Three players from Neumann-Goretti High School have received Pennsylvania Sportswriters Boys’ Basketball All-State honors for the 2022-23 season.

Junior Robert Wright and senior Sultan Adewale both received First-Team recognition while junior Khaafig Myers received a Second-Team nod in PIAA Class 4. Wright was also named the Class 4A Player of the Year.

Wright, a Baylor University commit who recently transferred to Montverde Academy for his senior year of high school, averaged 23.1 points per game.

Adewale, who recently committed to Iona, averaged 14.8 points and 10.1 rebounds per game while Myers contributed 11.1 points per game as the Saints went 26-4 on the season.

Last month, Neumann-Goretti’s girls team received a pair of Third-Team All-State honorees in sophomores Carryn Easley (13.5 points per game) and Amya Scott (15.7).
