Waters Signs with LSU

Tremont Waters 2017

Posted Monday, June 5th, 2017

Notre Dame West Haven and Expressions Elite senior point guard Tremont Waters signed with LSU on Monday according to numerous reports.

Waters was the final remaining available prospect left in the ESPN 100 of 2017.

The 5-foot-10 point guard spent the first three years of his high school career starring for the South Kent School before returning home to live with his parents and attend Notre Dame.

He made an initial commitment to Georgetown back in the fall after also considering Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, and Indiana.

He decommitted from the Hoyas in March, and his recruitment was much different the second time around. Western Kentucky was rumored to be the favorite for several weeks until they signed another point guard in late May. LSU and first year head coach Will Wade made a hard late push and hosted Waters for his only official visit this past weekend. A day later, he officially signed.

Waters is one of the most skilled guards, not just in New England, but in the entire...

Ryan Picks Stanford

Ryan Picks Stanford

Posted Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Milton Academy guard Cormac Ryan announced his verbal commitment to Stanford University on Sunday night via his instagram account.

Ryan grew up in New York City and made his first appearance in New England at the 2014 Elite 75 Showcase - Frosh/Soph Edition. He returned the following June for the Stars of Tomorrow Camp, joined the Middlesex Magic for the ensuing July live period, and picked up his first divisioin I offers shortly after.

He arrived at Milton Academy in September of 2015 and by the time his sophomore season was over he had started to assert himself as one of the best 2018 prospects in New England. Last spring, he took his game to unprecedented levels with the Middlesex Magic, racked up high-major offers in bunches, and made his debut in the ESPN 60.

Instead of continuing to collect high-major offers though, Ryan made it clear early on in his process that academics would play a major part in his decision making process and zeroed in on schools like Stanford,...

#S16 All-Tournament Team - 9th Grade Division

#S16 All-Tournament Team - 9th Grade Division

Posted Sunday, June 4th, 2017

The Super 16 Showcase was loaded with talent in all age groups and the 9th grade division was no different.

The field attracted teams from New England, New York, Canada, Washington D.C. and many other places in between.

When the balls were finally done bouncing, these were the players that stood out to the NERR staff.

Keon Ambrose, YIIS Toronto – A long athlete with clear potential, Ambrose changes ends extremely well and also rebounds in traffic. He’s also an impactful defender with an ability to close-out on shooters beyond his years.

Andres Carbello, NY Jayhawks – He was the leader of a talented Jayhawks squad and virtually unstoppable combining a shifty handle, high level court vision, and acrobatic finishes at the rim. He was also a tenacious defender with quick hands and infectious energy on both ends of the court. It was no surprise he already holds three D1 offers.

Noah Delorme, PTT - Delorme challenged much bigger players without fear throughout the weekend. He displayed...

Boston Warriors/Mass Elite College Night - Event Recap

Thaddeus Allen 2017

Posted Friday, June 2nd, 2017

The Boston Warriors, in collaboration with Mass Elite,  held their annual College Night on Wednesday, showcasing players not just from their combined five 17u programs but also welcoming players from LOX and NE Blizz.

Here’s a look at who stood out:

Thaddeus Allen - Allen is a 6-4 combo guard who is a long athletic scorer that can also make passes form the post or around the perimeter. As a senior, he would be a great pickup for a D3 school or a prep as his upside is clear.

Jack Carey - Carey is a well-built wingman/slasher type who has the strength and size to take it to the basket. His wide frame allows him to compete in the post with bigger players and impact the game from all over the court. He’s also capable of hitting the corner three.

Chris Macdonald - Macdonald is a long and athletic guard out of Malden Catholic. He utilized his physical tools to not only get to the rim but also rebound over bigger and taller opponents. He also showed nice range on his shot.

Invite Only Field for this Year’s Elite 75

Invite Only Field for this Year’s Elite 75

Posted Thursday, June 1st, 2017

The Elite 75 College Showcase is returning to New England on Thursday, June 29th at WPI in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Year in and year out, the Elite 75 has proven to be the premier brand of showcases in New England and this year will be no different. In fact, we're raising the bar with a series of new features.

Just like March's Academic Elite 75, this event will have guaranteed exposure because college coaches won't just be on hand to watch, they'll actually be working the event so that they're able to personally coach the very players they are there to evaluate.

While March's event featured a staff comprised of college coaches from the NESCAC and other comparable high academic schools, the emphasis for this event will be on division II coaches and in so doing this event becomes an absolute must attend for any upperclassmen that does not currently hold a commitable division I scholarship offer.

There will be no better opportunity to play in front of more D2 coaches in New England...

#S16 All-Tournament Team - 10th Grade Division

#S16 All-Tournament Team - 10th Grade Division

Posted Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

While the 74 teams in the varsity division might have taken center stage this weekend, the 10th grade division emerged with a number of strong performances and turned out to be as deep as it was talented.

When it was all said and done the most impressive individual performances were the ones that came within the context of their team's greater success. With that in mind, here's the complete all-tournament team.

First Team All-Tournament

Tyler Kolek, Middlesex Magic –Kolek led the Magic in scoring, averaging 21ppg in an undefeated run to the championship. He made shots from distance but was also able to get into the lane and create for his teammates. Equally impressive, was his high basketball I.Q. and toughness.

Spencer Aronson, Middlesex Magic – Aronson was scoring at all three levels throughout the weekend, averaging 16ppg. His instincts and athleticism were on full display as he and Kolek asserted themselves as one of the top backcourts in the division.

#S16 All-Tournament Team - Varsisty Division

Posted Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Almost 75 teams took place in the Super 16 Showcase Varsity Division. Here's a look at some of the most impressive individual performances.

All-Tournament Championship Team

Sherif Kenney, New World – As powerful of a 2019 guard as you’ll find, Kenney was a man among boys throughout the weekend and particularly impressive on Sunday. There were moments when he simply put his team on his back and carried them to victory, creating offense at will for both himself and others while leading New World to the Quantlet Qualifier championship.

Tommy ONeil, Middlesex Magic – The Magic have been on a tear all spring long and O’Neil has been nothing but solid and consistent along the way. This weekend was a little different though as he emerged as more of a focal point for the team on both ends. The development of his motor over the years has been tremendous and that allows him to have an impact on both ends of the floor.

Nate Tabor, NY Rens – Only a freshman, Tabor’s game is mature beyond his...

#S16 Champions Crowned

Posted Monday, May 29th, 2017

The Super 16 Showcase came to a close on Sunday with champions being crowned throughout all age groups.

The Middlesex Magic were the big winners from New England as they took championships in both the varsity and 10th grade division.

It wasn't an easy path in the varsity division as they pulled away from PTT Elite in the quarterfinals and won a close battle in the semis over CT Select, but they were able to put it all together in the finals and click on all levels in the final against NY Rens 2019 team.

Thomas Shaughnessy and continued to play a leading role while Tyler Aronson solidified his spot as a key running mate in the backcourt. Up front, Patrick Harding and Thomas Greaney both showed off their recent developments. Harding looked stronger and more assertive on the block while Connolly has begun to build up his body while simultaneously showing more offensive versatility. Tommy ONeil was a model of consistency all weekend long as well.
