CORMIER ON CARPENTER
“Tommy is a very heady player with the ability to play several
positions on the floor. It’s a shame he missed out on his senior year,
but he is back to
100 percent as he showed in the preseason. We will utilize him in a variety
of ways to take advantage of his excellent basketball IQ.”
