Colonials to Play in Annual Kenner League at Georgetown's McDonough Arena
Get to Know 2014-15 GW Men's Basketball Freshman Matt Cimino
The 138th-best recruit in the Class of 2014 according to Rivals.com, Cimino (sim-inn-oh) averaged 13.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in his final season at Worcester Academy in 2013-14 to earn NEPSAC Class AA Third Team All-League honors. He is also rated as the top 2014 recruit from the state of Maine, 25th-best recruit at the center position, and 29th-best recruit in the East according to ESPN.com. Cimino played the last three seasons with the Hilltoppers after beginning his scholastic career with two seasons at Cheverus High School in his native Maine, helping the Stags to a Class A state title in 2010 and title game appearance in 2011. He is set to be the youngest of three siblings to compete in the NCAA basketball ranks - elder sister, Ashley, was part of four Final Four teams with Stanford women's basketball from 2007-11, and older sister, Caitlin, recently completed her senior season at Connecticut College in 2013-14. "Matt is a very skilled post player who can stretch the defense with his outside shooting," said Coach Lonergan. "He has a nice inside-outside game and with continued hard work in the weight room he will become a very good player for us."
