After jumping to the No. 1 spot for the first time this season, the Bullis boys had four players selected to the all-IAC team this week. Seniors Andre Walker, Aaron Briggs, Jamal Greenwood and Russell Sangster were named to the all-conference team for a Bulldogs squad that finished undefeated in IAC play and claimed its third consecutive tournament title. No. 19 Episcopal and St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes both had two players selected for the conference team while Georgetown Prep and St. Albans had one selection apiece.
Episcopal’s season ended Tuesday with a loss to the Potomac School in the VISAA Division 1 tournament. St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes fell to No. 11 O’Connell Wednesday in the VISAA quarterfinals. Bullis will open play in the inaugural Maryland Private High School Tournament on Tuesday.
Below are the 10 selections for the 2013-14 all-IAC team in alphabetical order:
G Aaron Briggs, Sr., Bullis
The Navy commit led the top-ranked Bulldogs in scoring (12.6 points per game) from the point guard position and knocked down 56 three-pointers this season. He scored a game-high 22 points in the IAC championship game as the Bulldogs topped Episcopal, 63-52.
G/F Edwin Ebube, So., Episcopal
Ebube was the only underclassmen selected but with the rebounding prowess he displayed this season, it’s clear he stacks up with the nine seniors on the team. At 6-foot-5 Ebube rebounds at a very high rate and has the strength to bang inside. He was the second-leading scorer on the Maroon at 13.4 points per game. Ebube played for the Puerto Rican national team last summer and would be a welcome addition to any AAU program this summer.
G Brandon Green, Sr., Georgetown Prep
At 6-foot-3, Green served as the Little Hoyas’ floor general and was the team’s second leading scoring at 12.8 points per game. He also posted four double-doubles including a 15-point, 12-rebound outing in an 85-62 win over McNamara on Dec. 12. Division III schools are showing the guard interest.
G Jamal Greenwood, Sr., Bullis
Greenwood was the glue guy for the Bulldogs, always putting his body on the line for the team and getting into his man defensively. He averaged 11.4 points per game and poured in a season-high 20 points in the IAC semifinal win against Georgetown Prep. Greenwood has visited Philadelphia University and is receiving interest from low major Division I schools and Division II schools.
F Cam Gregory, Sr., St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes
The Loyola (Md.) signee was an imposing figure inside all season and averaged a team-high 15.1 points per game for the Saints. At 6-foot-8, Gregory is skilled with his back to the basket and can step outside of the paint and knock down jump shots. He posted 14 double-doubles this season.
G/F Greg Malinowski, Sr., Episcopal
The Maroon standout was arguably the best player in the IAC this season with his conference-high average of 24.1 points per game. The William & Mary signee scored under 20 points just eight times in 28 total games played. He scored 30 or more points seven times despite being the focal point of opposing defenses.
G Gavin Peppers, Sr., St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes
Peppers showed his distributing skills this season after averaging 14.5 points per game as junior. His assists were up to 2.72 per game and her scored 10.1 points per game for a Saints team that spent most of the season in The Post Top 20. He’s receiving interest from Niagara, Eastern Kentucky, Liberty and Robert Morris.
G Russell Sangster, Sr., Bullis
Sangster never appeared to be in a rush with the ball in his hands and his patience helped him to an 11.9 points per game average. He and Briggs complemented each other well in the backcourt as the duo combined for 40 points in the IAC championship game. Sangster is receiving interest from several Southern Conference schools.
G Matthew Sniezek, Sr., St. Albans
The 6-foot Sniezek led the Bulldogs in scoring at 16.8 points per game and dropped 28 points in an 84-78 win against Georgetown Prep earlier this year. He was the receptions leader (56) for the Bulldogs football team and has yet to decide which sport he will play at the next level.
F Andre Walker, Sr., Bullis
The Hofstra commit is one of the best post players in the area and showed an improved jump shot and offensive game around the basket. He picked up at least one block nearly every game and altered many more shots with his 6-foot-10 frame. He averaged 9.7 points per game and was a walking double-double.
