Head coach Nick Defeo once again has pulled in some of the top talent that graduated from CIAC programs and is giving them that critical extra year of deveolpment and exposure. Below is the 2020-21 line-up:
#0 Moustapha Biao - 6’4” Forward, 2021 (New Haven, CT) - Moustapha is a long forward who holds a 6’9” wingspan. He uses his wingspan to be effective defensively on the perimeter and in the paint while rebounding well for his size. Offensively, his game ranges out to the three point line and is becoming a consistent shooter.
#1 Justin Davis - 5’10” Point Guard, 2021 (Waterbury, CT) - Justin Davis is a scholarship point guard who holds all of the intangibles a college player needs.

His early performance for ND Prep included 43 points on 9 three pointers.
#30 Jonathan Edwards - 6’3” Point Guard, 2021 (Waterbury, CT) - Jon Jon Edwards is a powerful point guard with great size for his position. He scores in the paint over his defender with a 6’5” wingspan and is lethal in the open floor. Although he is explosive and gets well above the rim, his best asset may be his vision and ability to get others involved within the halfcourt.
#5 Tim Greene - 6’1” Shooting Guard, 2021 (Harlem, NY) - Tim Greene is another explosive guard in ND’s backcourt and uses his athleticism to his advantage. A powerful two-foot jumper, he shows off his bounce well in the open floor. Tim is becoming a knockdown shooter from three and also has a tremendous pull-up jumper. Tenacious defender who can guard for the full 30 seconds.
