Boys’ players to watch

Rodney Beldo, Scituate: A two-time Globe All-Scholastic, the 5-foot-10 guard averaged 22 points per game as a junior and has already surpassed 1,000 career points.

Ryan Chambers, Abington: In the Green Wave’s run to the EMass Division 3 final, the 6-foot senior guard averaged 18 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2.5 steals.

Dennis Clifford, Bridgewater-Raynham: The 6-foot-10 center averaged a double-double (16 points, 14 rebounds) as a junior and was the Old Colony MVP.

Saleek Marshall, Avon: The 6-foot sophomore guard pumped in 23 points per game as a freshman and is already a team captain.

Jordan Rezendes, Wareham: The 6-2 senior floor leader paced the Vikings in scoring (16 points per game) and assists (6.0 per game) in their run to the South Coast title.

Boys’ teams to watch

Abington: Former assistant Chris Beatrice takes over on the bench for Don Byron (now at Oliver Ames) for the defending Division 3 South champs.

Brockton: Forward Louis Montes has graduated, but the Boxers have plenty back from last year’s 23-1 squad that fell to Lynn English in OT in the EMass Division 1 final.

Milton: The reigning Division 2 state champs have a tough act to follow after last year’s 21-4 finish and an 81-44 dismantling of Hoosac Valley in championship game.

Scituate: The Clippers are 63-10 the last three seasons, and junior point Sam Malone and senior shooter Rodney Beldo are reunited in the backcourt.

Wareham: The Vikings, 22-2 a year ago, have ripped off 45 consecutive wins in the South Coast Conference.
