As his recruitment heats up, Quinn Cook is focusing on four major schools and has three official visits set.
The Oak Hill (Va.) point guard ranked No. 7 in the Class of 2011 at his position will visit UCLA this coming weekend, Duke Oct. 15 and Villanova Oct. 22. He would also like to visit Kansas but no date has been set.
Asked if he could envision going to any school aside from those four, he said Tuesday, “Not yet.”
As for UCLA, Cook will trip there this weekend along with Memphis wing Adonis Thomas.
“I like them,” he said of UCLA. “Coach [Ben] Howland knows how to put point guards in the NBA and you’re in L.A. You can’t go wrong with UCLA tradition. That’s one of my options as well.”
GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Eddy Curry is limping to the finish of his New York Knicks career.
The oft-injured center will miss at least four weeks with a strained right hamstring, the third straight year he was sidelined early in training camp.
“You hate it. He just can’t get over the hump,” Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni said Monday.
Curry was hurt during practice Sunday and had an MRI exam Monday that confirmed the injury. The Knicks said recovery time is a minimum four to six weeks and that Curry is not expected to travel with the team on its trip to Europe for exhibition games in Italy and Paris.
