The early surprise of the boys basketball season has been surging St. Edward. The Green Wave defeated Marian Central in Woodstock Tuesday to improve to 8-1 overall, 1-0 in the Gold Division of the Suburban Christian Conference. The Wave won 11 games last season. St. Edward fans have reason to be excited about a team poised for success in both the near and long term. The 14-man squad has only two seniors: 6-foot-4 forward Adrian Ponce and 5-7 point guard Antonio Domel. Ponce was named MVP of the Westminster Christian Thanksgiving Tournament after leading the Green Wave in scoring. He averages 11.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, both team highs. Domel led the Fox Valley area in assists as a junior and is averaging 4.2 assists through 9 games.
