Harrigan and Bullitt Named Co-Captains for Connecticut College
NEW LONDON, Conn--Connecticut College head men's basketball coach Tom Satran named Rob Harrigan '13 (Milford, Conn.) and John Bullitt '14 (Brookline, Mass.) co-captains at the team's year end banquet last week.
Harrigan, a 6-4 small forward, led the NESCAC in minutes played (35 mpg) while continuing the torrid shooting pace that has characterized his career. In 2012, Harrigan made 49 three-pointers at 44.9%, while averaging 8.8 ppg and 4.3 rpg.
Harrigan has made 141 career threes and usually saves his best for the biggest games, already having nailed two game winners in league play in his career.
"Rob is one of the hardest working players we've ever had here and it shows in his consistent ability to make big shots and his ever improving strength and fitness which has transformed his game on defense and the glass. He is a great competitor and is really driven to succeed on the court. He improves every year because he works at it."
Bullitt, who nearly tripled his playing time from freshmen to sophomore year, was one of the team's most reliable and hardest working performers, consistently battling some of the best front court players in the country in NESCAC play.
"John is a perfect example of being coachable. He tries to master and apply every single fundamental we teach him and his skill level and production have really improved because of it. He is a great role model to our younger players, a model student athlete, and an ever improving performer on the court. Every day, his attitude and effort are perfect, which is exactly what we ask of our players."
Satran and the Camels officially start practice on November 1, 2012.
