Location: Brookville, N.Y.
18-19 Record: 25-2
Final Super 25 Rank: 9

Why them: The Crusaders return a strong core, which is led by do-it-all point guard Andre Curbelo, who averaged 20 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and five steals a game last season. Curbelo is the well-oiled engine that makes the Crusaders go and makes everyone better.

Long Island Lutheran does lose players including Tyler Stephenson-Moore, a Newsweek All-Long Island First Team player, but the team that finished the season by rattling off a dozen straight victories and winning the championship under coach of the year finalist John Buck looks to be a top team heading into the offseason.
