St. Joseph by the Sea on Staten Island is a young team that will look to break through this season. A missed season last year will make this team hungry and some will be anxious to start their varsity careers. The summer events we saw them compete in, showed their promise.
Kendall Arcuri. 6”3. 2022
Crafty lefty can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. Also can get to the basket and score. A long tough defender who seems to know where the ball is. Working on improving finishing with his off-hand.
Danny Marinaccio. 6”0 2022
Has deep range but is also very capable with his mid-range jumper. Has good elevation and rotation out of his hand. Improving on his handle in the open floor.
John Molloy. 6”4 2022
A physical hard-nosed player. Does the dirty work. Knows how to use his body to gain position and score around the rim. Working on his defensive footwork.
Dorian Paki. 6”6 2022
He impressed me in the games I saw him play. Has a long wingspan. The ability to alter shots. Very active on both boards. Quick leaper. Can score inside of 12 feet and is very good at cleaning up misses. Working on expanding his range.
Christian Zanone. 6”1 2022
High energy point guard. Very good in transition, either finding the open man or finishing himself. Outstanding team defender who understands defensive positioning. Looking to expand his range.
Xavier Barrow. 5”10 2023
Very skilled point guard. Excellent court vision. Has uncanny awareness for such a young guard. He is outstanding in the open floor or in half court sets. Uses his skill set to score in a few different ways around the basket. Very capable of hitting the three. A player who looks very confident with the ball in his hands at the end of games. A player to watch as he gains more experience. Looking to add strength.
Anthony Graziano. 6”6. 2023
Very impressive post player. Plays a physical game. Has great hands, catching the ball in traffic. Very capable of putting the ball on the floor. His footwork is well beyond his years. He showed jump hooks, up and under, and also 12- 15 feet was well within his range. Working on expanding that range to stretch the floor. Against some top talent this spring and summer Anthony looked like a special player.
Laurent Kingue. 6”4. 2023
A little raw right now. Has the potential to be one of the surprise players in this coming season. Just seems to find the ball on both ends, scores his points with hard work, and cleaning up misses. Working on improving his handle and perimeter shooting to put pressure on how teams defend him.
