Basketball Team Places 3 on LoHud #Super7 for 3rd Time Since 2009

For the third time since the inception of The Journal News' #Super7 preseason selections in the mid-2000s, the Iona Preparatory basketball team has taken three of the top 7 spots. Seniors Joshua Alexander, Souleymane Koureissi and Bryce Wills were all named to the list when LoHud made its announcement last week.

Alexander and Wills are repeat selections from 2016 and the Gaels "Big Three" join previous trios of Thomas Capuano '15, Ty Jerome '16 and Matthew Ryan '15 two years ago, and Class of 2010 graduates Jordan Bronner, Sandro Carissimo and Brian Voelkel in 2009.

Alexander led the Gaels in scoring (13.3) and rebounding (7.6) last year, Koureissi is a versatile forward with 22 Division 1 offers to his name before settling on Richmond earlier this year, and Wills is currently the No. 2-ranked player in New York and 90th-ranked recruit nationally according to 247 Sports.
