#34 David Hinton

  • Position: F
  • Year: Redshirt Senior
  • Height: 6-9
  • Weight: 235
  • Birthday: September 28, 1990
  • Hometown: Winston-Salem NC
  • Major: Master’s Degree in Sport Leadership

2012-13 (Redshirt Senior)

As the Ram’s only walkon, David Hinton has never and will never get enough minutes to accumulate significant stats. Despite playing very few minutes, Hinton has always earned praise for his hard work. As a senior, Hinton has an opportunity to be a leader and help the Rams win with intangibles.

Room for improvement

The Ram’s boast one of the deepest front courts in the Shaka Smart era, and Hinton will likely see very few minutes. When Hinton enters the game, he needs to use his physical presence to draw fouls and wear out opposing big men.

Key stat: David Hinton drew two key charges from Garrett Stutz, limiting the Shockers best post player to 17 minutes as #12 VCU beat #5 Wichita State in the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

2011-12 (Redshirt Junior)

VCU’s lone walk-on, David Hinton has never played significant minutes, but he has always shown the ability to impact the game in small spurts.

Highlight: Since arriving at VCU, Hinton has studied boxing to improve his toughness, and it paid off against Wichita State in the NCAA tournament. Playing only five minutes, Hinton drew two key charges from Garrett Stutz. Hinton’s front-court defense against the extremely talented Shockers was important to the victory, and the Rams boasted an impressive +6 points while #34 was on the court.

The pieces of HAVOC! 4.0

A coach and his system are only as good as the players on the court. HAVOC! 4.0 found success because of the talent and depth of VCU’s roster.

2013 seniors: David Hinton, the junkyard dog

David Hinton is from a different era: before HAVOC!, before VCU was regularly on national television, and before the Rams were expected to go to the NCAA Tournament.

Here’s to a great season

It’s tough to feel good after a season-ending loss, but this season was full of terrific memories.

The pieces of last season’s well-oiled HAVOC machine

Last October, the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams had so much unproven talent on their roster that even speculating about lineups and rotations was a waste of time, but by March, the team looked like a well oiled “HAVOC” machine. Here’s a look at the pieces of that machine.
