St.Edmund Prep 2020-21 Season Preview
St. Edmund Prep finished last season with a record of 21-6, won the Catholic High School Athletic Association Class A Division regular season title, and lost in the Intersectional tournament final. 10 seniors have graduated from that 2019-20 team, including league Player of the Year Shemar Latty (Post University CT), Cameron Shields (Nassau CC) and Sean Edwards (SUNY-Oswego).
This year marks the 25th season of Varsity Basketball at SEP and hopes are high. Coach Dan Wiatre returns six seniors and two starters. He also have some very talented players moving up to the varsity level.
Coach Wiatre’s projected lineup is:
G-Malik Cole (‘21), Luqman Ahmed (‘21)
G-Mitchell Wiggan (‘23), Justin Kirkland (‘21)
W-Anthony Bento (‘21), Jonathan Mendizabal (‘22)
W-Colin Arroyo (‘21), Jackson Cherubin (‘22)
F-Kyle Dunn (‘21), Brendan Armour (‘23)
St Edmund’s top college prospects:
Malik Cole (2021) 6’3 guard - Cole is a versatile returning starting guard. As a junior, he averaged 10ppg, 7rpg, and 3apg. Given his changing role within the team, Coach thinks Cole’s numbers should skyrocket. He holds an academic average of over 91 and plans to study engineering.
Kyle Dunn (2021) 6’2 small forward - Dunn is a three year starter. He is an excellent athlete that also plays centerfield on the baseball team. Wiatre thinks that Dunn should blossom into an All Division caliber player this season.
Mitchell Wiggan (2023) 6’3 guard - Wiggan is a long and talented scorer that should be a major contributor this season. He averaged 23ppg on the freshmen team last year.
Brendan Armour (2023) 6’6 small forward - Armour is a rebounding machine. He has the ability to play on the wing, high post, or inside. He’ll see major minutes this season.
Colin Arroyo (2021) 6’2 guard - Arroyo has improved greatly and should be able to provide some scoring inside and out as well as provide some rebounding. Coach Wiatre will also count on him to provide some leadership for the younger players.
