First Team Player Biographies
Reggie Fabian- Cranston East
This 6-foot-3 senior may be the best true point guard in the state. What he did this year was turn himself 
into a backcourt leader who made his teammates better players. Fabian came up with nine triple-doubles 
and one quardruple-double and paced East to a 14-4 regular-season record in Division I-Central. He 
averaged 18 points, 8.5 rebounds, 9 assists and 5 steals. Fabian could be headed to Cushing Academy Prep 
School in Ashburnham, Mass. 
Robert Griffin- St. Raphael
The St. Raphael junior put together a terrific season that led the Saints to the Division I-North regular 
season title in the Interscholastic League. The 6-foot Griffin, blessed with great open-court quickness that 
allows him to consistently beat defenders off the dribble, scored 683 points this season. He averaged 26 
points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists. Griffin's outside accuracy improved as did his free-throw shooting. Another 
Division I college prospect, Griffin has drawn interest from Hartford, Iowa State, Dayton, Manhattan and 
Fairfield. Prep school also is a possibility for him after he graduates St. Raphael next year. 
Tim Murphy- La Salle
The 6-foot-3 junior, ranked second academically in his class, is the best pure shooter on this All-State team. 
Owner of an extremely quick release, Murphy gunned in 52 3-pointers this season and finished the year 
having scored 618 points for the Division I state champs. Never shy with a shot, there was no question that 
Murphy was La Salle's go-to guy when the game was on the line. His foul shooting also improved this year. 
He connected 77 percent of the time from the free-throw line. Although hampered with a very sore shoulder, 
Murphy sank eight big free throws in the second half of the title game against Hendricken. Penn and Brown 
are said to be interested in Murphy. 
Josh Odugbela- St. Andrew’s
The 6-foot-8 junior forward may be the most improved player in the state from a year ago. After transferring 
from Mount Pleasant, Odugbela put his life in order in the classroom and on the basketball court. He 
averaged 19 points, 13 rebounds and 4 blocked shots for St. Andrew's, the SENE champions. An imposing 
inside presence, Odugbela ended up with 383 rebounds, 116 blocks and scored 547 points. Odugbela is 
another Division I college prospect and is being recruited by a number of schools including Marist, Fairfield, 
and Manhattan. 
Tony Robertson- St. Andrew’s
Arguably, the best all-around high school player in Rhode Island, the 6-foot-3 junior is being recruited by 
10 big-time Division I colleges. He has said he will make his choice next fall. Robertson enjoyed another 
splendid year, averaging 28 points, nearly 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals. Scoring 792 points, Robertson 
paced the Saints to a 27-1 record and a fourth-place ranking in the NESN poll of top New England teams. 
In addition, Robertson was chosen first-team All-SENE and was a first-team All-New England Prep choice.
