EJ Dambreville BABC South- The powerful and explosive Athlete who will be attending Woodstock Academy next year led BABC South to a huge upset win over Castle Athletics scoring 28 points.
Tommy O’Neil Middlesex Magic- The southpaw has continued to develop his game over the past year and has proven himself to be a scholarship level player. O’Neil at 6’7 can score with his back to the basket as well as from the wing.
Thomas Shaughnessy Middlesex Magic- Shaughnessy makes his presence felt with his toughness and scrappiness but the Needham product is a true floor general who makes his teammates better and is capable of scoring with the best of them.
Souleymane Koureissi Castle Athletics- With Minnesota, Rhode Island, and Tulane there to name a few of the many schools, the 6’9” long athletic wing proved he is capable of playing at that level with his skill set and athleticism.
LaShawn Smith Waterbury Basketball Academy- Arguably the breakout performer of the tournament the 6’7” this prospect showed a complete skill set and dropped 28 points scoring from all 3 ranges.
Matt Simpson Tampa Titans- The 6’0” point guard from Tampa made his presence known getting into the lane and making plays and scored an impressive 31 points I a Tamp Titans win!
Matt Cross BABC 2020- Arguably one of the best 2020 players in New England proved his talents. The big wing uses his strong frame and finishes through contact but can pull the defense out to the 3 point line and hit from long range.
Gob Gabriel DC Blue Devils 2019- Gabriel is starting to make a name for himself this weekend. The point forward has a smooth handle and finishes well around the hoop but also makes great reads with his passes. As he continues to develop his game over the next year expect this 2019 product to see an increase in his recruitment.
Ronnie Silva DC Blue Devils 2018- The 5’9” point guard has created a lot of buzz among college coaches this weekend. He sees the floor extremely well always seeming to make the right pass. Silva can also score from way downtown knocking deep threes.
Nick Timberlake Metro Boston- The athletic guard will be attending Kimball Union as a post grad and with the extra year should really see his recruitment hit new levels. Timberlake attacks the rim with the best of them but can also shoot it from three.
