The Glassboro High School boys basketball team finished with a 5-9 record last season and will lean on a plenitude of underclassmen moving forward.
The Bulldogs collected a pair of wins over Schalick and Woodstown, in addition to a victory over neighboring rival Pitman last season.
However, the Bulldogs lost their top two scorers to graduation and will need to replicate their production. Amare Kersey averaged 14.1 points per game last season and Marsae Landrum contributed just shy of 8.8 points per game.
Coach Steve Belh will welcome back five returning lettermen including junior Jhaisir Harden. According to NJ.com, Harden averaged 4.4 points per game in five contests and poured in 14 points in a 72-44 win over Woodstown.
Sophomores De’Yon Rowland, Cartrell Moore and Charles Graves also return after charting minutes as freshmen. Senior Qasim Muhammed and junior Peter Dempster also appeared in multiple games for Glassboro.
Sophomore Michael Dougherty joins the program after attending Bishop Eustace Preparatory School in Pennsauken as a freshman.
Sophomores Joshua Buff, Gavin Wyllie and junior Chris Wyllie also return after appearing in at least one game each for the Bulldogs in last year’s shortened campaign. Junior John Hill rounds out Glassboro’s roster for the upcoming season.
