Div. Boys 3-5 Basketball Preview Players to Watch – Boston Herald

The Div. 3 scenery should have a strong Boston flavor.

Defending Boston City League champions Latin Academy, Tech Boston, and New Mission all have teams capable of playing through March.

Latin Academy returns a pair of four-year varsity performers in point guard Benny Martinez and forward Osasu Woghiken as well as forward Brennan Shapiro and goalkeeper Osman Aden. New Mission will rely on guard Hassan Jenkins and forward Kemar Morgan, while Tech Boston will have guard Elijah Clunie, Youssouf Mboucoh, Curt Brooks and Jmal Buauge as well as forward Kervenslee Blanc.

Div. 4 Abington co-champions move to Div. 3 and return guards Tommy Fanara and Antwone Graham Jr. Few people get more out of their roster than Steve Harrington at Watertown and he’s back forwards Adam Patterson and Tyler Timperio.

St. Mary’s are expected to be among the top teams in the Catholic Central League as guards David Brown and Ali Barry return with forwards Derick Coulanges, Omri Merryman and Henri Miraka. Rob Sarmiento replaces Joel Burke at Arlington Catholic and he has a good core in guards Jimmy Ball and Andre Perez, while Ryan Svendsen returned to AC after averaging 20 points per game there in freshman.

Bishop Fenwick, Archbishop Williams and Austin Prep will be competitive in the deep CCL.

Burke was a co-champion in Div. 3 last year and is expected to be a Div. 4 this winter. Sean Ryan returns quality talent led by Guards Ramsay Checo, Takei Galloway, Jaeden Roberts (son of former South Boston legend Roger Roberts) and Jasaad Fenton as well as big man Nahkeem Singleton.

Wareham is still a contender and should be strong with guards Ajay Lopes and Daejon Gibson returning. Randolph will be leaning on guards Stevens Joacine, Lenny Tangishaka, Malik White and Marquis White, while forward Kevin Federle is set to have a big year for Cohasset.

The Cathedral has returning guards Julian Webb, Kamari James and Anthony Coke as well as forward Wesley Odiase. St. Joseph could have two of the Catholic Central League’s top scorers with guards Nathan Robertson and Darius Peterson.

The Cape Cod Academy has one of the state’s top scorers with senior guard Jaeden Greenleaf, who starts the season with 1787 points. Kelvin Danforth and Thomas Bresette are back on the field with guards Tamar Washington and Trey Merritt.

The landscape of Division 5 is dominated mainly by schools in central and western Mass. Cristo Rey and Millis are a few teams that could fight against a larger competition but could be tested in tournament play. Cristo Rey will look to guard Kion Carruthers and Alfredo De Los Santos, while striker Matthew Fiala is expected to lead the way for Millis.

Mystic Valley will rely on the guard trio of Michael Tayag, Giovanni Soto and Dalton Kinnon, while Holbrook and Hull could emerge as contenders.
