City of Basketball Love:

First Team

*Tony Carr (Sr./Roman Catholic)
The 2016 CoBL High School Player of the Year, Carr capped a terrific three-year run at Roman with his second consecutive Catholic League, District 12 and PIAA Class AAAA state title, going out with one of the more impressive legacies at a school known for its hoops tradition.

A 6-foot-4 point guard, Carr averaged 14.8 ppg, 6.0 rpg and 5.5 apg for the Cahillites, who went 79-11 over the last three seasons with him at the helm. A true “big game” point guard, Carr certainly seemed to step up when the stage called for it, playing some of his best ball on the courts at the Palestra, Hagan Arena and Hershey’s GIANT Center.

This fall, along with two of his Roman teammates, he’ll be headed up to Penn State to play for Pat Chambers, where he’ll be counted on to help build up a Nittany Lions program that’s never been considered a hoops powerhouse but has its eye on getting there….

Lamar Stevens (Sr./Roman Catholic)
Since transferring from the Haverford School to spend his senior season with best friend Carr and the state-champion Cahillites, the Penn State commit took the Catholic League by storm in his lone season at Roman. Averaging 15 ppg this year, the 6-7 Stevens showed off outstanding highlight-reel athleticism in helping his team defend its title, sealing the win with several major throw-downs in the fourth quarter. A powerful, athletic wing, Stevens looks like he’s ready for the rigors of the Big Ten….

Fifth Team

Nazeer Bostick (Sr./Roman Catholic)
”The Horse” helped Roman to back-to-back state titles, averaging 11.6 ppg for the season but 13.5 ppg during the playoffs. Penn State-bound 6-4 wing is a tenacious rebounder and defender….

No. 23 to you and me

Tim Frazier’s performance at point guard earned him deal with Pelicans for rest of season

NBA.com:

“He’s done a great job. He’s a real smart player, knows the game,” said Pelicans forward Luke Babbitt, calling to mind Frazier’s college resume. “He’s had some experience in Portland and been in the D-League, so it’s not like he’s a rookie. He’s fit right in and that’s a credit to him, being prepared and staying ready. He’s a pure point guard. He knows when to probe and when to look for his own shot, because we need that too right now.”

“He works,” said wing Alonzo Gee, who also once played in the D-League. “He’s determined to be here, always working on his game, always in the gym.”

Frazier said his approach comes partly from his mother, who emphasized education to him at an early age. Penn State’s academic reputation appealed to Frazier; he has a degree from the school in communications arts and sciences, as well as a diploma in supply chain and information systems.

“My mom didn’t play,” Frazier said of his upbringing. “She always put academics first, so that was one of the biggest things I looked at in choosing a college. I always wanted to make my mom proud, getting my degrees.”

In terms of the off-court recognition he earned from the Big Ten as a senior, Frazier also credits his family background.

“You want to be a great guy on and off the court. That’s the way I was raised, to build as many relationships as possible,” he said. “Going to Penn State on a full ride and getting your degree, people look up to you every day, even when you don’t realize it. So you always want to be on your best behavior and do the right things – and the right things will come to you.”

Philadelphia Inquirer:

PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Tony Carr, guard, Roman Catholic

Penn State coach Pat Chambers smartly focused on landing the senior floor general and made regular trips from State College to Broad and Vine.

Carr is a terrific ball handler and penetrator, an excellent distributor in transition and halfcourt sets, and a clutch performer in pressure situations.

The 6-foot-4 dynamo averaged 14.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 2.1 steals while leading the Cahillites to a 27-4 mark and their second straight PIAA Class 4A state title….

Philadelphia Daily News:

ON THE grandest stages in the area, Lamar Stevens was flat-out dominant for Roman Catholic this season.

The 6-7 senior forward and Penn State signee possesses a combination of speed, athleticism and power that helped the Cahillites repeat a threepeat, again claiming PIAA Class AAAA gold along with the AAAA city title and the coveted Catholic League championship.

In those three contests, Stevens, who transferred in this season from the Haverford School, averaged 20 points, 9.6 rebounds and shot 55 percent (22-for-40) from the field.

That’s part of why Stevens, in conjunction with the Daily News All-City team, is our Player of the Year….
