Hamidou Diallo Has Bounce!

Ranked 11th in the country, Hamidou Diallo lived up to his ranking last weekend at the St. Andrew's Holiday Classic.  The 6 foot 5 guard for Putnam Science Academy helped lead his team to a blowout 81-59 win over Wenyen Gabriel and Wilbraham & Monson.  Only a junior now, Diallo still has room for his game to improve but he already boasts offers from  UConn, Kansas, Louisville, NC State, Syracuse, and more.  Stay tuned as the season continues for more highlights from one of the nations best players.

Preston Santos Put On A Show at the Battle of the States

Last weekend Preston Santos put his skill set on display at the Battle of the States.  Santos pitched in 15 points, a putback dunk, and more great plays. His team Bishop Hendricken (RI) still came just short of a win against Cathedral High School (MA).  Hendricken made a late run after leading most of the game, but in the final seconds the lead fell into Cathedral's hands.  Although Santos and Co. lost 57-56, he put on a full display of his ability.  Not only did the athletic wing show off his ability to get to the basket, but he also exhibited his long range jumper.  After an impressive summer with Expressions Elite, Santos is ready to take his game to the next level.  Thus far, it seems Preston Santos has begun to make the journey to become an elite player.

Tremont Waters May Be Small, But His Game is Anything But

Last weekend Tremont Waters dominated at the Zero Gravity Prep Classic.  The 5 foot 11 point guard for South Kent scored 41 points on Friday night and then dropped 28 points the next day in front of Kentucky's John Calipari.  He currently boasts offers from UConn, Purdue, Seton Hall, St. John's, Wake Forest, and Yale. Stanford, Indiana, and many other high majors have also shown interest in the lightning-quick guard. Currently only a junior, Waters has plenty of time to increase his stock to the next level.  He is currently ranked around 30th in the country by most sources.  If he continues to play the way he did last weekend, look for Waters to rise through the rankings.

A Boston Homecoming

Last Wednesday night, Boston native Nisre Zouzoua returned home to play in front of his family.  Now an emerging freshman on the roster at Bryant University, - in Smithfield, Rhode Island - Zouzoua is becoming one of their go to players.  He came in this summer with a chip on his shoulder after playing with Boston Trinity and Expressions Elite in his highschool career.  Although he was not in the starting 5 when he arrived at Bryant, his hard work and skill propelled him there once the season began.  Zouzoua is expected to be one of the top freshman in the NEC this year, and over the next few years he is going to emerge as a star for Bryant University.

Although it was exciting to see Zouzoua come home, the excitement was outweighed by Harvard's athletic play that led them to an 80-45 win.  Tommy McCarthy scored 16 points and collected 8 assists for the Crimson on their way to victory.
