Preziosa is inheriting a team with a solid, experienced nucleus.
Juniors Matt Costello, Dom Luoni, Rishad DeSilva, Travis Maxner, and Devin Graham each got a lot of time this season, and sophomore Jhon Oliveira worked his way into the starting lineup late in the year.
“A lot of guys in this situation might want to look to the future,” Preziosa said. “I’m looking right away. I want to give (next year’s) seniors a proper send off and bring some championship basketball back to Fenwick.”
Preziosa, 42, grew up in Malden and now lives in Melrose with his wife and two sons. He’s well aware of Fenwick’s tradition on the court and he’s hoping his teams can add to it.
Assistant coach Ryan Sasso, a Fenwick graduate who scored over 1,000 points during his high school career, will remain with the program.
“I’ve been doing my homework. I have some films from last year and I’m very familiar with the roster,” Preziosa said. “I think I have some ideas that we can improve on what they’ve been building and hopefully bring it to the next level.”
