First Team Player Biographies
Robert Griffin- St Raphael
The St. Raphael senior completed a sensational career by being named the MVP of the Interscholastic 
League's Division I Tournament after he led the Saints to the state championship with a 29-point 
performance against La Salle. Griffin, who has been drawing a lot interest from the University of
Hartford, finished his career with 2,471 points. This season, Griffin averaged close to 24 points, 5 assists,
3 steals and 5.4 rebounds. The strength of Griffin's game was his quickness to the basket. When the
Saints were successful with their running game, Griffin was able to take the ball to the basket for easy
layups. Griffin was no clouch on defense, either, leading the team in steals with 76.
T.J. Sorrentine- St Raphael
There are many who believe the Saints' junior point guard was the spark for a high-octane offense that 
averaged 84 points. His ability to distribute the ball made players around him better. When unable to find 
someone open, Sorrentine could shoot from the outside or take the ball to the basket. He scored 526 points 
this past season. Sorrentine, named St. Raphael's MVP in the title game when he scored 18 points, averaged 
18.8 points and 11 assists this season. His 72 steals were second only to teammate Griffin's 76.
D.J. Munir- Hendricken
After a year of playing point guard as a junior, Munir was moved to shooting guard in his senior season to 
add more punch to the Hawks' attack. The 6-foot-2 Munir adjusted nicely and led the team in scoring, 
assists and steals. Munir averaged 17.8 points, an increase of six points per game from his junior year. 
Munir also averaged 5.3 assists and 3.2 steals. He was second on the team in rebounds with 7.9 per game.
Considered the most valuable player on his team, Munir had a smooth, loping stride to the basket or he 
could pull up and nail a mid-range jumper with consistency. Named to the Division I all-tournament team, 
Munir also won the slam-dunk contest at the annual All-Star competition. Marist and Rider are said to be 
interested in Munir along with a number of Division II colleges. 
Tony Robertson- St Andrew's
A two-time first-team All-Stater from St. Andrew's School, the nationally known Robertson is considered 
by many to be among the top five high school guards in the country. He has been named Rhode Island's 
Gatorade Player of the Year. He also was selected as a high honorable mention McDonald's All-American. 
He also was a fourth-team selection for the Parade All-America team. The 6-foot-2 Robertson, possessing
an explosive first step to the basket, will play for nationally ranked UConn next year. This year, he enjoyed 
his best season against some of the toughest high school competition in the country. The senior finished 
his career with more than 2,400 points and averaged just over 24 points this season, scoring 698 points in 
his final year. Robertson's improved defensive play, overall intensity and court leadership paced the Saints 
to another SENE title and an overall record of 22-7.
Josh Odugbela- St Andrew's
The 6-foot-8 Odugbela was an imposing force under the basket for St. Andrew's the past two years. A 
hard worker, Odugbela worked at improving his shooting and finished the season shooting 63 percent. 
He averaged 17.4 points and nearly 9 rebounds. Odugbela scored 464 points during his senior year. A 
number of Division I colleges, including Manhattan, Rider, Fairfield, Hartford and Canisius, have shown 
interest in Odugbela. He was a McDonald's All American honorable mention.
