Constant Earns Full Ride
One of the best available point guards left on the board in New England's Class of 2021, St. Andrew's and New Hampshire Saints' Matt Constant, announced he was accepting a full athletic scholarship offer to Pace University on Sunday night.
While the pandemic robbed him of a true senior year and a chance to break the program's all-time wins record, Constant still had one of the most decorated careers in SAS history. A four year varsity player and mulit-year starter, he played big minutes in the Saints run to a NEPSAC championship as a sophomore, scored over 1,000 career points, and averaged nearly 15 points per game last year as a junior along with 6 rebounds and 6 assists per game.
Perhaps most importantly, Constant has had a deserved reputation as one of New England's hardest workers throughout his entire high school career.
Now, Pace is getting a division I caliber talent who has built up his body in the weight room, established himself as a highly skilled lead guard and very tough shot-maker.
"The measure of a great point guard is wins and losses," Saints head coach Mike Hart said. "The other things like leadership, running an offense or a defense, and helping make other players better are important too. Matt has all these qualities but, most importantly, wins games. He will do whatever the team needs to win and will be a terrific college player. I know of no other kid who has spent more time in the gym and weight room like Matt. That says a lot because we've been lucky and have had kids who worked extremely hard too. He's a total gym rat and earns everything."
Below are highlights from his abbreviated senior season.
