Ryan Graham rescheduled a family vacation to compete for Mid-Hudson’s team at the Basketball Coaches Association of New York Summer Hoops Fest last year.

In his second go-around, Graham is focused on taking Mid-Hudson deeper in the tournament on Aug. 2-4 in Johnson City.

Graham, who will enter his senior year at Washingtonville this fall, and fellow returning Class of 2020 guards Darius Boben (James I. O’Neill) and Josh Gattling (Monticello) helped Mid-Hudson to a 3-1 record and a semifinal berth.

“It’s a big commitment from everybody that makes the team with it being in the middle of the summer,” said Graham, who averaged 12.6 points per game for Washingtonville as a junior.

“It was a good experience last year. It showed that we could compete with the other sections in the state. We think we can do that again this year.”

Mid-Hudson’s roster, which was announced Wednesday, is perimeter heavy with the three returning guards in addition to Monticello’s Jordan Ruggiero, who dished out five assists per game as a sophomore, Wallkill’s Mat Shea, who is coming off an impressive freshman season in which he scored 17.6 points per game and New Paltz’s Matt Simmons, a slasher who showed the ability to finish at the basket his sophomore year.

Chester’s Kevin Stein, who averaged 17.6 points in his junior season, provides scoring from the wing.

Washingtonville’s Romeo Aquino, who had a breakout junior season, will be counted on as an inside presence that high school teammate Kareem Lubin accounted for last summer.

“Kareem was a huge part of the team with rebounding and scoring,” Graham said. “Romeo is going to have to fill the big man.”

Newburgh Free Academy’s JK King and Nakai Wheeler and Red Hook’s Brandon Cahill round out Mid-Hudson’s team. Red Hook’s Matt Hayes will coach the team for the third straight summer.
