Video: Preseason Top 25 basketball rankings
Breaking down the national contenders heading into the 2019-20 season.
Head Coach: Dave Boff
Last Season: No. 43 in final Top 100, 28-4 (NJSIAA Non-Public B finalist)
Feb. 1 vs. Patrick School (Hillside, N.J.)
After falling in the NJSIAA Non-Public B championship game to eventual New Jersey Tournament of Champions winner Ranney last season, the Lions are serious contenders for their fourth crown in eight years in 2019-20.
Winning three of the last seven New Jersey TOC titles, Roselle Catholic has established a Garden State level of excellence.
This group has all the pieces to add to 2018's title led by a deep rotation with three high-major seniors.
Omoruyi continues to improve his all-around game after a strong summer, joined by talented newcomers Lane and Wilcher to form a lethal big three.
Other key returners Greaves and Floyd Jr. are expected to round out the starting rotation, with highly touted freshman Wilcher emerging as a name to watch off the bench.
The Lions face a challenging national schedule with three preseason Top 15 opponents — No. 5 Huntington Prep, No. 7 Patrick School (twice) and No. 11 Bishop Gorman — on the docket.
