(Original publication: December 7, 2007)
Kevin Jones, Mount Vernon: No player improved as much last season as the 6-foot-8 Jones, who averaged 21 points and 11.8 rebounds and guided the Knights to their third Class AA state title in four seasons. Jones, who has signed with West Virginia, is an inside-outside threat who has a chance to average nearly 30 points a game this season.

Mookie Jones, Peekskill: In three full varsity seasons, Jones has guided the Red Devils to three Class A state championships and the last two Federation titles. The 6-6 forward is among the most versatile players in the state, averaging 22.6 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks per game. Jones has signed with Syracuse.

Tony Taylor, Stepinac: The George Washington-bound senior is the area's best point guard. He averaged 22.1 points, 6.8 assists and 2.2 steals per game, leading the Crusaders to a 17-8 record. He has continued to improve throughout the offseason and could lead Stepinac to a CHSAA A Division championship.

Sean Kilpatrick, White Plains: The 6-foot-4 senior guard/forward developed into one of the area's most versatile players last season. He averaged 18 points and eight rebounds per game, highlighted by his 25-point effort in White Plains' win over Mount Vernon in early February. Kilpatrick has drawn major Division I interest.

Sherrod Wright, Mount Vernon: The area's best underclassman has begun to get serious Division I interest after a breakout sophomore season. Wright, a 6-5 swingman, averaged 15.7 points per game despite being the team's third option. He's a gifted athlete who scores from anywhere on the floor and should see his numbers rise this season.

Brian Jones, Nyack: One of the most versatile players in the section, Jones might be the best in Rockland County. He plays anywhere from point guard to center. He can rebound, shoot and defend multiple positions. If Nyack mounts the turnaround people expect, his name will quickly spread as one of the elite.

Jordan Henriquez, Port Chester: When the Rams' offense runs through Henriquez, they are a difficult team to stop. At 6-11, he dominates the interior and is the area's premier shot blocker. Henriquez averaged 13.4 points and 12 rebounds per game, and has garnered interest from Connecticut, Memphis, Rhode Island, Drexel and Marist.
