Here’s a look at Glory Days Magazine’s Boys Basketball All-Stars for the 2019-2020 season:
Taj Thweatt, F, Wildwood Catholic: Glory Days Magazine Player of the Year.
Jahlil White, F, Wildwood Catholic: A dynamic player who has committed to Temple, White was one of the most dominant players in the Cape-Atlantic League, along with Thweatt. He averaged better than 16 points per game and led the league in steals with 74 for a team that went 24-7 and won the league title.
Jacob Hopping, G, Wildwood Catholic: Hopping was much more than just a prolific 3-point shooter, as he played outstanding defense while leading the league with 121 assists.
DaSean Lopez, G/F, Wildwood Catholic: Anonther dynamic athlete in the Crusaders’ lineup, Lopez provided all kinds of matchup problems on the wing for opposing defenses, and was a solid defender himself.
Martin Anguelov, G, Wildwood Catholic: A smooth shooter from the perimeter, he was third in the league in threes, led the league in 3-point percentage, and finished this season with more than 1,000 career points.
Carlos Lopez, G, Egg Harbor Township: A sophomore transfer from Williamstown, Lopez showed a glimpse of what he’s capable of by averaging 15 ppg and leading the Eagles to the sectional championship game. He also made 71 threes, second in the league.
Isaih Walsh, F, Egg Harbor Township: Walsh was the senior leader the Eagles needed to make a late-season run to the South Jersey Group 4 semifinals. In the semis, he scored 23 points in a double-overtime loss against Cherry Hill East.
Yamere Diggs, G, Vineland: Diggs is one of the toughest guards in the league to contain, as evidenced by his 17 ppg average for the Fighting Clan.
James Waugh and Nurridin Abdul-Rahmann, G, ACIT: This dynamic duo led a RedHawks team that set a program record with 21 wins, and each finished with more than 1,000 career points. Abdul-Rahmann was the third-leading scorer in the league, averaging more than 20 ppg.
Gannon Brady, G, Ocean City: Brady is known more for his talents on the baseball field, but he proved he’s one heck of a basketball player, too, leading the CAL in scoring at 21.9 ppg and helping the Red Raiders to 17 wins.
Elijah Jones, F, Pleasantville: Jones really came of age this year and was much more confident in the paint. He was second in the league in scoring at 20.5 ppg.
Marquise McLoughlin, G, Pleasantville: McLoughlin was an outstanding outside shooter who averaged 14 ppg, but the senior brought much more to the table, including consistent rebounding and defense.
Marcus Pierce, G, St. Joseph: Pierce poured in 20 points per game for a Wildcats team that went 22-6 and finished just a game behind Wildwood Catholic in the CAL United Conference.
Daniel Skillings, G, St. Joseph: Skillings was another talented scorer for the Wildcats, as he averaged better than 18 ppg and also was in the top 10 in the league in threes and rebounds.
Stephen Byard, F, Atlantic City: After a solid junior year, Byard really shined this winter as the Vikings’ leader on the court. He was third in the league in rebounding while averaging 16 ppg, and led the Vikings to a South Jersey Group 4 championship.
Najee Coursey, G, Cedar Creek: Coursey could go for 20+ points on any given night, and often did, as he averaged 19.5 ppg for a Pirates team that won 14 games.
Jake Cook, F, Mainland Regional: He emerged as a Division I football recruit this past fall and followed that up with an outstanding winter, averaging better than 17 ppg before his season was cut short with a knee injury just before the state playoffs.
Luke Mazur, G, Mainland Regional: The senior was the top sharp shooter in the league, finishing with 82 threes while averaging nearly 15 ppg and leading Mainland into the sectional semifinals.
Elmarko Jackson, G, St. Augustine Prep: Jackson no doubt will vie for Player of the Year status next year. Just a sophomore, he averaged better than 13 ppg for a Prep team that went 24-5.
Matt Delaney, F, St. Augustine Prep: He has an abundance of skills for a big man and might be the best post passer in the league, as he finished with 90 assists while also averaging better than 14 ppg for the Hermits, who made it to the CAL Tournament championship game.
Christian Kalinowski, G, Holy Spirit: The Spartans’ most consistent scorer, Kalinowski averaged nearly 12 ppg and led Holy Spirit to a 17-10 record.
Joe Glenn, F, Holy Spirit: Glenn came a long way since his freshman year, and as a senior was one of the most reliable big men in the league. He was second in the league in blocked shots with 55 and third in the league in free-throw percentage.
