Pendleton - With headphones wrapped around his neck and a Butler jumpsuit nestled around his six-foot-6, 185-pound frame, Kellen Dunham barely resembles the incoming freshman Brian Hahn described walking into the Pendleton Heights gymnasium five summers ago.
Then, Dunham, stood 5-10 and 120 pounds.
Now, he’s the starting shooting guard at Butler and is third on the team in scoring, averaging 11 points per game for the Bulldogs (4-2).
Through the years, while nature elevated his height and weight, Dunham nurtured his game by becoming a gym rat.
“The biggest characteristic he carries with him as a player is that he is an incredibly dedicated worker,” said Hahn, in his seventh-year at PH. “He does something to make himself a better basketball player 365 days a year.”
