CONFERENCE/DIVISION: South Shore League Sullivan Division (MIAA Division 3)
SIZE OF PROGRAM: 39 total players (F/JV/V) and 4 student managers
Senior Captain Tommy Fanara: 3 year starter and one of the top players in the area. He is an explosive guard who can score at all three levels and is an excellent defender.
Senior Antwonne Graham Jr: Makes up the second half of one of the best backcourts in the state. Dynamic scorer that can shoot from anywhere on the floor and get to the rim at will. He makes everyone on the floor better.
Senior Jeremiah Ismeus: Athletic & Physical post player that can control the paint offensively and defensively.
Senior Dasean Leggett: Do it all “Big Guard” who can play all 5 positions and fills the stat sheet on a nightly basis offensively and defensively.
Senior Drew Donovan: Explosive player that has unmatched speed and quickness. Pushes the pace for the team offensively and defensively.
Senior Mike Van Luling: Vital contributor off the bench and the teams true 6th man. Can play all 5 positions and is a solid rebounder, can shoot it and attack the basket. His most valuable skills are his versatility and understanding of the game.
Junior Hunter Maxwell: Scorer off the bench who can shoot and attack the rim
Senior Kurtis Lucas Summers: Physical guard who is an elite defender and strong finisher at the rim.
Senior Jack Robbins: Presence in the post and intelligent defender.
Juniors Isiah Ricketson and Darrin Zenus are strong and competitive athletes off the bench.
Sophomore Connor Pease is a force in the paint with a soft touch around the rim and on the perimeter.
WHICH GAMES ON THE CALENDAR DO YOU HAVE CIRCLED: Every night we look to come out and compete to get better. Our early season game with Middleboro was a great test as they won the Sullivan Division regular season last year (we were in the Tobin) and the Oliver Ames game was a great test against a higher division team in one of the best basketball leagues in the state. Going forward our league games will be extremely competitive night in and night out as well as non-league games against higher division teams Foxboro, Silver Lake and Bedford. We conclude the season with the Cotter Tournament with 3 excellent teams (Rockland, Cape Cod Academy and Sandwich)
WHAT ARE THE KEYS TO SUCCESS THIS SEASON: The team needs to continue to develop as a group while also improving their individual skills. As a group we look to be the most competitive team on the floor each night to put ourselves in a position to let our talent show. As a group we need to defend as a team and push the pace in transition.
