2023-24 Millbrook School Season Preview


The Millbrook School is a coeducational, college preparatory boarding school for students in grades 9-12. It’s 800-acre campus is located in Millbrook, NY. It’s varsity basketball program has been on a steady rise over the past decade since coach Billy Thom took the helm. They compete in the NEPSAC Class B (mid-sized schools) conference. This upcoming season will feature another deep pool of college prospect talent:

Mark Ostad (2024) 6’2, 185lb, guard - Creative, explosive, and looking to create for others in transition and the half-court. Ostad made major growth in his junior year campaign, shooting over 44% from 3FG and providing a spark for the Class B semi-finalists off the bench. Currently garnering UAA, NESCAC, Landmark, and Liberty League interest. Home run of an academic DIII guard!  3.7 gpa Video highlights

Nico Jorba (2024) 6’6, 195lb wing - Another extremely intriguing prospect. Long, active, and with a tremendous nose for the ball, Jorba is a coach’s dream. Learning how to score more consistently, Jorba will be expected to guard multiple positions for Millbrook next year, as well as be an offensive producer on multiple levels. Is able to shoot the ball out to the 3 point line; however, will need to develop consistency in that aspect of his game. The best is yet to come for this young man. 3.5 gpa

Isaac Friedman (2024) 6’4, 195lb wing - Coming off an injury is no easy task, yet Friedman has begun to jump leaps and bounds in his spring season. He will be completing a post-grad year with Millbrook, where he will be expected to use his length, IQ, and ability to knock down open shots as a key cog in the Mustangs’ rotation. Projects to be a NESCAC, UAA, Liberty League type player.  3.9 gpa

Chris Torres (2024) 6’1, 175lb guard - Torres comes from an incredibly well-coached program in Suffern, NY. Bringing IQ, feel for the game, and a deadly shooting stroke, he will be expected to play a leadership role for the Mustangs this year as they attempt to stay at the top of Class B. Torres will need to develop his body during his post grad year to be college ready; however, he has all the pieces to be a formidable DIII basketball player. Projects to be a NESCAC, UAA, Liberty League type player.  3.7 gpa

Zoumana Traore (2025) 6’7, 190 lbs wing - Has an older brother playing at DI St. John’s.  Tremendous upside as a scholarship basketball player. Potential future professional. Humble and hard-working.  Athlete who creates opportunities for scores and stops because of his activity, motor, and length. Grew physically and skill-wise in his freshman campaign before a knee injury. Sophomore year saw Traore approach the game with maturity and consistency. For Millbrook to stay in the upper echelon of Class B, he will need to produce as a leader for the Mustangs.  Plays AAU with the PSA Cardinals. 3.5 gpa

Amadou Fall (2025) 6’9, 195lb, forward - Son of a Senegalese hoops legend, Fall is still somewhat new to the organized game. He is long, agile for his size, and able to change the game on both ends of the floor. An above average rim-runner and rebounder for his age and size, Fall has a chance to play a major role for the Mustangs this year. He’s raw offensively, though the Millbrook coaching staff is excited about the exponential growth he’s shown over the summer playing for Riverside and Coach Kuba. 3.7 gpa

Andre Widmer (2025) 5’10, 150lb guard - Will be expected to compete for serious minutes as a junior for Millbrook. Quick with his hands and feet, a naturally gifted soccer player, as well. Has a technically pure stroke that has viewers always thinking it’s going in. Has developed a pit bull mentality on the defensive side of the ball, something that will set the tone for Millbrook’s full-court defense for the next two years. Best question-asker in practice on Millbrook’s roster. A sponge for learning and will continue to improve. 3.6 gpa

Chase Garcia (2025) 6’2, 180 lb, guard - Coming off a NY All State season for Tuckahoe High, Garcia will be looked upon to produce in all facets of the game, something the Millbrook coaching staff is confident he’ll be able to do. He brings a high level of IQ, work ethic, athleticism, and skill to the floor. Can create for others off the bounce and knock down jumpers as an off-guard. His versatility is what has the Millbrook staff most excited. 3.8 gpa

Peter Knapp (2025) 6’1, 175lb guard - Knapp is as solid of an academic D3 guard as comes around. High IQ, knock-down shooter, consummate teammate. Will be looked upon to be a leader for Millbrook next year on and off the court. Should garner interest from many D3 schools over the next year and a half. 3.8 gpa

Hezi McCoy (2026) 6’2, 185 lbs, guard - Also coming off an NY All State season, McCoy will be expected to carry a heavy load as a sophomore. Surprisingly bouncy, he models his game after the great playmakers of the NBA. High effort and intensity is a hallmark of his game, and it pays off as he makes his presence known on almost every possession. Always a blessing for a coach when his potential leading scorer is also the first dude to get on the floor for a loose ball or to take a charge! 3.5 gpa

Marcos Wiscovitch-Frontera (2026) 6’5, 185 lbs, guard - Coming into his second season at Millbrook, Wiscovitch-Frontera might be the X factor for the Mustangs this year. Long, quick, and quickly developing guard skills, he could add an offensive punch and a rebounding presence to Millbrook this year. Able to guard 1-4, Wiscovitch-Frontera will need to guard and match physically to be a solid addition to the Mustangs’ rotation. A future scholarship level player.
