The FCIAC boys basketball season reaches the midway point this week, and work has started on an analysis of events to date, including a midseason All-FCIAC Team, Coach of the Year and Player of the Year.

In this season of parity, it is not surprising that feedback from six coaches thus far has yielded three different names for the best player.

In my view, you can make a reasonable argument for four or five different players, and the decision comes down to how you define most valuable. Is it the best player? Of is it the player who, if you removed him, would cause the most adverse effect on his team?

Using the latter as a basis, I think the choice is between Bridgeport Central’s Tyler Ancrum, Stamford’s Kenny Wright, Westhill’s Jeremiah Livingston and Alex Wolf or CJ Byrd of Greenwich (you could have a poll over which player is more valuable for the Cardinals. Based on a number of coaches I’ve spoken to, it would be about a 60-40 vote; I won’t say who would get the majority).

So as we approach the halfway point of the season, I am going to pose the question to you: Who has been the FCIAC’s most valuable boys basketball player? Since we don’t want to split the vote or pick one player over the other, we are going to make Wolf-Byrd one entry with the other three players. Or you can pick “Other” if you prefer someone else and, if you want, enter a comment with your choice.

We will keep the vote open until noon on Friday.


  1. Dave, what about Wilton’s Eric Houska? He is leading the Warriors to another successful season. Had 31 against St. Joes and 27 against Trinity in two huge wins for Coach Geriaks squad. He had to take on the point guard role and is doing that tremendously well while still averaging 20 pts a game.

  2. What about Matt turner of Trumbull? Averaging about 20 a game, and is only a sophomore, has a very very bright future

  3. Not even close, he can get 20 every night, 10 or more assist, 5 steals, 4 or more teammates in double figures because he’s that good in the open floor. The league has change the way they play defense (2-3 zone) just to stop him, who is that? Tyler Ancrum that’s who!

    Ps- if this website was more public, it would be no contest!

  4. Kenny Wright is not only a super athlete in basketball and baseball but he also is a great student who exemplifies what it is to be a Stamford Black Knight! He is a leader academically and athletically!

  5. GO Ken! We send you love all the way from Jacksonville Florida. You are a POWER house! Keep following your dreams! We hope to see you play soon!

    Georgie, Eric, Erica, Jasmine, and Lexy

  6. We are proud of you Kenny, and also happy that you know what your priorities are. Good luck
