Played two seasons in the Big East, arguably the nation`s elite basketball conference, and left no doubt about his ability during that span...Although a bit undersized at 6-0, Flynn has plenty of game to make up for the lack of ideal height...A tremendous all-around athlete with great quickness, Flynn averaged 17.4 ppg and 6.7 apg as a sophomore after posting 15.7 ppg and 5.3 apg as a freshman...Drives fearlessly to the basket and can finish amidst much taller defenders...Will sacrifice his body for a field goal...Is a smart player who knows his role and can get others in position to succeed...Needs to improve as a shooter, as his jumper is inconsistent at this point.
