The strength of the program is players such as Maurice Barrow, hard-working and all business on the hardwood.
Barrow, who competed in the local Jordan Brand All Star game held at Madison Square Garden in New York City over the weekend, produced 10 points on four of six shooting from the floor.
"It was a great experience to play at the Garden," he said. "A lot of fun. It was an honor to be selected to the game."
Barrow has decided to play division one collage basketball at Fairfield, a program that is on the rise. The coaching staff has done a very skilled job in recruiting the tri-state area too.
"I had a great visit there, I liked the coaches and I like the goals everyone has," said Barrow after the game.
"My goals are clear -- win a conference championship, get to the (NCAA) tournament, and become a better basketball player."
Barrow, 6-foot-5 and 210-pounds, plays physical near the rim, lands second and third attempts at the basket with his desire.
"I'm going to work on all parts of my shooting before I get to college," he said. "I want to improve my ballhandling, my shooting, my speed."
