MVAC basketball hit hard by graduation, titles up for grabs

(Continued)

Seniors Colin Farrell and Matt Moore are capable of playing both inside and outside, making it difficult for opposing defenses to guard. Farrell averaged 10.8 points per game last season while Moore brings the ball up court to set up the offense.

Henry Sandiford will be asked to do the same while Curtis Seaman and Rudy Giessen will be called upon to pull down rebounds. Seth Hart is expected to the team’s sixth man and Kyle Douglas hopes to see increased time after missing most of last season with an injury.

LAKE PLACID

After posting its best record in more than a decade at 9-9 last season, the Blue Bombers are using this year as rebuilding stage for the future.

With only two returners, this year’s squad has more youth than experience. Returning are Casey and Cody Porter. Both were limited in scoring with Casey dropping 11 points and Cody with 18 points. Leading scorers Jacob Daniels and Logan Stephenson were both lost to graduation.

The Blue Bombers opened their season Tuesday with a loss to Chazy. Newcomers Tarik Cecunjanin and Garrett Woodruff tossed in 11 points apiece.

Players Lost

Evan Bickford, Jacob Daniels, Dave Lawrence, Lucas McLean, JP Morrison, Logan Stephenson.

Returning Players

Casey Porter, Cody Porter.

Newcomers

Alex Brandes, Colin Briggs, Tarik Cecunjanin, Casey DiNicola, Chris Kordziel, Colton Preston, Garrett Woodruff.

SCHROON LAKE

Last year’s division champion returns three players from last year. With sound players and a deep bench, the Wildcats have just as good a chance to contend for another title shot.

The team returns senior Jesse Shaugnessy who led the Wildcats with 18.7 points per game last season. Seniors Jeff Armstrong and Bobby Rose will also be key parts to the offense. Along with basketball skill, these three will also be looked to for support by the younger players.
