Rhode Island 2012 Rankings Released

Rhode Island’s top ten in the class of 2012 has seen some shifting since we last updated our rankings, but the one thing that stays the same are the two players atop the list.

St. Andrew’s big man Cedric Kuakumensah remains the top ranked player in the state while North Providence’s Rob Hazard continues to set the tone in the RIIL and sit in the second spot.

Kuakumensah pulled in MVP honors earlier this month as St. Andrew’s took the title at the Abbotsford Collegiate Snowball Classic, as the Saints traveled to western Canada to come away with the international title. 

While Kuakumensah does his best work on the defensive end of the floor, Correa shines with his ability to put points on the board, and he’s been doing just that this year as a senior, rattling off 20 points per game to lead North Providence.

St. Andrew’s big man Kalusha Ndoumbe Ngollo checks in next on the list as the six-foot-eight big man continues to expand his already versatile game as he becomes more comfortable with the speed and physicality of the American game.
Next up is Mike Neal, the six-foot-six big man who has been setting the tone inside the paint this year for Shea High School after transferring from Marianapolis Prep.  The top five is rounded out by St. Raphael’s forward Cesar Mejia

Hazard’s backcourt running mate Austin Van Bemmelen checks in next at the sixth spot while seventh ranked Tyler Sabino has been a very pleasant surprise for St. Andrew’s this year.

Mike Ferrante, Tom Garrick, and Ryan Lawton have also played their way into the top ten, finishing at eight, nine, and ten respectively.
