Former East Catholic guard Joey Reilly has verbally committed to play basketball at Division I Holy Cross.
Reilly will leave Philips Exeter Academy and attend the Patriot League school this fall.
The 6-0 guard averaged 21 points, six assists, five rebounds and two steals per game for the Eagles, earning a spot on the Register/GameTimeCT First Team. He shot 45 percent from 3-point range, 86 percent from the free-throw line, finished as East Catholic’s all-time leading scorer with 1,828 points and with a 104-7 career record.
East Catholic coach Luke Reilly feels Holy Cross will “be a great for him academically and athletically” for his nephew.
“Joey will really help Coach (Brett) Nelson (in his first season) and the entire staff build something special,” Luke said. “I’m looking forward to the next chapter unfolding because the last one was pretty good.”
