Jimmy Tricco Transfers to Duquesne
Aug. 6, 2001
PITTSBURGH, Penn - Duquesne University head men's basketball coach Danny Nee announced today that guard Jimmy Tricco has transferred to Duquesne from Gonzaga University.
Tricco, who played in 50 of a possible 68 games in his two seasons at Gonzaga, will be eligible to take to floor for the Dukes in 2002-03. He prepped at Brophy High in Phoenix, Ariz.
"He comes to us from one of the most successful programs in the country. Having the opportunity to compete against some of the best guards in the nation every day at practice at Gonzaga has made Jimmy a better player. He has a good idea of what it takes to win. He is a quality person who will be an asset to the Duquesne basketball program," Nee said.
The 6-8 Tricco, who accompanied the Zags to back-to-back NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 appearances in 2000 and 2001, averaged 1.5 points per game in 23 games last season. He scored a career high 13 points in 18 minutes off the bench at Boise State.
Tricco, who was born in Sewickley - a suburb of Pittsburgh - spent his early years in the Pittsburgh area before moving to Phoenix at age eight.
"We wish Jimmy nothing but the best of luck," Gonzaga head coach Mark Few said. "He's been a part of our success and we know he will take that same dedication and work ethic with him to Duquesne."
