endicott college men’s basketball

2011-12 winter preview Entering the 2011-12 season, the men’s basketball team has their sights set on a Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) title with third year head coach Phil Rowe at the helm and a talented cast of returners and newcomers hungry for championship glory. Endicott has already been selected as the preseason favorites to win this year’s CCC Championship as voted by the league’s head coaches, but Rowe’s Gulls know they will have to battle day-in and day-out to achieve their end goal. “This league is competitive from top to bottom,” says Coach Rowe. “The new structure of our conference allows us to play each team twice and I believe that will be a good gage of how our team matches up with CCC opponents.” Based on last year’s standing alone, the Blue and Green anticipate not just a return trip to the playoffs but a deep run at a conference championship. Endicott made it into the CCC Semifinals after a thrilling overtime road win over Roger Williams in the quarterfinals before falling to Wentworth, ending their 2010-11 season. After making the postseason conference tournament in back-to-back seasons under Coach Rowe, the Gulls are optimistic for achieving their sixth conference title. A trio of captains will lead the Blue and Green on the hard court this season. Senior Aaron Karkow, junior Lance Greene and sophomore Tyler Burkhart are expected to provide leadership on and off the court to maximize each player’s potential and help the team achieve their goals this winter. After graduating just one senior last year, Endicott welcomes back five student-athletes who had significant starting lineup experience including Greene, the team’s point guard and leading scorer, and sophomore Lachlan Magee, who started in all 27 games as a rookie. Greene, who missed just three

games due to injury, earned First Team All-CCC and D3Hoops All-Northeast Region Fourth Team honors after leading the Gulls with 15.0 points per game while averaging a team-high 32.5 minutes per game. He shot 47.5% from the field and 75.2% from the free throw line. Greene was also a strong defender of opposing guards with 2.0 steals per game. Magee in his first season in the Blue and Green, averaged 13.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 0.8 steals. Magee also finished second-best on the team with 32 makes beyond the three-point line. Senior forward Aaron Karkow was a consistent contributor in 25 game starts with 8.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks per game. Karkow has the ability to hit the outside shot, as he hit a team-high 35 three-pointers last year. He had career-highs in points (217), rebounds (142), assists (40) and steals (19) in his junior season. Other returning forwards on the roster include senior Erik Callo who stood out as Endicott’s premiere rebounder and defender last year. Callo grabbed an average of 7.2 rebounds per game while swatting a team-high 58 blocks. He also contributed offensive with 195 total points (8.5 per game) in 23 games played, with a 60.0% field goal percentage. The Gulls also welcome back senior Tanner McEntee who appeared in 20 games off the bench last season and will once again provide depth for Endicott’s big men. Endicott’s third captain, sophomore Tyler Burkhart, has proven his ability to shoot from the outside and cut to the basket after a strong rookie campaign. Burkhart, despite missing a large part of the first half of the 2010-11 season due to injury, averaged 6.2 points per game by making 14 three-pointers and hitting 26-of-33 (78.8%) from the free throw line. Fellow sophomore Bennett Knowlton will serve as Endicott’s other option to attack the hoop and hit long range jumpers as Knowlton scored 207 points in his freshman season. He


hit 38.7% of his shots from the field including 29-of-81 (35.8%) from three-point land. Knowlton also contributed with 31 assists and 18 steals. Endicott’s backcourt welcomes back sophomore guard Jordan Lewis, a lockdown defender with good court vision who will put in significant minutes this season. Lewis recorded 32 steals last year (1.2 per game) and a team-high 81 assists (3.0 per game) while contributing with 4.6 points per game. Fellow sophomore Mike Alvarez will come off the bench to provide an offensive spark for the Gulls. Coach Rowe’s freshman class boasts two highly talented big men with versatile skills and a crop of players that will mix in well with Endicott’s offensive efforts this year. “Our freshmen were all phenomenal high school players and as they begin to adjust to

playing at the collegiate level, they will certainly add to what we are trying to do.”

serve to provide depth for the Gulls in their rookie seasons.

John Henault, a 6’2 shooting guard out of St. Bernard’s in Fitchburg, finished his high school career as his team’s all-time leading scorer with 1,682 points and will be an immediate impact player for the Gulls in 2011-12. Power forwards Andre Makris and Matt Kneece tower at 6’7 and 6’8, respectively, and will provide depth for the Blue and Green. Makris, a Pomperaug High graduate, has the ability to play inside and outside for the Gulls, causing opposing defenses to stretch out. Kneece comes from Shrewsbury High where he created the reputation as a premiere low-post player by finishing around the rim with rebounding skills.

Endicott begins their season on November 15th with a home opener against the College of Saint Joseph (VT) before hosting their annual North Shore Collegiate Tip-Off Tournament, sponsored by Comfort Inn North Shore, on November 18th-19th at MacDonald Gymnasium. The Gulls begin their conference schedule shortly after with a road game against defender CCC champions Salve Regina on November 30th in Newport, R.I. In the new year, Endicott will face off against North Shore rival and preseason MASCAC favorites Salem State on January 4th before they hit the bulk of their CCC schedule. The Gulls anticipate an appearance in the CCC Tournament which is scheduled for February 21st through the 25th with the league winner advancing into the NCAA Tournament.

Endicott’s freshman class also includes guards Mike Sallese and Zach Markowitz as well as forward Kyle Connor. Each player will

Philip Rowe - Head Coach

meet the coaches

Phillip Rowe begins his third season as head coach of the Endicott men’s basketball program. In the 2010-11 season, the Gulls reached the CCC Semifinals with a 17-10 (8-5 CCC) record after appearing in the quarterfinals in Rowe’s first year with the program. Rowe brings over 30 years of athletic administration and coaching experience to the Endicott Athletic Department. Rowe has served as the head coach at the University of New Hampshire (1999-05), Keene State (1996-99), Plymouth State (1985-90), and New England College (1978-84), and has been an assistant at George Washington University (2005-06), Boston University (1990-92), and St. Anselm College (1984-85). Rowe most recently held the title of Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs for Athletics at Daniel Webster College, where he was responsible for the oversight and direction of the Eagles’ intercollegiate athletic teams, along with the intramural and club sport programs. He was also Daniel Webster’s Athletic Director from 1993-96. Rowe has a history of transforming basketball programs, as he did at NEC, Plymouth State and Keene State. Rowe helped lead the Pilgrims to three NAIA appearances after taking over a one-win team to start his tenure. At Plymouth State, Rowe turned the Panthers from a last place team into a nationally ranked and co-champion squad in the Little East. He continued his success in the Little East Conference as the Head Coach at Keene State, posting back-to-back 20 win seasons with the Owls. His coaching success was solidified with a 27-3 season and the sixth-overall national ranking at George Washington University as an assistant coach. Rowe developed the Colonials recruiting plan, budget expenditures, travel arrangements and coordinated all aspects of practice, game preparation and scouting. GWU captured the Atlantic-10 Championship and advanced to the Second Round of the NCAA Division I Tournament during Rowe’s one season with the Colonials.

Rich Fazzi - Assistant Coach Rich Fazzi begins his second season as an assistant at Endicott College. He comes to Endicott after spending the last five years as the associate head coach at Suffolk University. Prior to Suffolk he spent one year as an assistant at Newbury College. Fazzi graduated from Becker College in 2004. He was a three year starter and two year captain. He left the Worcester campus as the 8th all time leading scorer and also set the career field goal percentage record. During the summer, Fazzi works numerous summer camps including Hoop Mountain, Hoop Group Elite and the Boston College basketball camp.
