2019-20 St. Edmund Prep High School Season Preview
St. Edmund Prep will begin its 24th season of varsity basketball with high hopes. There are 11 returning players and 4 returning starters. The Eagles have reached the City Championship 4 times 1999, 2001, 2003, and 2012 winning in 1999 and 2003. The Eagles graduated three seniors from last season.
In the backcourt, Shemar Latty and Cameron Shields return for a third year. Shemar is the floor general and averaged 19.6 points per game last season and made All Division. He possesses excellent speed and quickness. Next to him is combo guard Cam Shields. Cam averaged 10.1 points per game and is one of the best 2 way guards in the division. Also, vying for minutes should be senior James Wilson. Transfer Malik Cole should play quality minutes and add some pop off the bench.
On the wing, the Eagles return All Division player Sean Edwards and Chris Wiggan. Also returning are seniors Seth Rosado, P.J. Metayer, and Arden Saintelus. Colin Arroyo has been promoted from the JV and may see some time.
In the frontcourt, the Eagles return junior Kyle Dunn. Kyle can rebound, run and defend. Also, returning are seniors Tristan Gershovich and Hansley Moreau. Gershovich could be an X-factor.
Latty has already surpassed 1000 points in his career and has received interest from a number of Division 1 and 3 programs. Shields, Edwards, Cole and Wiggan are also All League candidates.
Per head coach Dan Wiatre, St. Edmund Prep is very proud to once again be competing in the Msgr. King Tournament. The Eagles won the Tournament in 1998, placed 2nd in 1999, and placed 3rd in 2014.
