Senior Wingman Finishes Off Great HS Career

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a free look at the individual game of talented senior Evan Conti of Holy Cross High School in Flushing, New York ... Conti had a terrific final year under head coach Paul Gilvary ...

Evan Conti, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound small forward/shooting guard from Holy Cross High School in Flushing, New York is likely to have a very productive career at Quinnipiac for several reasons. 1. He competed for a terrific head coach and played in a very good basketball program. 2. He's a hard worker who has overcome adversity. 3. He continues to make improvements in his individual game.

Evan previously told us that head coach Tom Moore was a key factory in why he decided on Quinnipiac over Wyoming. "Tom Moore (head coach at Quinnipiac) has built a elite program at Quinnipiac," Conti said previously. "And I want to help be a part of it."

Conti also stated: "Quinnipiac is a beautiful school and close enough that my family and friends can go two alot of games and support."


Conti averaged 18 points a game and grabbed 10 rebounds per contest during the 2010-2011 boy's basketball season.


Conti had interest from LIU, UMBC, Tulane, Hartford, Kent State, New Hampshire, Fairfield, Holy Cross College, and St. Francis of Pennsylvania.


He is a leader, a senior who is counted on at both ends of the court to make the key plays. He makes subtle contributions too, boxing out his man, finding open teammates for easier shots.

Evan surpassed the 1,000 point mark this season and nearly 600 rebounds for his career after having a great senior year for Holy Cross.

An injury two seasons ago initially 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."
