seen only two great plays: Hamlet and put the ball into the basket

    I have to agree with Joe on this. Personally, I love it because D25 is back in the house, but we have spent this whole time thinking about what recruiting region is this next assistant going to bring in: DC, NY, etc. and this likely won't resonate on a national scale. That being said, WELCOME BACK DANTE!

    I think Dante is a fine hire for the third assistant. It's definitely not a homerun, but it's good to see a Xavier guy on the bench.

    These are my feelings too. You can play a little loose with that 3rd assistant role, especially with how Hayes and Johnson are viewed as great recruiters. It's always great to see a Xavier guy there, and I personally think, later down the road, Dante will be a great hire/coach. I've thought that coaching would be his path ever since he graduated and always expected him to make his way back to the Cintas Center at some point. I'm looking forward to seeing how Dante will be able to recruit at the Big East level. Should be a good challenge for him and I expect good things from him.
