Replacing sharpshooter Connor Harkins will be difficult considering he averaged 20 points per game last season, but senior captains Matt Robbins and Elias Giannopoulos are ready to prove they have the size and speed to make Greenwich a contender this year.
The Blue Wave opened its season with an impressive 72-37 victory over University Monday night and look get a winning streak going to start the year. Last season, the Blue Wave had one of the best seasons in program history, finishing the regular season with a record of 12-4 in the FCIAC 14-6 overall and qualifying for both the FCIAC and Class LL tournaments. The 2017-18 Blue Wave team has a great mix of upperclassmen and underclassmen who will provide quality minutes, led by senior captains, Andrew Darby and Jack Tierney, leading the quest to repeat as FCIAC East champs.
Frank Granito and Kevin Coleman will be on the call.
