Bona Adds Third Recruit

By Bob DiCesare

St. Bonaventure basketball picked up its third recruit in the last 10 days today when 6-4 JUCO guard Andell Cumberbatch signed a national letter of intent. Cumberbatch, a native of East Orange, N.J., averaged 14.2 points and 8.2 rebounds last season.

"We're really impressed with the progression and improvement Andell has made in just one year," Bona coach Bona Mark Schmidt said in a university release. "He's a hard worker and his dedication and commitment has clearly yielded results. He's a great shooter who also crashes the glass hard, which is a rare combination we're looking to take advantage of right away."

The Bonnies also recently landed Xavier Smith, a 6-7 forward from Plano, Texas, and Denzell Gregg, another 6-7 forward, out of Syracuse. Both are high school recruits.
