Fighting Tarpons At A Glance

Coach Tom Massolio has turned tiny Punta Gorda into Southwest Florida’s “Capital of Basketball,” with 464 victories, 10 district championships and only two losing seasons during a 23-year span. This group of Tarpons might be among his finest ever, powered by Div. I talents 6-8 SR Tre Carroll (24.4 ppg, 9.6 rpg), a Florida Atlantic commit and the H-T Preps Player of the Year, and 6-5 SOPH John Gamble (13.5 ppg, 4.2 rpg) and a deep supporting cast that includes emerging 6-4 SOPH Tynan Becker, 6-7 SR Nnamdi Edeoga, 5-10 JR point guard Jordany Reyes-Sanchez, 5-10 JR D.J. Woods and 6-6 SR Audwin Johnson. The left-handed Carroll has offers from Santa Clara and most of Florida’s mid-majors (FGCU, Florida Atlantic, Stetson, et al), but saw an uptick in interest (Texas, Arkansas, Va. Tech, Ole Miss, Iowa State, Iona) after scoring a school-record 48 points against Fort Myers on Feb. 14.
