Coach Bruce Jackman credited much of the success to senior forwards Kevin Bartas and Ian Beach , who averaged roughly 10 points per game apiece and, arguably more importantly, provided toughness, physically and mentally. Junior guards Brian Mukasa (18 points per game) and Jimmy Fritzson (15) went off for 20 and 34 points respectively against Scituate, combining for 54 of Sharon’s 79 points.
According to Jackman, that was the norm.
“All year long they’ve carried us,” he said, noting that both have had several 30-plus-point games.
The Eagles didn’t have a ton of height — the 6-2 Bartas and 6-1 Beach played the post — and look like they might have even less next season, with 5-9 Mukasa and 5-10 Fritzson expected to lead the way.
Jackman has high hopes, though.
“We’re the munchkin world down here,” Jackman said. “But [Mukasa and Fritzson] are very, very good.
“I think that they’re pretty much the class of the backcourts on the South Shore next year.”
