Dunn, a Brooklyn native who played high school hoops for Thomas Jefferson, averaged 9.4 points per game, good enough for fourth on the team, this past year with the Jonnies. He played extremely well, logging 15 points in the BIG EAST Tournament against Seton Hall (March 11).

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound guard finished his collegiate career with 1,407 points between St. John’s and St. Francis Brooklyn. He sat out his junior season with Cleveland State due to NCAA transfer regulations, making him eligible for another year of hoops.

With the Orange Wave, alongside former Red Storm standout and childhood buddy, Shamorie Ponds, the two led the team to its first PSAL title since 1954 and won the New York State Class AA Federation Title.

The PSAL named Dunn, along with Ponds, as Co-MVPs of the PSAL championship contest at Madison Square Garden after scoring 23 points in a 29-point rout of New York City powerhouse Abraham Lincoln.

The Colonials posted a 4-15 overall record and went 3-12 in Horizon League Conference (HLC) action this past campaign.
