Draft Scouting 2002
Providence 5'9" 165
PG - SR.
Forget that Linehan
is 5'9". This guy is TOUGH! A hard-nosed PG, with unshakable confidence
that is an absolute pest defensively. The Big East all-time steals
leader. Supplies more ball pressure than any PG we saw this season.
Has great handles, and stamina. His energy seems endless. Sees the
floor well. Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American, NABC
Defensive Player of the Year, BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year,
ESPN.com Defensive Player of the Year. All-BIG EAST Second Team.
Linehan led his team to a championship at the Portsmouth Invitational
Tournament. He also won the H. Thomas Fennell Sportsmanship Award
at the PIT. ...Was second in the nation in steals per game @ 4.5.
He had 139 steals in 31 contests this season. He established a NCAA
career steals record with 385 steals. In addition he also owns the
BIG EAST single-season steals record @ 77 and the BIG EAST single-game
steals record 11 . This season, he averaged 12.5 points, 4.4 assists
and 3.8 rebounds per game.
