#S16 Day 1 - Varsity Division Social Media Blog
Division I and II NCAA coaches aren't permitted out at this time of year but that didn't mean there wasn't plenty of #RealExposure being had at the Super 60 Showcase with over 30 division III coaches in attendance and tons of media coverage from the New England Recruiting Report's various outlets.
Here's a social media recap of Saturday's action in the varsity division.
To follow along in real time on Saturday follow @NERRhoops on both twitter and instagram.

2020 Justin Davis is the #POTG in a win for @CT_Passion_AAU -Vazquez. The physical point guard loves to attack in transition and consistently knocked down pull up jump shots. #S16 Varsity pic.twitter.com/rCgwMZMgdW— Michael B. DiMartino (@mdimartino203) May 25, 2019
2020 guard Jonathon Willeman had an excellent game for @longhornsaau. He balanced getting his shot and finding teammates, and rebounded very well for his position. #S16 Varsity pic.twitter.com/NU9Q7g6XMt— NERR (@NERRHoops) May 25, 2019
The @Rise_AboveBball backcourt trio of Spencer Aronson (18pts & 5 threes), Bryant Ciccio (10pts & numerous assists), & JayQyan Leonard (14pts) controlled the game from start to finish to lead RAB to a win this afternoon. #S16 Varsity pic.twitter.com/HO8lKap2uK— NERR (@NERRHoops) May 25, 2019

2021 G Brandon Wiercinski of @MassELITEHoops and @lacademyhoops is a volume shooter with a quick release. His team relied heavily on his 3pt shooting today, especially down the stretch. #S16 Varsity pic.twitter.com/u5FkTP62eN— Michael B. DiMartino (@mdimartino203) May 25, 2019

2021 G Charlie Weisberg has been impressive for @MassELITEHoops -Mott. The @millbrookschool product is playing up with the Varsity and has displayed a great court vision and feel for the game. #S16 Varsity— Michael B. DiMartino (@mdimartino203) May 25, 2019
The Notre Dame- West Haven duo of Zach Laput and Ben Carroll have been impressive for the New England Blue Chips. Both have made significant strides in the past year and have increased their recruitment. #S16 Varsity— Michael B. DiMartino (@mdimartino203) May 25, 2019
Jaydon Belliveau-Ryan stepped up HUGE for @MassELITEHoops! He scored 24 points, including five threes. Whenever Mass Elite Jenkins needed a bucket, Jaydon delivered. #S16 Varsity pic.twitter.com/S3vRpO9L4i— NERR (@NERRHoops) May 25, 2019
Will Rywolt ‘20 is the player of the game for @RIMagichoops! He tallied 24 points with 5 threes, and he was also a terrific passer. Rywolt frequently found outlet and hit-ahead passes to cut open the defense. #S16 Varsity pic.twitter.com/Vx9KWxbMao— NERR (@NERRHoops) May 26, 2019
Ethan Okwuosa is the player of the game for @PTT_Hoops! He scored 17 points, and was able to score from all three levels. His midrange jumper was very smooth, and he hit a big three in the clutch. #S16 Varsity pic.twitter.com/coBq4mi0ky— NERR (@NERRHoops) May 26, 2019
Connor Keegan has a breakout game for @MassELITEHoops tonight! He scored 11 points, 3 threes, and was a major catalyst for Mass’ storm back from 20 down. They ultimately came up short, but Connor Gabe his best shot and then some against a bigger defender. #S16 Varsity pic.twitter.com/hPrlf53Ycy— NERR (@NERRHoops) May 26, 2019
