2017-18 Boys’ All-Star Teams


The All-Star teams are broken down by Section 2 classification (AA, A, B, C, & D) for this year’s players.  After covering 60+ full games this season, so far, I’ve seen many of the players listed below multiple times. For the player’s that I haven’t watched in person I’ve relied on contacts in Section 2, other online content/stats/reports, game film, and custom player rankings that I’ve created.

What I’ve tried to do for the custom computer-generated player rankings is create something that will take into account a player’s scoring, his team’s overall performance, and factor in the percentage of his points versus his team’s total point total. Point statistics were used from to compile those numbers. With limited other stats available online (rebounds, steals, assists, etc.) I feel this is the best way to construct the rankings as it factors in overall team performance too.

Past computer player rankings, created for Section 2, have been in line with the top players in the Section as well as players that have moved on to play at the next level. In other words, I trust them as an independent opinion differing from my eyes and other research. All 3 (eyes, rankings, research) are factored in when creating the teams below.

(Players that scored around 10% or more of their team’s total points were ranked and considered for the teams. Over 300+ players fit the criteria. I also know that I’ve left off really good players. I’ve done the best I could when comparing a player’s impact on their team and factoring in their overall team strength.)

Player of the Year

Joseph Girard III, Glens Falls


Joseph Girard III scored over 1100 points this season and became the New York State Boys all-time leading scorer, as a Junior. In the clip above he tied his career high of 60 points in a game coming in a Quarter-Final Sectional win. You’ll see all 17 of his made field goals (9-2’s & 8-3’s).


For each of the teams below the players are listed alphabetically by team. They aren’t ranked in any specific order for their specific set of 5 players. 6 teams for each Class AA, A, B & D. 7 teams for Class C as there are more teams.
