Duncan Robinson joins The Upside Podcast

Posted Friday, January 10th, 2020

The Upside Podcast is back for 2020 and our latest guest is none other than New England native Duncan Robinson who graduated from Governors Academy, did a post-graduate year at Phillips Exeter Academy, and played for the Middlesex Magic.  Robinson is a classic late-bloomer who was just a 5-foot-7 freshman at Governors Academy before growing another foot-plus. He spent his freshman year at D3 Williams College before transferring to Michigan. He went undrafted in 2018, spent last season boucning between… READ MORE >

One-on-one with Cam Tongue

One-on-one with Cam Tongue

Posted Thursday, January 9th, 2020

Rivers School and Mass Rivals forward Camaron Tongue established himself as one of the top juniors in New England last spring and summer.  With his recruitment just beginning to reach the high-major level though, he made a surprising decision with an official visit and subsequent verbal commitment to Santa Clara this fall.  Now, in the midst of an equally strong winter campaign, Tongue sat down with NERR and discussed that decision, why it was the right move for him, and… READ MORE >

New England’s Top 40 for 2022

New England’s Top 40 for 2022

Posted Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

Yesterday, we published our first set of 2022 rankings in all six New England states.  Today, it’s time for a composite list of New England’s sophomore class as a whole.  Collectively speaking, this looks like a group that has a chance to be one of New England’s best as there’s lots of talent at the top of the class, plenty of depth, and still new names undoubtedly yet to emerge.  The battle for the top spot is a close one… READ MORE >

2022 State Rankings Debut

2022 State Rankings Debut

Posted Tuesday, January 7th, 2020

Updated rankings begin in the class of 2022 with New England's six individual states.  Massachusetts has, far and away, the deepest class in New England at the moment with 30 ranked prospects while Connecticut is next best with 15. Maine, Rhode Island, Vermont, and New Hampshire each have a top five for the time being.  As a reminder, rankings are not about the here and now, but about the future. We're not assessing who the best high school player is… READ MORE >

Names to Know in New England’s 2023 Class

Posted Monday, January 6th, 2020

This week, we will begin the process of updating rankings in all states and grades across New England.  It begins in the freshmen class, but not with conventional rankings.  Three years ago, we made the decision to stop “ranking” prospects that young, as history had shown us it was too early in the process to project future levels of success with any certainty and too often those early labels were more of a burden than anything.  Instead, we published a… READ MORE >

Names to Know in the VPA

Names to Know in the VPA

Posted Saturday, January 4th, 2020

Our final state association preview takes us to Vermont and the VPA, which was another state where we got an early glimpse of some of the top local talent during our Fall Open Gym Series.  On Friday night, the state’s two most notable undefeated teams squared off as Champlain Valley Union traveled to Rice Memorial and came away with a convincing 76-55 road win.  Perhaps more than any of New England’s six states, the talent tends to be top-heavy in… READ MORE >

Up next in our series of state association previews is Maine, where we are almost already at the mid-season point.  We got a good look at a number of these players earlier this fall at the Maine Open Gym Series and have seen many of those standouts go on to have successful high school seasons thus far.  Of all the northern New England states, Maine is the strongest, both in terms of the talent of their top individual players as… READ MORE >

Names to Know in the RIIL

Names to Know in the RIIL

Posted Thursday, January 2nd, 2020

The fourth in a six-part series, our latest state association preview takes us to Rhode Island and the RIIL.  The Ocean State has produced some highly talented prospects over the years – from the Murphy brothers to Mike Marra to Ricky Ledo to David Duke and several others along the way – but the vast majority of them depart for the prep schools eventually.  This year there are some quality prospects to be found in the local ranks, not to… READ MORE >

New England’s All-Decade Team

New England’s All-Decade Team

Posted Tuesday, December 31st, 2019

The decade has come to a close and so it’s only appropriate that we look back on some of the top prospects to come through New England in the last ten years.  Coming up with an All-Decade Team proved to be too hard with the prevalence of the prep schools and so we trimmed it down to true New England natives who spent their entire high school careers in the region.  That means you won’t see names like Will "The… READ MORE >
