Junior Elite Camp - Day 2 Recap

Day two of action kicked off on friday morning with some skill work before each team would play their set of three games. While yesterday we put the spotlight on the camps top middle school players, today we look at the older guys at camp, including a loaded class of rising freshman.

Those who impressed:

Jared Terrell 2013- the long athletic wing player has established himself as the most dominant player in the older division because he has been a nightmare for opposing teams so far. Terrell grabbed numerous defensive rebounds and turned them into easy buckets after going baseline to baseline. We loved the way he pushed the rock in the open court.

Kameron Nobles 2013- The Thayer Academy star was on fire today, knocking it down from beyond the arc and finishing in transition. Nobles showed off his wide crossover which helped him get to the rim in the halfcourt.

Ryan Berry 2013- it appears that wachusett regional has landed a solid floor leader for the next four years as Berry is an agressive guard with a tight handle. He has a great build for a rising frosh and has a mature game to go along with the mature body. He gets to the cup at will and sees things before they happen, which can't be taught.

Bobby Ahearn 2013- Marshfield High's incoming big man is the most physically imposing player in the older division. As one high school coach summed it up, "He could start for me right now." At 6'5, Ahearn has been an absolute beast at camp.

Ike Ngwudo 2013- long 6'3 pogo stick was agressive all day. With his athleticism and skill set, Ike looks like he'll be an above the rim player in the near future.

Ben Andrews 2013- good outside shooter with size

Alex Minetti 2013- well rounded lefty with good potential

Ronald Bair 2013- the rising 9th grader has been running on a sore hamstring all week and has still shown glimpses of athleticism. His attitude and willingness to get to every loose ball shows just how tough this kid really is.

Kevin Almond 2013 & Chase Almond 2012- The Almond brothers have stood out as two of the hardest workers this week at camp. Kevin is a shooter with good size while his brother, Chase, stands at 6'3 and can overpower defenders with his back to the basket play and extend the defense with his range.

Alex Valente 2013- The Reading,MA product is a combo guard who shoots the ball with good consistency. He used his crossover dribble on day 2 to get by defenders in isolation situations.

Nate Clarke 2013 & Ryan Perron 2013- These future star point guards have a great court sense to go along with a similar skill set. Clark is a tenacious on the ball defender with a knack for finding his teammates. Perron on the other hand is a crafty point guard and after seeing his feel for the game, it is no surprise that he is a coaches son. Don't sleep on Perron because the playmaking guard can knock it down from beyond the arc. Both look to be ready to contibute to their respective high school programs immediately.

Cane Broome 2013- the Hartford guard knows how to create his own shot with his hesitation dribble moves. His body language was hard to read or defenders as just when you thought he'd pull up for a 15 footer, he'd blow by the competition for an easy lay-in.

Evander Machuca 2013- this Western Mass point guard thived in the open floor and was able to get into the lane at will.

Jesse Maresca 2013- worked hard on both ends of the floor and it paid off. The rising freshman got his share of putback buckets and that's where he made his living today.

Eugene Tyburski 2013- lights out lefty shooter who has great footwork that allowed him to get his shot off at will.

Tyler Bennett 2013- solid guard with excellent midrange game

Jamal Harris 2013- the brute swingman has been a key asset for his team this week as he is constantly scoring off of his ability rebound.

Nick Patterson 2013- portrayed a phenominal midrange game as it was expected every time he pulled up on the baseline that the ball was going in.
