Suffield’s Oni Sets NPSI Record

Miye Oni 2016

Posted Friday, February 5th, 2016

CoxHub.com began their live coverage from the National Prep School Invitational on Thursday night and the final game of the triple-header saw a record breaking performance.

Suffield Academy post-graduate and Yale commit Miye Oni was credited with 52 points in the official game book, an all-time high at the NPSI. Perhaps even more impressive than the final total though was his second-half outburst as he scored 34 points after halftime. Oni finished the game with a total of 11 three-pointers and shot 17-24 from the field.

Oni's incredible performance allowed Suffield to pull away down the stretch in a game that was tied at halftime.

CoxHub's NPSI coverage continues on Friday with another triple-header scheduled for a 5pm tip as a red-hot Cushing Academy team takes on Sunrise Christian Academy. The AAA battle between South Kent and New Hampton is on tap next at 6:30pm followed by Putnam Science Academy vs. Hill Academy at 8pm.

Below are some of Friday's top highlights:

Rider Strikes Prep Market Again

Tyere Marshall 2016

Posted Monday, February 1st, 2016

Putnam Science Academy post-graduate Tyere Marshall made a verbal commitment to Rider University on Monday, marking the second time the New Jersey based MAAC school has landed a New England prep product in as many months. 

Marshall follows in the footsteps of Dimencio Vaughn, a southpaw swingman from the Master's School who pledged to Rider last month. 

The 6-foot-8 Marshall came to PSA from Martin Luther King High School in Philadelphia, where he started to make a name for himself last year as a senior before running with the Philly Pride on the UAA (Under Armour Association) circuit. 

He earned initial offers from High Point and Wagner this summer before Canisius and Rider both came calling following the July live period. UNC Greensboro offered after watching a PSA open gym this fall. 

A savvy lefty who can play both with his back to the basket or facing up, Marshall has dramatically improved his conditioning in the last six months while also extending his game away from the...

Commitment Catch-Up

Commitment Catch-Up

Posted Monday, February 1st, 2016

Three local Massachusetts products have recently ended their respective recruitments and are now staying in New England to play college basketball for the next four years. 

Woburn's Mat Catizone, who is putting up huge numbers during his senior season and starred with the Middlesex Magic AAU program last spring and summer, took to his twitter account on Friday to announce that he'll play at Endicott College in Beverly beginning next season. 

A playmaking guard with plenty of burst off the bounce and similar talents on the defensive end of the floor, Catizone should be able to make an immediate impact in the CCC under second year head coach Kevin Bettencourt. 

At Beaver Country Day, head coach Juan Figueroa saw two of his seniors recently commit to high academic schools as Kyle Padmore will move on to Trinity College and Kent Ellerston to...

Rankings Week Rewind

Rankings Week Rewind

Posted Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Last week was Rankings Week in New England as we rolled out updated rankings in the classes of 2016, 2017 and 2018 throughout a three day period.

Tuesday marked the launch of our expanded 2016 rankings including an expanded top 100 as well as the debut of Wenyen Gabriel as the top ranked prospect in the region.

Wednesday was the day for the class of 2017, where Hamidou Diallo continues to lead the way. The junior class rankings include a top 40 for all of New England as well as lists in each of the region's states as well.

Finally, the class of 2018 was updated to close the week, but the one thing that didn't change was A.J. Reeves' spot atop New England's top 30 sophomores.

Here's a look back at all the week's contest:

2018 Rankings Update

2018 Rankings Update

Posted Friday, January 29th, 2016

Rankings week in New England continues with an update to our recently released 2018 rankings.

The sophomore rankings debuted in late November after our staff spent the fall observing the Elite 75 Frosh/Soph as well as the Zero Gravity Fall Circuit. In the two months since, we've used the first half of the high school season to check-in on first year prep products like Putnam Science Academy's Eric Ayala and Darnell Brodie, and Loomis Chaffee's Nelson Boachie-Yiadom, who are now making their first appearance in the rankings as a result. 

While the rest of the list remains unchanged - Brimmer & May's A.J. Reeves remains the top ranked prospect in the class followed by Northfield Mount Hermon's Nate Laszewski, St. Andrew's Cole Swider and Marlboro's Chris Doherty - there are two notable exceptions. Milton Academy's Cormac Ryan and Beaver Country Day's Shandon Brown have drastically exceeded expectations in the first half of the high school season and thus earned a bump on this list.

Brown arrives at Putnam Science Academy

Zach Brown 2017

Posted Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

ESPN 60 center and recent UConn commit Zach Brown arrived at Putnam Science Academy earlier this week and is set to make his debut with the Mustangs for Saturday night's 7pm home game against Lee Academy.

Brown joins PSA after previously attending Miami Beach High School where he averaged 18 points, 17 rebounds and 9 blocks last season.

The 7-footer joins senior big man Mamadou Diarra as the second UConn commit in the PSA program as well as fellow junior Hamidou Diallo, who is one of the Huskies' top priorities in the class of 2017.

Brown committed to UConn last week following his most recent unofficial visit to their campus. He also attended the Spalding Hoophall Classic and visited Putnam Science Academy's campus during that trip and transferred to PSA exactly a week later.

Brown is currently a true junior and consequent member of the class of 2017 but could potentially be on track for an earlier graduation and move up to the 2016 class according to Scout.com's Evan Daniels.

2017 Rankings Announced

Hamidou Diallo 2017

Posted Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Following up on the release of updating rankings in the class of 2016 yesterday, today marks the release of updated rankings in the class of 2017, including all six states as well as New England as a whole.

The top four remains unchanged as Putnam Science Academy guard Hamidou Diallo remains the #1 junior in the region followed by a pair of point guards in Cushing Academy’s Makai Ashton-Langford and South Kent’s Tremont Waters. River School’s Jermaine Samuels is the fourth nationally ranked product in the class.

In total, the class of 2017 appears to be the best in New England at the moment as there is star power and depth alike, especially given the addition of new prospects to the prep ranks and the emergence of other local products in recent months.

CoxHub has profiled both some of the most notable newcomers and stock-risers to the 2017 rankings.

The 2017 class already features more than 15 players with high-major offers currently on the table and more than 20 others with early...
