Lee County’s only main-bracket entry dressed 12 juniors a year ago – including its top six scorers – and won 18 of 22 games down the stretch before its playoff exit. The reward? Mariner’s first City of Palms Classic berth in 25 years. Coach Ryan Hercek, a deadly shooter on those Teddy Dupay-powered teams of the mid-1990s, employs a similarly free-wheeling attack featuring 6-1 SR Marcus Kelley, Jr. (14.4 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 4.5 apg), 6-0 SR Justin Lewis (14.4 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 4.7 apg), 6-2 SR Kelvin Jimenez (11.6 ppg, 6.9 rpg), 6-7 SR Asher Hercek (8.4 ppg, 55 threes), 5-11 SR Tristin Quiones (5.9 ppg) and 6-1 SR Noah Tolbert (4.5 ppg, 5.6 rpg), who combined for 172 three-pointers. … Jimenez and Kelley scored 20 and 17 points, respectively, in the Tritons’ 61-47 win over Port Charlotte in the Class 5A-District 11 championship game.
