Baskin headed to Quinnipiac

It took a long time for Tevin Baskin to finally make a decision on where he will continue his baskeball career, but on Wednesday, the senior from Trinity Catholic finally did make one.
And Tom Moore and Quinnipiac University are the fortunate recipients.
Baskin made an oral commitment to Quinnipiac at the high school. Baskin, a three-time Register All-State selection, said he did not make his decision until late Tuesday night.
"I'm very happy to get things back to normal," Baskin said. Moore cannot officially comment on recruits until they sign a National Letter of Intent.
At one time, there were a number of Division I schools in the picture. Even earlier this week, Baskin said the programs at Temple, Siena and Maryland-Baltimore County all made contact within the last few days.
But Baskin said his final four choices came down to Quinnipiac, Manhattan, New Orleans and Binghamton. Baskin said he visited Quinnipiac last week.
"There are a lot of guys who go to big-time schools who end up unhappy," Baskin said. "I had to do what was best for me."
The period to sign a letter of intent ended last week. According to a source, Baskin still needs to take either the SAT or ACT once more to try and qualify academically. Baskin will graduate from Trinity on June 7.
If he gets the proper scores to go along with his grade point average, Baskin will be eligible to be put on scholarship, the source said. Otherwise, he would have to attend either prep school or a junior college.
