1. Mount St. Joseph

Coach: Pat Clatchey, pictured

Last season: 31-8, ranked No. 4

Postseason: Baltimore Catholic League champion; MIAA A Conference final

Outlook: With seven regulars returning from last season — including three starters — the Gaels have continuity that other top teams can’t match. All-Metro guard Phil Booth is the starting point guard and has skill, energy and leadership at both ends. Fellow guard Jaylen Adams, and forwards Jordan McNeil and Kyle Doran are versatile talents, and sophomore forward Daveyon Barnes is primed for a breakout season.
