Basketball - Boys' Junior Varsity

The Junior Varsity basketball squad looks to continue the momentum from a successful 9-2 record during the 2017-18 season.  Although 10 players graduated, the five that return make up a strong and talented group.  The backcourt is led by Danny Moors '20, a skilled point guard with excellent handle.  His running mate will be Salvatore Masciarelli '21, a volume scorer who can get to the rim almost any time he wants and is a slick three-point shooter.  The frontcourt starts with Michael Acquaah-Harrison '20, a gifted player who could have an exceptional season playing many more minutes than he did last year.  He is capable of dominating a game on both ends of the floor.  The interior is composed of Ryan Martin '20 and Luke Lageman '19, two tough customers who can rebound and who are very good passers for their size.

The rest of the roster will be filled out with newcomers and players from last year's IIIrds program.  There are definitely a handful of solid players to complete the rotation.

The Golden Knights will battle teams they're familiar with this winter, namely Northfield Mount Hermon, Worcester Academy, Rectory School, Pomfret School, Wilbraham-Monson, etc.  The coaching staff is extremely excited to get going in late November! 

Record: 10-2
