Carlynton's Richardson commits to Duquesne
TribLIVE Sports Videos
After visiting the Duquesne campus Wednesday, Carlynton girls basketball standout Conor Richardson knew she didn't need to visit any more schools.
“I would have never guessed it would go the way it did,” Richardson said. “The campus is beautiful. I fell in love with the coaches, and it is close to home. Everyone talked about finding the right fit, and Duquesne was the right fit for me.”
After missing her sophomore season because of a lower-body injury, Richardson averaged more than 21 points as a junior while leading the Cougars to their first appearance in the WPIAL quarterfinals since 2005.
Richardson — a three-sport athlete who plays volleyball in the fall and runs track in the spring — canceled official visits to La Salle, Seton Hall and Stetson after making her commitment.
