SUN SELECT All-Star Boys Basketball Team

First Team Boys Basketball

Jay Bergmann, Frontier, Jr. G
The smooth-shooting guard broke out in his second season with the varsity, averaging 18.4 points and 3.5 assists, while knocking down a team-leading 41 three-pointers. A traditional scorer, the junior can drive to the basket for points, pull up for a jumper and hit the long-range shots. Bergmann had eight games scoring more than 20 points and three games with more than 30. Frontier finished 8-12, including a first round playoff victory.

Phil Bowen, Iroquois, Sr. G
One of the premier guards in Western New York, the senior was called by his coach one of the catalysts to bringing boys basketball back to Iroquois. “We had standing room crowds the past three games. Everyone wants to come to watch Phil,” coach Sean Lauber said. He averaged 24 points, scoring 459 points to help the Chiefs share a ECIC II division title. Last season, he was the starting point guard on Iroquois’ sectional finalist team.

Colin Hart, Lake Shore, Sr. G
The go-to scorer for Lake Shore, the senior guard scored 356 points (17.8 average) and went over 30 points two times during the year. He made 57 threes this season to move himself into third place on the all-time single-season list. He’s a pure shooter who could hit a three from anywhere on the court, as the senior shot 40 percent from beyond the arc, during Lake Shore’s 7-13 season, in which the team defeated Riverside in the postseason.

Kordell Holness-Lightbody, St. Francis, Jr. G
In his first season with Saint Francis, the junior transfer from Canada became more and more the team’s go-to player, as the season went along. The junior guard averaged 17.8 points, scoring a team-leading 444 points, to go along with averaging 2.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.4 steals. He helped lead St. Francis to a 7-18 mark and a strong finish. The Red Raiders nearly pulled a Manhattan Cup quarterfinal upset at league finalist Timon.

Brad Palmerton, Eden, Sr. G
After finishing as one of Western New York’s top scorers, the senior guard followed that with another big season to finish as one of the Eden program’s best players in recent memory. While leading the team with a 17.4 scoring average — third in ECIC IV and 32nd in Section VI, he grew into more of the complete player, also becoming the team leader in assists and a defensive stalwart. He embraced the leadership role for 4-14 Eden.

Second Team Boys Basketball

Nick Clancy, West Seneca West, Sr. F
The senior led West Seneca West to a 7-12 record, including a title at the W.S. West Tournament, and was the team’s top scorer.

Brendan Cox, East Aurora, Sr. G
Despite missing the first part of the season, the senior captain still led East Aurora during a 9-10 season with 226 points. In 14 games, he averaged 16 points.

Nick Parucki, West Seneca East, Jr. F
Despite a 3-16 mark this season, the junior big man shined. He averaged 17.7 points, scoring a team-leading 337 points.

Brandon Pierce, Hamburg, Sr. F
Averaging nearly a double-double, the senior forward finished with a team-leading 13 points and 9.9 rebounds. His 207 rebounds was seventh-best in school history.

Griffin Ryan, Hamburg, Sr. F
The senior forward finishes as the third Hamburg player to have more than 450 points and 450 rebounds with 594/475. He averaged 11.2 points and 8.1 rebounds.

As a senior leader, who had his season cut short by injury, the senior averaged 10.6 points, while leading Lake Shore with 27 steals and 51 assists.

He guarded some of the top talent in the Monsignor Martin, while putting in 11.4 points and 4.4 rebounds.
