The DeLaSalle Islanders.  The State Tournament Constant.  The program has went to state ten years in a row.

Key Wins in 20-21 (15-6):   St. Croix Lutheran, AHA, Cooper, Mpls South, Richfield, Waconia, Mound-Westonka, Hibbing

Oops: Columbia Heights, Richfield, AHA, Mpls North, Minnehaha Academy

Moving On:  Cade Haskins Cade Haskins 6'6" | SF DeLaSalle | 2021 State MN was the main Islander piece last year and he is now at Dartmouth.  Haskins gave the team size, shooting, and the main scoring option.  Also gone is Evan Boyd Evan Boyd 6'2" | SG DeLaSalle | 2021 State MN , a scoring guard that really improved his level of play scoring 14 a game.  Defensive stopper Keijuan White Keijuan White 6'0" | SG DeLaSalle | 2021 State MN is also graduated as is Tarik Lyob who gave the team some size.  Malik Eason also played off the bench last year and he’s graduated. 

Returning Starters (2):    The Islanders used a different starting five in most games I watched or reviewed last year so the returning starter count varies.  Senior Amir Everett Amir Everett 6'0" | PG De La Salle | 2022 State MN and junior Nasir Whitlock Nasir Whitlock 6'1" | PG DeLaSalle | 2023 State MN started all the games I looked at last winter.  Everett was a defensive stopper that also scored three times a game.  This summer Everett played with a few different teams and has a better knack for scoring the ball
