King’s College men’s basketball coach J. P. Andrejko has announced former Crestwood star Chris Fazzini will continue his academic and athletic careers with the Monarchs.
A 6-foot-4 forward, Fazzini enjoyed an outstanding career with the Comets where he scored 1,070 points. He was a three year starter at Crestwood after serving as the team’s sixth man his freshman season. In his final year with the Comets, Fazzini led the team to a 21-4 record and the 2014 WVC championship.
He was a three-time WVC all-star selection and was named to the PIAA District 2 all-star team. He played with the Jersey Shore Warriors AAU team and was selected to the WVC/ George P. Moses Senior All-Star Game.
In his final season at Crestwood, Fazzini averaged 14.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and nearly two assists per-game.
“We are very excited to have Chris coming to King’s as he is an outstanding individual who will be an asset to not only our basketball team but to the entire campus community,” Andrejko stated. “Chris is a versatile player who can not only score but he also has that rare ability to make players around him better because of the variety of his skills and his ability to play multiple positions. Defensively, he can guard multiple positions and can defend the perimeter while also being able to help inside. Players who have been successful for us have traditionally been unselfish and versatile and he fits that mold. He has a good midrange shot and has the ability to attack the basket. He needs to work on his long-range shooting but I know he has the work-ethic to do just that. We are happy he chose King’s and expect him to be a big part of our program for the next four years.”
A fine student who is undecided upon a major, Fazzini was a four-year selection to the National Honor Society as well as the Spanish National Honor Society. He is the son of Kevin and Sharon Fazzini, Drums.
Fazzini selected King’s over local Division III rivals Wilkes and Misericordia, along with Division II Bloomsburg University and Stonehill College.
