Raise High With Coach Lonergan and Five Returning Starters for 16 Home Games in 2013-14
Sophomore Patricio Garino helps you 'Get to Know' GW men's basketball's freshman sharpshooter Nick Griffin on the new Tex Silverman Court in the Charles E. Smith Center.
A 6-foot-2 shooting guard, Griffin led Col. Zadok Magruder High School in Rockville, Md., to a 24-3 overall record and a third straight Maryland 4A state final four appearance as a senior in 2013. He averaged a team-best 17.8 points and made 85 three pointers, the fifth-highest total in the Metro D.C. area, to earn Third Team All-Met honors from The Washington Post and a McDonald's All-America nomination.
Griffin, who signed an NLI with GW in November 2012, was also an honorable mention All-Met selection as a junior at Magruder in 2012. He averaged 17 points and made 91 triples at a rate of 46 percent to help the Colonels to a 26-1 mark and a Maryland 4A state championship. He made 10 of his 91 three-pointers en route to a 40-point performance in a victory over Wootton in February 2012.
Griffin is currently rated the 76th-best shooting-guard prospect in the nation and third in the state of Maryland by ESPN.
"We are excited about adding one of the best guards in the D.C. Metro area to our roster next year," said Coach Lonergan. "Nick's outside shooting prowess will allow him to make an immediate impact on our program next season. He comes from a very successful high school and AAU program and is a winner on and off the court."
