EDITOR’S NOTE: In his new column “Recreation on the Record,” Director of Club Sports, Intramurals and Recreation Stephen Angelo has assembled a list of the top players from the 2011-2012 season. These student-athletes have demonstrated exceptional ability throughout the regular season and in Wheaton’s annual 3 on 3 Intramural Basketball Championship.
-Alex Cilley ’14
POINT GUARD: David Katz ’12: A premier ball-handler who can score from anywhere on the court, Katz is able to hit open shots from three-point range but he is at his best when taking the ball to the basket. Along with being an offensive playmaker, Katz’s ability to set teammates up for easy baskets is what sets him above some of the other guards in the league.
SHOOTING GUARD: Kevin Dawson ’13: An explosive playmaker who led the league in scoring in 2011, Dawson’s electric first step off the dribble is almost impossible to cover one-on-one and opens up several easy scoring opportunities. From three pointers to reverse layups, there is not a shot Dawson is incapable of executing at a high level.
SMALL FORWARD: Ian Stauder ’13: Stauder is high energy player who has a true passion for the game. He always seems to be in the right place at the right time for his team, picking up offensive rebounds and steals in key situations. A tenacious defender who will never be out-hustled to a loose ball, Stauder does whatever it takes to win.
POWER FORWARD: Eric Jensen ’13: Jensen is an all-around athlete with no weakness to his game. The forward has the ability to score from inside and outside and rarely misses a rebounding opportunity. Known as a big-game player, Jensen saved his best performance of 2011 for the championship game as he scored a game-high 12 points, helping Team Tad Skelley to claim Wheaton’s 3 on 3 Intramural Basketball title.
CENTER: Billy Colasante ’12: An offensive force who uses his strength and impressive offensive skillset to create mismatches all over the court, Colasante has a deadly 15-foot jumper but makes his biggest impact in the paint. Unstoppable near the basket due to his wide array of low-post moves, Colasante demands double teams on almost every play.
All-Wheaton Second Team:
Point Guard: Hal Landers ’12
Shooting Guard: Calou Beckford ’13
Small Forward: Drew Bernard ’12
Power Forward: Shawn Wise ’13
Center: Craig Brand ’13
