BasketBull Hoopsfest - Wednesday Blog
NERR scout Jared Exler was on hand at South End Community Center in Springfield, MA for the BasketBull Hoopsfest.
In case you missed any of the action, here is a rundown from him on some of the Wednesday standouts.
Darius Lopes, a 2025 from @VermontAcadHoop & @RIElite_ caught my eye. The guard has a crafty handle, can hit treys when spotting up, while also being active in passing lanes for steals. pic.twitter.com/sTnybqQTIc— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) December 14, 2022
Quinnipiac commit & @ChoateHoops guard Khaden Bennett impressed against a AAA team. He made three-pointers in multiple ways, got to the free throw line at a high volume, and created second chance opportunities as an offensive rebounder. pic.twitter.com/ya6GGVry9V— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) December 14, 2022
2024 @Suffield_Hoops forward Mason Wright is a capable standstill three-point shooter, threat when pulling up from fifteen feet, while also being willing to stick his nose in on the defensive glass. pic.twitter.com/v4KDv3Uwqr— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) December 14, 2022
It was a productive outing for 2023 @WinchHoops forward Trey Phillips during a win. He hit three spot-up treys, made some heady off ball cuts for layups, and also contributed as a defensive rebounder. pic.twitter.com/M7ZQuDbW6C— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) December 15, 2022
2023 @PSAhoops & @ExpressionsBall guard Darryl Simmons was solid tonight. He uses his creative handle to get paint touches, can hit open standstill three-pointers, while also being a pest on ball defender. pic.twitter.com/FWV4ZSzwcs— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) December 15, 2022
2024 @NMHBoysHoops & @RiversideHawks big man Emile Johnson displayed some intriguing traits tonight. He changes ends well, can block shots on/off the ball, and shows glimpses of pick & roll finishing ability. pic.twitter.com/pL0e7owQp0— Jared Exler (@JExlerNERRHoops) December 15, 2022
