Sharks At A Glance

As long as 6-10 SR Vernon Carey, Jr. and 6-7 JR Scottie Barnes are wearing U-School uniforms, the Sharks could become only the third team since 1985 to repeat as City of Palms champions. Arguably the No. 1 players in their classes nationally, they ignited a historic Class 5A state-title run – the 75-point margin of victory in two Finals games was a record – and earned a national No. 2 ranking and runner-up finish at the GEICO Nationals in New York. Longtime Rutgers and Rhode Island assistant Jim Carr replaces Adrian Sosa, Jr. (103-45 in seven years) as head coach. He’ll need contributions from 6-1 SR Logan Alters, 6-6 JR Jace Howard, 6-1 JR David Perez-Miralles and highly-touted 6-3 FR Jett Howard.
