St. Francis Prep 2020-21 Season Preview
After winning the Brooklyn-Queens Catholic High School Athletic Association Class AA Championship last season, St. Francis Prep returns four starters and seven total players who played key roles for them. The backcourt of Todd Rochelle (’21) and Latiek Briscoe (’22) return after being selected to the All City Third Team. Juniors Chance Morrish, Key’Sean Maynard, Jaden Daughtry and Jonathan Medley also return to a team who won 18 overall games last season. Newcomers Marco Battaglia (’22) and Joshua Pascarelli (’23) will give the Terriers added depth.
Todd Rochelle (2021) 6’2 guard - The lefty guard is the Terriers’ quarterback who provides leadership and a veteran presence to a young squad. Returning for his third Varsity season, Rochelle has improved his body in the offseason and defends at a high level. D1 and D2 programs showing interest.
Latiek Briscoe (2022) 6’2 guard - Briscoe welcomed himself to the CHSAA last year with several game-winning shots and highlight dunks. The Terriers’ top scorer (15ppg) from a season ago will look to take it up a notch this winter. D1 programs showing interest.
Jaden Daughtry (2022) 6’7 wing - After missing his freshman season with an injury, Daughtry’s first experience with high school basketball came on the Varsity level as a sophomore last year. Coach Jimmy Lynch feels that Daughtry’s junior season might be the one that puts him on the map. He is a lefty shooter, long, athletic has the most potential of any prospect in the Terriers program.
Jonathan Medley (2022) 6’4 wing - The last ten games of his sophomore season were when Medley was at his best along with a terrific all around performance in the BQ Championship game. He is a stat stuffer with 12 double-doubles last season (points and rebounds). Coach Lynch feels that Medley should be in the conversation for the All City team at season’s end.
Chance Morrish (2022), 6’1 guard - Morrish is another lefty guard who can really shoot the 3. Lynch says Morrish will take on an expanded role this season. His IQ and winning-at-all-costs attitude make him a valuable asset in a deep Terriers backcourt.
Key’Sean Maynard (2022) 6’2 guard - After transferring into St. Francis a year ago, Maynard should see plenty of time at the point this season. He has the body and IQ to be a high level guard. He gets to the rim and finishes in traffic.
Jeremy Montrose (2021) 6’2 guard - After not seeing major minutes last season, Montrose can make an impact on this year’s team. He is a high academic prospect who is extremely coachable.
Marco Battaglia (2022) 6’3 guard - Battaglia will be playing in his first Varsity season and will be an outside shooting threat.
Joshua Pascarelli (2023) 6’2 guard - After a season on the Freshman team and averaging over 20ppg., Pascarelli looks to make his mark on the Varsity level.
