Key Returning Players:
Josh Giaquinto (G- Sr)- 6’1″– This will be his 3rd year starting. Was named to 1st to All-Colonial League last season. PPG: 17.9 (1st on Team), RPG: 4.6, APG: 2.5, SPG: 1.9- He has an opportunity to be a league MVP if he plays the way he is capable of. He has good quickness & leaping ability and can get to the basket easily, as well as hit the three.

Ashton Kluska (G- Sr)- 6’0″- This will be his 2nd year starting. PPG: 9.8 (3rd on Team), RPG: 3.1, APG: 2.9, SPG: 1.2, FT: 69.8%- He came on big for us towards the second half of the season after breaking his leg during football his sophomore season. He can hit the 3, get to the basket, & plays solid defense.

2022 Outlook:

Strengths: Our depth will be a strength. I think we can go 9-10 players without much of a drop off. I think we also have 4 players who could score in double digits any given night.

Question Marks: Can we rebound with our lack of real height? Can we keep teams under 50 ppg?
