4. John Carroll( Algerina Perna, Baltimore Sun / February 19, 2012 )
Coach: Tony Martin
Last season: 30-8, No. 5
Postseason: MIAA A Conference champion, BCL finals
Outlook: Coming off a second straight 30-plus win season, the Patriots have all the necessary ingredients for a third one -- experienced guard play, good size and athleticism up front, and a deep roster. Senior guard Rodney Elliott runs the show, while forward Mike Owona is the first of many inside options.
