St Marks set for another campaign
- Heading into last spring, it looked like St Marks would return a fearsome starting five of Kevin Zabo at the one, Nick Stauskas the 2, Alex Murphy at the 3, Jarred Reuter at the 4 and Kaleb Tarczewski in the middle. But as we all know, circumstances change quickly in the world today. First, Alex Murphy announced he would reverse reclassify back to the class of 2011 and head to Duke this year. Then, early in the summer, word broke that Kevin Zabo was transferring to Montrose Christian in Maryland. Then, later in the summer, it was announced that Jarred Reuter was departing for Tabor Academy.
- Despite the losses of these three high-level players, St Marks still has a dangerous roster which makes it one the top Class AA teams in New England heading into the season. When you talk about this Lions club, everything begins with one of the best duos in New England in the inside-outside combo of Arizona-commit Kaleb Tarczewski and Michigan-commit Nick Stauskas. Tarczewski is one of the top centers in America and the nation's #7 ranked player on ESPN. He's a legitimate moving-mountain-type center who changes games with his tyrannical presence in the lane. Stauskas is an athletic, versatile back-court player with good size at 6'5 and the ability to play on the wing or handle from the point...On the wing opposite Stauskas will be Holy Cross-bound Arizona native Eric Green, a long, athletic senior guard with a reputation as a lock-down ball defender...At the point for St Marks, Georgetown, Mass-native Jaymie Spears '12 will get a chance to show what he can do behind-the-wheel of a high-level ship...Next to Tarczewski down-low will be 6'7 freshman forward Aaron Falzon, a talented son of Newton, Mass who will stretch the floor with his smooth shooting-stroke...The sixth-man for this club could likely be Eli Lubick, a high IQ wing who facilitates and can shoot the ball...Providing the depth down-low will another freshman in Hudson, Mass-native Aaron McLean, an athletic 6'5 forward with long arms, a great motor, and a high upside...By the end of the month, we should know what other wildcards will be in the mix for St Marks this winter.
