Corvonn Gaines could have taken the low road after losing his starting job on the East Carolina men’s basketball team.

He could have pouted or, even worse, wished failure on the man who took over his role as ECU’s No. 1 point guard — junior transfer Miguel Paul.

After all, Gaines, who’s played his entire college hoops career at East Carolina, started 33 of the Pirates’ 34 games as a sophomore last season and averaged a team-high 30.6 minutes of playing time per game. The 6-foot-4 Madison, Wis., native was the man, until he wasn’t.

This doesn't surprise me one bit, seeing Corvonn act and speak this way. I had him as a student in Fall 2009; he was well-behaved and friendly the whole time, and has remained so ever since. Never a prima donna just because he was / is a varsity athlete. He always makes a point of speaking whenever we see each other on campus. A good ol' regular guy.
