TEAM FRENJI Alumni 6’5 Freshmen SG SEAN KILPATRICK caught up with us after we attended his game this past Saturday vs St Johns. SK’s Bearcats beat the Red Storm 53-51 in front of a packed house. Even though SK only had 3 pts he was able to grab 3 rebs and dish 3 assists. SK got a chance to meet some of our grassroots players after the game and give them advice for the future. Pictured left are 14U players Jordan Ruillano & Jaleel Barr. SK’s next game is Wednesday 1/26 at home vs Rutgers on ESPNU.
Team Frenji player 6’3 Jr. RANDY STEPHENS of Mt. Vernon HS made his first official mark on this season as he helped propel Mt. V over New Ro yesterday for a 59-51 road win. With superstar Jabarie Hinds (WVU) in foul trouble, the slasher scored 7 unanswered to rally the Knights in the 1st half and keep the game close. Randy has been a consistent spark for the Knights this season averaging 8ppg. It was Randy’s first taste of the heated rivalry and one he thrived in. Look for Randy to continue to help the Knights march towards another Section 1 title this year. Check out the rivalry again this season at Mt Vernon on Feb. 4th @ 4:15pm.
Team Frenji sends out congratulations to the following local stars for being nominated to the prestigious McDonald’s All American Game this year. Final player rosters will be announced soon.

Local Legend Tyrone “T-Bone” Foster has been inducted in the Trinity Valley Community College Hall of Fame. T-Bone starred at Woodlands HS in the early 90’s before finishing up at the Harvey School. He teamed up with another local legend Danya Abrams at Woodlands. T-Bone went onto to TVCC and then Olahoma and finally finished up at Southwest Louisanna State. Congrats to Tyrone and his family. We look forward to bringing T-Bone back to TDYCC where he grew up and made his mark on the Westchester basketball community. Here is a write up on his induction:
Foster: “Still the holder of six school records, Foster is one of the most dominant guards in Cardinal basketball history. He is the record holder for consecutive free throws in a game (15), career three-pointers (149), best career three-point percentage (41.5), assists in a game (17), assists in a season (288) and assists in a career (463).
Foster directed the Cardinals to a 30-8 record in the 1994-95 season, which represents the last 30-win season for the men’s basketball program. The Cardinals finished eighth that year at the national tournament. He was first-team All-America as a sophomore in 1995 and was twice named all-conference.
Foster played one season at Oklahoma University, where he averaged 10.5 points per game and helped the Sooner reached the NCAA Tournament. Foster played one season at the University of Louisiana. At Louisiana, he averaged 16.0 points per game and shot 42.5 percent from three-point range, helping the Ragin’ Cajuns to the Sun Belt Tournament championship and earning him all-conference honors.”
Archbishop Stepinac Basketball along with Team Frenji has a long list of accomplished players. With that being said we decided to take a moment to compare the growth of the two following players within their high school seasons. The players are Present Stepinac PG 6’0 Sophomore Josh James and the past is current George Washington U. & Stepinac Alumni 6’0 PG Tony Taylor. Is Josh on course to be the next T2? Both are blessed with a tremendous Basketball IQ, size, speed and outstanding ball handling ability. The question is Josh on pace to become the next great guard to come from Stepinac? (The list is long). Does he have the scorers mentality that T2 had? Can he become the deadly outside shooter that T2 was (54 pts in Slam Dunk Tourney)? Can he lead the Crusaders into the future just as Tony lead Stepinac back to prominence in 2004-05? What can T2 teach Josh now so he can become a dominate force in the CHSAA over the next two years? Both players have had success on the AAU circuit. Now Tony is staring for the Colonials of GW as a Junior (14 ppg and on track to score 1000 for his career). Josh has the Crusaders at 12-5, following a great leader in Conroy Baltimore (Lehigh), leading the team in assists (5:2 assists to TOs) an (6ppg). Head Coach Tim Phillip thinks both are comparable but the biggest question as it is for any player is their commitment to getting better. Legend has it that T2 would shoot 500 jumpers prior and after games. Josh….Are you that hungry? We at Frenji Sports are proud of our guys as they grow, but we thought it would be fun to compare the progress of two of our own. Now its up to you guys to compare and let us know your thoughts.
