Trigonis Loading Up On Talent
The newest edition of the Belmont Shore program should be a good one. With a talented roster and stops at some of the most competitive AAU events of the year, Dinos Trigonis' bunch should be fun to watch and a major draw for college recruiters.
Highlighting the group will be Westchester forward Trevor Ariza. One of the most highly-sought after prospects in the country, Ariza's current college list reads like a "Who's Who" of college basketball programs including Florida, Duke, North Carolina, Louisville, Indiana, Kansas, Syracuse, Maryland, UCLA, Kentucky, Memphis and UConn. Ariza's father played for Florida.
Redondo Union swingman Wendell White will be a starter at the wing forward position. Forward Harrison Schaen is one of the top student-athletes on the west coast and boasts an SAT of over 1,200.
Wesley Washington of Mater Dei will play a significant role in the backcourt. Washington scored 25 points in a shocking upset of Oak Hill Academy and this junior is a keeper.
Trigonis has plenty of talented young kids as well. Freshman forward Jamaal Boykin will be a fixture at some major camps this summer. Curtis Allen, a sophomore, will also see time at both guard spots.
Jordan Wilkes is the youngest son of former NBA great Jamaal Wilkes; he's just a freshman. Wilkes is 6-9.
Trigonis' team will play in the Rockfish Summer League, Las Vegas Desert Classic, adidas Texas Classic, Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions and the Big Time to name just a few of the stops. Here's a look at the roster:
