Senior Carl Anderson was one of the stabilizers of the Mercyhurst Prep boys basketball program.
After two coaches were fired in less than one year and first-year coach Sean Baer taking over right before Anderson’s sophomore season, the talented leader helped regroup the program, which led to 56 wins over the past three years.
Anderson, a 6-foot 2-inch forward, averaged 12.5 points per game this year and helped Mercyhurst pick up another PIAA playoff win over District 9 champion Brockway. The Lakers’ program is back playing at a high level each season and Anderson will leave Mercyhurst in the spring as one of the seasons why.
