WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross Varsity Club has announced that five individuals have been selected for induction into the Holy Cross Athletic Hall of Fame. Included among the 2006 inductees is former basketball player Kevin Greaney (Class of 1982).
Greaney was a three-year starter on the Holy Cross men's basketball team, serving as co-captain during his senior year in 1981-1982. He helped lead the team to an overall record of 72-43 (.626) over the course of his career, with the Crusaders advancing to the NCAA Tournament once and the National Invitation Tournament twice. During his senior year, Greaney led the team in scoring with an average of 14.4 points per game, and was named first team All-ECAC. He finished his career with 1,150 points, including a high of 28 against Boston College during his senior year, and still ranks as Holy Cross' 26th all-time leading scorer. Between his junior and senior seasons, Greaney was a member of the NIT All-Star team which toured Columbia and the Dominican Republic. He also received the Richard J. Maloney Award from the Varsity Club in 1982, as the basketball team's MVP.
This year's other inductees are Tom Alberghini (Class of 1943, football), Susan Daley (Class of 1992, track & field), Genoa Grosch (Class of 1999, softball) and Nick Manzello (honorary, sports writer).
These five individuals will be formally inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, May 6, at the Varsity Club's annual dinner, to be held in the Hogan Campus Center.
