Stepinac takes a 3-0 lead over Iona Prep in this challenge series. These were the players who caught our eye.

Samuel Gibbs Samuel Gibbs 6'2" | PG Stepinac | 2022 State NY .    Stepinac

Usually don’t like to write up the same player for every game he plays in. But, when he’s exceptional you have to. Samuel has been spectacular. Not flashy, but extremely efficient. In-game 3 he shot 3-3 from beyond the arc. He not only scores but he gets his teammates involved. He had 4 assists but if this was hockey he would have had 9, many times his pass set up the offense to eventually lead to the bucket. Looking very poised and comfortable with the ball in his hand. Ivy schools have checked in on Samuel this would be a perfect fit for this player.

Joel Baez Joel Baez 6'4" | SG Stepinac | 2022 State NY           Stepinac

He has been consistent in all three games so far. In game 1,he showed his scoring prowess. In game 2,he made winning plays.  He is a very efficient player. Does all the little things in big ways. Can score it shoot it and a good handle. Good things happen when he is on the floor. MAAC and Patriot leagues
