#NEHF 9th & 10th Grade Division - Saturday Recap II
The action in the 9th and 10th grade divisions only got more intense as the day went on Saturday.
The PSA Cardinals took the court at the MPlex showing a star studded roster including a top 25 sophomore in the country, Mohammed Bamba who showed freakish like length, athleticism and budding skill. Bamba added offers from the likes of Syracuse, Arizona, Connecticut and several others last week alone and is quickly becoming one of the most notable prospects in the national 2017 class. He was surrounded by a pair of local products who were equally dominant in their own right, Hassahn French and Samuel Japhet-Mathias, forming quite possibly the most dominant interior trio in the field regardless of division. French was powerful and explosive alike around the rim, not only bullying his way around the rim but also showing some face-up game, while Japhet-Mathias was virtually unstoppable when able to get catches on the block. While the Cardinals stole the show on Saturday, they certainly weren't the only ones who impressed.
- ABC's Carter Scott was weaving in and out of traffic effortlessly with his handle and making plays in traffic look easy.
- Isiah McMnn is a playmaking lead guard for the CT Playmakers who made enough shots to keep defenders honest around the arc.
- Savion Boissard is a 6-foot-2 wing from Valley Central High School who looks like a very talented long-term prospect for the B.C. Eagles.
- Tyrek Chambers might not have played much varsity for Christ the King this season, but the New Rens 2018 prospect already owns an offer from Providence and showed why in this setting.
- RI Renegades' Isaiah Roman was solid and dependable running the show from start to finish and in complete control of his team.
- Mass Evo's Greg Preston was another talented guard from Mass Evo who utilized his quickness as his primary weapon on both ends of the floor.
Here's a look at some of the tweets coming from the action:
