UPB High Schoolers Headed to D-1 Schools By Ellie Lieberman
Learn more about what our regulars will bring to the table for their respective schools next year. 
Connor Strambi
Connor Strambi: Fresh off a post-graduate year at New Hampton School in New Hampshire, Connor Strambi will head to Santa Clara as a preferred walk-on. New Hampton boasts an impressive list of basketball alumni including Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin and Providence coach Ed Cooley, as well as current NBA players Noah Vonleh and Tyler Lydon. Strambi is one of eight players from the 2018-2019 New Hampton squad to go onto collegiate basketball with teammates going to Cincinnati and Northeastern among other schools. Strambi’s not the only one is his family to go D-1 as his sister rows at Penn too.
Ezra Manjon
Ezra Manjon: Manjon will most certainly be a candidate for Big West Rookie of the Year next year as he starts his collegiate career at UC-Davis. Manjon averaged 15.8 points and five assists as a senior at Heritage High School, and concluded his season with a 33 point outburst in the NorCal Regionals. Off the court, Manjon lists Raising Canes and Chick-Fil-A as two of his go-to restaurants. 
Neal Begovitch
Neil Begovich: Begovich will head from the city to the suburbs to play at Stanford University in the fall. Begovich concluded his career at St. Ignatius with all-city honors and a reputation as a double-double machine. Begovich lists LeBron James as his favorite athlete, and fruit gushers as one of his favorite snacks. His older brother Daniel is currently at Stanford and his eldest brother, Joe, is an alumni.
