What a great post by a super devoted dad. Year 1 Greg barely got off the bench. Year 2 he is injured and a lot of grumbling on this board about will he ever contribute. Second half of the season he is healthy and really picks it up and has some outstanding games. Not only did he never give up or crab and bitch he really lifted his game and the kid is a super scholar. Congrats to Greg and his family as well as to Nick Rutherford, these kids, amongst others, are the type of student athletes that make us all so proud.
Looking forward to watching Greg excel over the course of the next 2 seasons and having all college bball fans know who this outstanding kid is.

And to add to RMN's post about Greg, he finished the year with a 3pt FG% just slightly below LJ's. I expect that to improve with the confidence that playing time and seasoning brings.

Agree 100% and if I may add one of the many things that I like so much about Greg is that he almost always plays under control. He doesn’t force things and is a true team player. Underrated and undervalued but very important qualities on a team trying to climb the ranks.

Now there's a name I didn't expect as a graduate.
I guess Mussini has been taking online classes all this time....

Great to see all of them but ...very cool to see Mussini get degree from us.

Federico!!!!...was easy to root for despite his limitations as he had such a nice, effortless touch on his shot.

Cole deserves credit for 4 year walk on and thought he should have gotten that final year scholarship over O'Connell this year for his long term committment.

A great kid. I was sad when he left after two seasons as I thought he was a solid contributor. Then after Lovett bailed on the team early in the season it became even more obvious how Mussini’s contributions were missed.
It took three years more years after he left but he completed his degree. Kudos to Federico and his family. Very proud of his perseverance and wishing him all the very best going forward in life, he will always be a Redmen.

Depending on academic scholarships and other grants in-aid he was receiving, it is possible for Cole to keep those than go on athletic schollie. I don’t know if that was the situation however it was in the case of Andre Stanley when he played here and Jarvis was going to put him on a scholarship.

Congratulations to all of the seniors.
