Hoop Mountain SW2 - Thursday Recap
Stonehill College was jam packed with college scouts on Thursday as the 400 plus campers in attendance continued to battle it out on the hardwood. Here's a look at who impressed:
Jaylen Brantley, Wilbraham & Monson - He had a monster outing today as he controlled the game from start to finish, attacking the rim at will and finishing everything, including a half court buzzer beater just before halftime.
Ed Lawrence, Canterbury School- He had a good second half as he attacked and finished on the offensive glass. He saw numerous double teams in the post, but he was able to pass well out of them and find the open man.
Josh Downes, Tabor Academy – He did a little bit of everything as he knocked down pull up jumpers from 15 feet, shot the three, rebounded hard and had a 10 point quarter.
Jacquil Taylor, Cambridge Rindge and Latin - His high motor was in full force today as he blocked and altered several shots. His improved skill set was capped off with a spin move along the baseline for a hard dunk.
Jake Layman, King Phillip - He used his length to finish in a variety of ways around the rim, including numerous thunderous dunks while creating havoc for opposing defenses with his smooth stroke and good ball skills. His combination of length and quickness changed the game on the defensive end, on both the interior and perimeter.
Andrew Chrabascz, Cushing Academy - He stood out with his ability to put the ball on the floor to go along with his solid inside game. He stretched the defense with his shooting and attacked the rim finishing with both hands. He has a high-class motor that never stops on both ends of the floor.
Cane Broome, East Hartford - An explosive guard who used his elite quickness to get into the lane. He also drills threes from all angles on the court. His ability to read the defense and make the extra pass puts him at the top of the list of point guards here at camp.
Lee Messier, Bishop Hendriken - He had a dynamic game as he poured in 34 points including 7 three pointers. He used his lights out shooting to draw defenders and attack closeouts off the dribble. This rising junior has all the tools to have a breakout summer.
Matt Cimino, Worcester Academy - The skilled big man displayed a nice face up game knocking down multiple 15 footers. He fought hard on the glass and helped his team start the fast break. Only a sophomore he has a world of potential.
Kyle Reardon, Rivers - Reardon had defenders dancing all day with his step back jumper. He runs the floor as well as anybody at camp and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball.
