Things couldn’t be better for ex-NYU basketball player Dom Cristiano, who received offers from Division II St. Thomas Aquinas (NY) last week, and picked another one from D-II Lincoln Memorial (Tenn.) yesterday.
But today, Cristiano got word that D-I Alabama A&M Hoops wants him, too, making life even sweeter for the six-foot-eight, 215-pound senior forward.
Cristiano is a graduate transfer with one year left of eligibility and could factor into serious minutes with the Bulldogs, who finished with an 8-22 overall record and a 5-13 mark in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC).
Cristiano, an alum of Greens Farm Academy High School, in Westport Connecticut, was a member of the basketball team at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, but did not see any action.
The Valhalla, New York, native only played in one game with NYU (Eastern Athletic Conference) during the 2019-20 campaign but led the team in scoring with 391 points and 16.3 points per game (24 contests) in the previous season.
Additionally, Cristiano paced the Violets in blocks, rebounds, free throws, and field goals, and recorded eight double-doubles that same year.
