GLENDIVE – DCC’s Hunter McKinney has signed a Letter of Intent to play for his hometown school, the University of Providence in Great Falls.
McKinney was a 6’2 freshman guard for a Bucs team that finished 20-12 overall and 10-4 in conference. He averaged 3 points while shooting 36% from the field and 35 percent from the 3-point line. His season high was 10 against Little Bighorn College. McKinney also accounted for 9 points against Gillette College and United Tribes Technical College, connecting on three from long range in both games. McKinney attended high school at Great Falls High School and was a big part of a team that finished third in the Class AA State Tournament.
He joins an Argonauts team that went 18-12 in Steve Keller’s first season. Providence shot nearly 40% from the 3-point line on the season and made over 9 three pointers per game.
“Hunter spent a lot of time in the gym on his own working on his game,” said Bucs’ head coach Joe Peterson. “He is one of the hardest working players I’ve coached and as good of a shooter as you’ll find. I’m excited that he found a good fit and will get to return home to continue his education and play basketball.”
