Portland Boys Basketball
Tanner Hyland of South Portland finds room to shoot between Justin Zukowski, left, and Cosimo Donato of Portland during their Western Class A semifinal.
|Coach: Joe Russo, 23rd year
Last year: 14-5, lost in Western Class A quarterfinals
Returning starters: 3
Impact players: Nate Smart, sr., F; Nick Volger, sr., G; Steve Angelo,
sr., G; Cosmo Donato, sr., C; Justin Zukowski, jr., G; Jayvon
Pitts-Young, jr., F; Matt Talbot, jr.; C, Dan Kane, jr., G
Outlook: The Bulldogs have a lot of talent and figure to be a title
contender. Zukowski was named to the All-SMAA third team last season. He
averaged 10.5 points and was sixth in the league in steals and tied for
seventh in 3-pointers. Volger and Pitts-Young are veteran players who
are keys to the season. Pitts-Young is capable of scoring 20 points in
any game. Talbot, Smart and Donato are the teamís big men and will have
to rebound and score inside.
