Evan Conti is quieting the naysayers that said he was not going to be a successful player at the Division 1 level. He’s not athletic enough, he does not have a definitive position, he’s slow and one Coach actually said to me flat out he doesn’t look like a basketball player. He’s been having a stellar year for us as he’s brought an efficient blue collar approach to practice and basketball games. He’s a natural leader and most importantly a winner, Evan is playing well for us not only in conference play but also non-league play as well said Coach Tom Moore.
For the season Conti is currently averaging 8.3 PPG, 4.4 REBS and 2.4 he’s a real stat stuffer Coach Moore added. But, the most important stat are the ones that aren’t listed on any sheets or in any books. The all out hustle plays that our Bobcat Nation Fans, Our Student Section Coaches and Teammates appreciate.
I’m not surprised at all, Evan is doing what Evan does, said Hasani Stewart Program Director of Raising Champions Elite. He’s a go getter, a grinder, coaches dream, a consummate professional and teammate. Who doesn’t love Evan, so to say I’m surprised by his success I’m not. When Evan joined our program he was out for several weeks with a broken foot, he never missed a practice or a game. He never stopped working he did everything from lifting to working on stationary ball handling drills, form shooting and free throws. By the time he was cleared he was firing on all cylinders. His desire and work ethic is far above any player that I’ve ever worked with added Stewart. Evan is joy to have as a friend, teammate and player. Come out to support Evan this week as the Quinnipiac University Bobcats take on St. Francis NY this Thursday February 28, 2013 at 7pm in downtown Brooklyn and LIU at 4pm Saturday March 2, 2013.
