With such a large conference, covering teams in multiple counties, the NJAC needs multiple posts to cover its top returning talent. Let’s look at another handful of players from the Northwestern quadrant of New Jersey today.
Anthony Kali | 5’10” | G | Lenape Valley 2024
Kali is a hustling guard showed maturity on the floor as a sophomore. He’s very dangerous from deep and is at his best when he can catch and shoot on the wing. He had 19 vs Belvidere and 17 vs North Warren.
Mike Zoellner | 6’0” | G | Kittatinny
Zoellner is a smart backcourt leader who can facilitate, shoot from deep but also pull up in the mid range well. He can finish through traffic against bigger players using his crafty footwork. Kittatinny loses most of its offense, so his numbers will go up as a senior leader. He had 22 vs New Milford, 26 vs Dover and 21 vs Hopatcong.
Mike Ewing| 6’5” | F | Mendham
Ewing is a long, well built and athletic forward. He runs the floor well for a bigger player, can hit shots from deep and utilizes good footwork to finish strong around the rim. He’s a tough defender in the post who uses his length to alter and block shots. He had a double-double vs Hunterdon Central and also had 15 vs Randolph. He’ll be one of the keys to the success of the Mendham program this winter.
Solid guard who is a smooth shooter with good ballhandling skills. He has a well rounded game on both ends of the floor and will be the leader of the Randolph program the next two years. He burst on the scene as a sophomore. He had 22 vs Pope John, 21 vs Sparta and 19 vs Mendham as his top games last winter.
One of the top players in the NJAC, Leskauskas can handle the ball as a bigger guard but also is a lethal shooter who can light it up from beyond the arc and get hot in a hurry. He’s at his best attacking the rim through contact as a slasher but his all around offensive game is solid. His top games as a junior were vs Union Catholic(27), Hillsborough(25) and Mendham(24).
A backcourt leader and and faciliator. Adept ballhandler who can get to the rim through defenders and draw contact. He’s a tough player defensively as well. He has a high work rate on both ends of the court. He had 25 vs Immaculate Conception and 22 vs Sparta as top games as a junior. He’ll flirt with 1,000 points in his senior year.
