Because Vincent Council plays for Providence (15-17; 15th place in the conference), many people, even ones that follow Big East basketball, don't know much about this top-level guard.
As a junior, Council was selected as third-team All-Big East, leading PC in scoring (15.9 PPG) and assists (7.5 APG—No. 4 in the nation).
He and the Friars should be primed for a big 2012-13 season.
A pass-first point guard who excels in the open court, the Brooklyn native will be surrounded by a variety of scorers next season.
Virtually everyone returns from this year's team, plus McDonald's All-American Kris Dunn and Jordan Brand All-American Ricardo Ledo will add further scoring punch.
With Council back at the controls, the Friars may be one of the most improved teams in the nation.
