Overview: The Patriots finished sixth in Western B last year before losing to Wells in the first round. Gray-NG has six players back from that club, including Valente, who was an all-conference player and averaged 14.6 points and 7.8 rebounds. Adams is another veteran in the post while Dumont (9.4 ppg), Conley, DeTroy and Kariotis all showed promise as freshmen. Though young on paper, the Patriots should be a seasoned team and hope to be in the tourney hunt again.
