Turgeon on Dodd: "Damonte will be fun to coach and he really has big upside. He plays extremely hard and he strives to get better every day. He's almost 6-foot-10 and still growing. He runs, rebounds, and blocks shots, and his best years on the basketball court are ahead of him. He fits the mold of who we recruit as an unselfish and good kid."
