Miami Christian (28‑2)
Florida Class 2A State Champion
- 6-2 SR Neftali Alvarez
Victors At A Glance
Miami Christian proved to be the FHSAA’s best team regardless of class in head coach Juan Cardona’s first season, knocking off eventual Class 7A state champ Fort Lauderdale Dillard 69-67 in the HoopHall Miami Classic at American Airlines Arena, then rolling through five playoff games by an average margin of 30 points before surviving Melbourne Florida Prep 51-48 in the state-title game. Powered by 6-2 SR Neftali Alvarez and a stable-full of guards, the Victors are well-equipped to contend for top honors again this season.
