Tigers At A Glance

The Pompano Beach powerhouse has won four state titles over the past six seasons under coach Melvin Randall, the state’s all-time winningest with nine (seven at Ely). The arrival of 6-3 SR transfer point guard Steve Laurent from Tallahassee Godby could signal a return to prominence for the Tigers, who also bring back a pair of promising talents in 6-0 JR Colby King (10.5 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 3.9 apg) and 6-5 JR Derrick Lovett (10.5 ppg, 7.1 rpg).
