Reyes big and better than ever at LHS

Swept away from Lawrence program by AAU coach's advice, giants Reyes back to work for Lancers

(Continued)

“What a great day for basketball in the community, right?” queried Fazio.

And then the text arrived Saturday morning.

“The Fazios are undefeated at the Garden. Don’t screw it up.”

That text came from Fazio’s daughter, a former Warrior great now at UConn. Ally played five times on the parquet floor and never lost.

“Now you talk about pressure,” laughed Coach Fazio, whose club went out and took care of business with a victory over Brookline. “Seriously, the kids were fired up and they were ready. Like I said, it was just a great event for us all. And you want to play well when teams from all over the state are watching at an event like this.”

NOTHING BUT CLASS

Give Barry Spears Sr. credit, not only for keeping the Georgetown High program going in the right direction after the sudden death of coach Mike Rowinski, but for honoring Rowinski’s memory with taste and class.

The Royals came out this week brandishing basic white shooting shirts this week with Rowinski’s name on the back. Very simple, but a statement made that coach is truly missed.

REGGIES ROLLING

Greater Lawrence Tech is hoping its sudden spurt of four straight wins isn’t a matter of too little, too late when it comes to the CAC large title.

“We’re playing well right now. The kids are playing good team defense and it shows on the floor,” said Coach Dan Habib, who’s watched a different leader step up every night on the offensive whether it be one of the Estrellas – Frankely or Alexis – dependable Oscar Reynoso, or somebody else.

While they’ve locked up a state tourney berth at 10-2 already, the Reggies are looking to catch Greater Lowell.

They will need some help, though, as the Gryphons remain unbeaten in league play, while Greater Lawrence and Chelsea (which beat the Reggies early but had that one avenged this week) have two defeats in the conference.
