EGI GJIKONDI


MALDEN  BOYS' BASKETBALL


Gjikondi suited up for the Malden varsity team last year as a freshman, and the native Albanian was a key player in the Golden Tornadoes' run to the Division 1 North sectional quarterfinals. At 6-foot-8, he can score effectively in the post and in the mid-range game, but Gjikondi is not limited to the low block  Malden coach Don Nally raves about his ability to run the floor and finish in the open court. Gjikondi could emerge as one of the state's top players this season as a sophomore, and with a little more polish he should start attracting attention from Division I colleges.
