Despite having a thumb injury that eventually required surgery end his season prematurely, Providence College commit Greg Gantt has still been racking up the end of the year basketball awards.
Gantt received five votes and made the Associated Press’ All-State Team in North Carolina. Gantt, who was a McDonald’s All-American nominee, averaged 14.4 points and 7.1 rebounds in 19 games for his Senior season.
Gantt has also been named to the ALL-USA North Carolina Boys Basketball Team by USA Today. Unlike the Associated Press’ All-State Team, the USA Today Team is actually separated into two five player teams. Gantt was named to the 2nd Team along with some other Providence College targets Jalen Cone and Kadin Shedrick.
There will probably be some more accolades to come for the future Friar, but imagine what the end of the basketball season would have had in store from him if he didn’t hurt his thumb. I’m especially pumped to see Greg in a Friars uniform next season as I think he is going to have an immediate and substantial impact on the team as a whole. His energy and playing style is infectious and I can’t wait for him to get integrated with next year’s squad.
