It may be a longshot, but the University of Denver is in the running for one of the top point guards in the country. Josh Perkins, Regis Jesuit's basketball star, has narrowed his list of schools to nine: Arizona, Colorado, Denver, Duke, Gonzaga, Kansas, Minnesota, New Mexico and Stanford.
All but Duke have offered Perkins a scholarship.
Perkins, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound combo guard averaging 25.3 points, 5.8 assists, 7.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game for the eighth-ranked Raiders (9-3). Tuesday, he scored 27 points and had nine rebounds and six assists in a 74-61 win over George Washington. University of Kansas head coach Bill Self was there to watch.
He is rated as the No. 58 player in the nation by ESPN.com, and the No. 8 point guard by Scout.com.
