First Team Player Biographies
Evan Scott- North Kingstown
Scott led the Skippers to a 16-2 league record and the No. 1 seed in the state tournament. Aggressive on
the glass, he scored on numerous putbacks and finished with 413 points, a 16.7 average, without making 
a 3-pointer. He tied the school record with 69 blocks this season and finished second on the season 
rebounds list with 229, a 9.2 average. He also had 52 steals. "He became the leader of the team, and 
when the going got tough, everybody knew he was getting it, and they still couldn't stop him. That's the 
biggest compliment I can give," North Kingstown coach Aaron Thomas said. "He was able to get 
everybody to play together and he had a lot of breakaway dunks just from his hustle. He's the best big 
man to run the floor I have had." Scott is leaning toward the University of San Francisco.
Ryan Lawton- West Warwick
Lawton did it all in leading the Wizards to a 17-1 Division II record, the regular-season D-II championship 
and the second round of the state tournament. He averaged a double-double for the season with 20.1 points and 13.5 rebounds and finished his career with 1,300 points and 1,048 rebounds. He blocked 60
shots (2.4 per game), led the team in taking charges with six, averaged 4.5 assists and shot 70 percent 
from the free-throw line. Coach Richard Grenier said, "When looking at both sides of the court, he was a 
match-up problem on the offensive end and was a force for us on the defensive end. His post play on the
block was nearly unstoppable when he was not double-teamed and when he was double-teamed, he would
always look for a teammate." He is heading to URI.

Jarell Lawson- Central
The leading scorer in Division I most of the season, Lawson led Central to a 19-4 record overall and its
first state championship in 20 years. He averaged 19 points, 10.9 rebounds, 2 blocks, 1.5 assists and 
1 steal per game and is the Gatorade Rhode Island player of the year. He had 16 points and 12 rebounds 
in the championship game against Hope. Coach Todd Keefe said: "He put in a lot of work. He's a hard 
worker. When he struggled with his shot, he played good defense and rebounded well. He has a very 
good basketball IQ. A great point is he led the team in most games in most categories. He's very willing to 
pass the ball and make others better. He does what it takes for us to win." Lawson is exploring prep schools.
Tom Hunt- LaSalle
Hunt dazzled the playoff crowd at Providence College's Alumni Hall when he sank six 3-pointers and 
scored 32 points in La Salle's quarterfinal rout of North Providence. He paced the Rams' scoring all 
season, averaging 18.9 points per game. In the semifinal against Hope, he demonstrated his versatility 
by eschewing long jump shots and driving to the basket for most of his 28 points in a losing effort. Said 
coach Marc Bayha: "Putting the ball on the floor and getting to the basket are making him a better player. 
He's rebounding at a much higher clip. He's making his teammates better. He hasn't forced stuff. He's 
letting the game come to him. His effort is more consistent."
Charles Correa- St Raphael
A repeat first-team selection, Correa was the Saints' floor leader again. "He is the perfect point guard and
can pretty much do it all. He can handle the ball. He's a great passer. He can shoot the three. He plays
defense. He's the perfect guy to build a team around, which we did," coach Tom Sorrentine said. He led 
Division I in scoring with a 20.1 average, made 55 three-point shots and sank 51 of his 67 free throws.
"He can do whatever we needed him to do. He wants to make the big play," Sorrentine said
