Player, School, Height, Pos., Year: Comment
Will Antrum, Wilbur Cross, 6-0, G, Sr.: Can shoot it from deep and can get to the rim. Governors need him night in, night out.
Jackson Benigni, Xavier, 6-0, G, Jr.: Averaged 20.9 ppg. for the Falcons last season. Clearly the go-to guy.
Tyler Bourne, Notre Dame-Fairfield, 5-8, G, Sr.: Probably the quickest player from end to end in the entire state.
Mikey Buscetto, Waterford, 5-10, G, Sr.: Best player in the ECC? Buscetto makes the Lancers go.
Contavio Dutreil, Trinity Catholic, 6-6, F, Sr.: Most imposing presence in the entire FCIAC.
Sean Conway, Fairfield Warde, 6-4, G, Sr.: Sharpshooter is one of the holdovers from a team ranked in the top 10 for a good portion of last season.
Noreaga Davis, Notre Dame-Fairfield, 6-4, F, Sr.: Post player an integral part of the SWC’s top team.
Maximus Edwards, Bunnell, 6-3, G, So.: One of the state’s top underclassmen, the Bulldogs now become his team with the graduation of Zhyaire Fernandes.
Isiah Gaiter, Sacred Heart, 6-3, F, Sr: Provided a big lift in last year’s postseason when Raheem Solomon was out due to a knee injury.
George Gamble, Windsor, 6-1, G, Sr.: Another in a long line of productive players in Ken Smith’s suffocating, full-court defense.
Delshawn Jackson, Prince Tech, 5-10, G, Sr.: Best player returning in the newly-formed CTC.
Brett LeQuire, North Branford, 6-1, G, Sr.: Reigning co-Shoreline Conference Player of the Year looking to do even greater things.
Dimitry Moise, Trinity Catholic, 6-4, F, Sr.: Teams with Contavio to give the Crusaders a devastating 1-2 punch.
Dev Ostrowski, East Lyme, 6-1, G, Jr.: If Buscetto is No. 1 in the ECC, this kid is !-A.
Connor Raines, Notre Dame-West Haven, 6-5, G, Jr.: Becomes the go-to guy for the Green Knights.
Joe Reilly, East Catholic, 6-0, G, Jr.: Need to keep a constant eye on him on the perimeter.
Nyzair Rountree, Holy Cross, 6-3, F, Sr.: If the Crusaders are to supplant Sacred Heart as NVL champs, this player will need to be at his very best.
Raheem Solomon, Sacred Heart, 6-3, G, Sr.: Looks to be fully recovered from last season’s knee injury.
Josiah Steinman, West Haven, 5-10, G, Sr.: Can the Westies be a power to be reckoned with in the SCC? If so. Steinman leads the way.
Tyler Thomas, Amity, 6-3, G, Sr.: Best returning player in the SCC.
Matt Veretto, East Catholic, 6-7, C, Sr.: Versatile big man an important cog on quite possibly the state’s best team.
Davon Warner, Hillhouse, 5-9, G, Sr.: Spark plug off the bench last year for the Academics. Now will be counted on heavily with all of the of-season defections.
Mekhi Warren, Hillhouse, 6-5, F, Sr.: Only returning starter from the two-time Class LL state champs should be an automatic double-double.
Marquan Watson, Waterbury Career, 6-2, F, Jr. : Maybe the best player in the NVL you haven’t heard of.
Qualon Wilkes, Bassick, 5-9, G, Sr.: One of a long line of talented guards for the Lions.
