For fans, this will be a mouth-watering affair, as defending champions, Edwin Allen High will be pushed all the way by Hydel, St Jago, Holmwood and Vere Technical, which finished in that order at the ISSA GraceKennedy Boy’s and Girl’s Championships a year ago.

Griffin averaged 10.8 points and 6.5 assists per game in his senior season as a captain and starting point guard for the Orange. If hired, he would fill Mike Hopkins’ spot.Griffin played professionally until 2003, when he returned to SU as an administrative assistant to Boeheim. In 2005, Griffin took his first coaching job as an assistant at St. Francis (New York) College. He also coached at Providence and Hofstra before moving to Dayton’s staff.Prior to the 2011 season, it came down to Griffin and Adrian Autry Sr. for a spot as an assistant coach on Syracuse’s staff. If Griffin eventually joins the Orange’s staff, both will coach together for the first time.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments
