Despite a fourth place finish in the Greater Metro conference, Cerroni has led Hamilton (14-8) to the third round of the WIAA state tournament. In the first round against Waukesha North he went for 28 points, then he backed up that effort with a 23-point outing against against Arrowhead.
"We started off pretty good this season and then we hit a slump," Cerroni said. "We have six sophomores on varsity and four of them start, so we kind of hit a slump in the beginning. But the second round of the conference we really picked it up and we only lost one game since."
On the season Cerroni is averaging 27 points a game and has gone for over 40 on two occasions. To go with his high point total, he also gets five assists and five steals per contest.
"I think I've played pretty well," Cerroni said. "I guess I have more of a scoring this year because last year I was more of a point guard. We lost a lot of seniors last year, so I got pushed into a scoring role."
"We run a five out and no one in the post and I benefit from that because I come off screens and shot fake and get to the free throw line a lot."
Although just a sophomore, Cerroni has picked up interest from a host of schools. UW-Green Bay, UW-Milwaukee and Northern Illinois have made a strong impression on him early on. He's also heard from Drake, North Dakota State, Portland, Wisconsin, Marquette and Iowa.
While some recruits are making early decisions, Cerroni says it's too early to think about recruiting. At this point he's more worried about the state playoffs and getting ready for summer ball with the Wisconsin Playground Warriors.
"I'm really looking forward to the summer," he said. "It's going to be a lot of fun traveling around on the circuit and playing against the best."
