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.
