        Season Preview
The men’s basketball team enters the 2011-2012 season
under a completely different roster and with two new
assistant coaches on staff. Last year the Vikings
finished 14-13, falling just short of qualifying for the
Regional Tournament, but looks to make a strong push
in the upcoming season to contend for a region

Hudson Valley lost two key players from last year’s
squad in forward Steve Hunt (Tamarac/Wynantskill)
and point guard Anthony Robustiano (Mohonasen/
Rotterdam). Hunt was last year’s team MVP, averaging
12.4 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. He finished his
career seventh all-time in rebounds with 374 and tenth
all-time in field-goal percentage at 47.6%. Robustiano
was a two-year captain, commanding the point guard
position finishing his career fifth in Viking history with
202 career assists. He was one of the top shooters in the
region last season and ended with a rank of second in
the country for free-throw percentage at 85.5% and
15th in the country in three-point percentage at 42.5%.

The lone returner to the Viking roster this year is
sophomore forward Kalik Parker (Ragsdale
(NC)/Greensboro, NC). Parker had a tremendous
freshman campaign, leading the team in scoring (17.4
ppg), three-point field goals made (85), rebounds (9.5
rpg), steals (41) and blocks (56). He also was named to
Second-Team All-Conference and Third-Team All-
Region. Parker has the opportunity to move into the
Top-10 in the Viking record books in career points,
career three-point field goals and career blocks.

Transfers Conor Maisch (Coleman Catholic/Kingston)
and Jacob Palmer (Coleman Catholic/Kingston) will
add a perimeter threat to the roster this season. Both
have the ability to make the long range shot and
should stretch defenses out. Jeremy Taylor
(Catskill/Catskill) should help anchor the front court
this year with a heavy rotation of other low post
players. The Times Union Small School Player of the
Year, Taylor will fill a big role down low and will be
relied upon early. Jeffrey Kurzinski (Mohonasen/
Schenectady) and Kenny Jones (University Heights/
Bronx) will lead the backcourt for the Vikings this
season. Each has excellent ball handling skills and can
play the point at any time. They should see big minutes
this season.
