Marquis Barnett, a 6-foot-7 1/2, 230-pound power forward/center from Cardozo High School in Bayside, New York was a key player for head coach Ron Naclerio and the success the Judges had this past season.
"He is much more confident this season," said Naclerio in our last interview. "He has more post moves and is better defensively."
Naclerio said Barnett averaged over six points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks per contest. "He's been better offensively over the past couple of weeks," Naclerio said. "He is becoming more confident with the basketball in the low post."
Marquis makes a tremendous impact on the defensive end. He is very active and can distrupt the opponent's interior offensive game.
"Quinnipiac, St. Francis of Pennsylvania and Marist have been showing interest in him," said Naclerio, who said his player is wide open in his recruiting process.
