Derek Liddle – Argyle
Derek Liddle is continuing Argyle’s winning tradition. Just how dangerous are the Scots this year? They just took down Lake George with the Adirondack League title on the line, securing the regular-season championship with one less loss than their rivals (17-3). Liddle is the best player on the best team, with a handful of 20 point games this season while doing all the dirty work.
Liddle is averaging over 13 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2.5 blocks. His productivity combined with teammate Justin McWhorter might be enough to see Argyle continue their winning ways into the end of the month and beyond.
Sean Evans – North Warren
Junior Sean Evans has worked hard this season to will his North Warren team into relevance among the Adirondack league regulars. He averages over 17 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals while scoring from all distances. The Junior guard is his team’s motor, and he will look to continue his scoring production as 3rd seeded North Warren awaits the winner of Hartford and Fort Edward.
Raymond Harrington – Hartford
Junior Raymond Harrington might be the most well-rounded player in Class D. At above 6’, the junior is averaging 18 points, 3 assists, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals. The Tanagers are .500, which is good enough to earn them the 6 seed in Class D. They have some nice wins, but Harrington and crew will be looking at taking care of Fort Edward in round 1 and finding their revenge against North Warren in round 2.
Daniel VanNostrand – Northville
VanNostrand and Northville are the WAC representatives alongside OESJ in this year’s Class D tournament. They have had some really good moments, in large part to teammates VanNostrand and Jacob Frank. VanNostrand checks in at about 6’4” and averages 19 points to go along with a team-leading number of rebounds. Northville takes the 2nd seed in this year’s Class D tournament, and may just have enough star power to defy the odds and take the title.
