The reasons are is Evan does so many things well on the court. He is a leader, a senior who is counted on at both ends of the court. Currently, Conti is averaging almost 18 points a game and recording nearly 10 rebounds.
He is an unselfish player too, finding open teammates usually around five times a game for baskets.
RECRUITING INTEREST FOR EVAN CONTI:
Conti has an offer from the University of Hartford and interest from Kent State, New Hampshire, Fairfield, and Holy Cross College.
An injury last season hurt Conti's chances of drawing more recruiting interest early in his recruiting process. "I had a lot more interest last year but I was out for three months in the AAU season with a broken ankle and a lot of those schools stopped recruiting me."
Evan plays AAU basketball for the Rising Stars under head coach Danny Gimple.
