Mineola Mustangs Basketball Preview
Jerelle Harrison: Co-captain, third year varsity player and two-year starter at point guard. Offensively, he is a great passer with an explosive first step to the basket. Defensively, he has incredibly quick hands, averaged more than 5 steals per game last year. We will count on him for his senior leadership, maturity and scoring. He's the key to the offense. As Jerelle goes, so goes the team.
