MARK CANDELARIO The 6-feet-7 Candelario provided an imposing presence inside for the Blue Devils, averaging 16 points 16.8 rebounds and 3.5 blocks. He controlled the middle on offense and defense according to coach Bryan Bonitz. “He was an excellent defender and rebounder and was quick to outlet the ball to start our fast break. This year he became a force on offense by developing a quality post game.” One of Candelario’s biggest efforts was 29 points and 20 rebounds during a 70-61 victory over Saugerties. ROB LAMONT Lamont mixed it up inside to key another successful year for the Bombers, who repeated as Section 9, Class C champs. He surpassed the milestone of 1,000 career points while scoring 18 points during a 61-41 MHAL semifinal triumph over Millbrook. Lamont averaged 15.4 points and 7.1 rebounds. Willingness to take shots underneath enabled Lamont to reach the foul line on a regular basis, and he converted 69 of 103 attempts. His career concluded with a 13-point effort in a 62-44 loss to Tuckahoe in the regional semifinals. MIKE TAMBURRI A leader in every way possible, Tamburri was the heart and soul of Marlboro’s drive to MHAL and Section 9, Class A championships. He averaged 14.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.9 steals. Tamburri made 43 3-point baskets while shooting at a 40-percent clip. In the MHAL title game against Pine Plains, he had 18 points. Six of Tamburri’s 15 points in the sectional final against Red Hook came during overtime. JOVAN COFFEY Coffey consistently provided double figures in points and rebounds for the Tigers, who started 15-0 on the way to a 17-3 season. Played much taller than his 6-4 height with superior leaping skill and long arms. Averaged 13.8 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.1 steals. Also demonstrated an ability to shoot from the perimeter with 13 3-pointers. Scored a careerhigh 24 points in a 66-63 loss at Middletown. JUSTIN ROBINSON Multi-talented point guard Robinson made things happen for the Tigers in many ways. He averaged 13.3 points, 7.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 4.1 steals. In the Section 9, Class AA semifinals against Washingtonville, Robinson tied Jesse Cannie’s school assist record with 15. He was at his best in the season’s first meeting with ancient rival Newburgh, scoring 26 points and supplying 10 assists and eight rebounds. Kingston beat the Goldbacks for the first time in six years.
