The Development of Matt Cimino
- Due to state citizenship issues, Matt Cimino played with the NH Rivals out West instead of the Mass Rivals, (which wont be an issue next year as Cimino will be a student at Worcester Academy).Coming into the Summer, everyone knew that Cimino was a talented big man with 3-pt range...the one question on Cimino was whether he would mix it up enough in the paint. And this summer, Cimino showed he was more than willing to get physical down low. He mixed it up all summer, initiating contact and throwing his huge frame around like a speak-easy brawler, except his method of brawling consisted of boxing out, fighting for post postition, challenging shots, and just taking up space in gernal. His new-found commitment to an equal partnership between the paint and the perimeter has Cimino on the rise as a prospect, as proven by the fact that yesterday, he received his 1st D1 Scholarship Offer from UMass. Only a rising-Sophomore, Cimino figures to be seeing a lot more Birthday Invitations as time matriculates..
