In the second of a six-part series, the New England Recruiting Report starts to break down some of the best prospects left on the board in the class of 2016. With most college programs starting to follow the NBA’s lead toward more pace and skill on the offensive end of the floor, shooting is at a premium right now. The problem for college coaches though, is that there isn’t much of it, and so supply isn’t anywhere close to meeting demand.… READ MORE >

Phiri is A10 Bound

Saul Phiri 2016

Posted Saturday, February 13th, 2016

Putnam Science Academy post-graduate Saul Phiri made a verbal commitment to LaSalle on Friday night while on their campus for an official visit.

Phiri is a scoring swingman who is probably best known for his ability to shoot the ball from long range but is a far more versatile scorer than that. He's a smooth ball-handler, able to post smaller guards and… READ MORE >
