HoopHall - Top Upperclassmen Performances

For the next two days we're going to take a look back at the 2017 HoopHall Classic and dissect some of the best individual performances we saw from local New England talent. Here's a look at the best of the upperclassmen:

​Tremont Waters, Notre Dame-West Haven (CT) - His stat line (29 points, 7 assists, 5 steals, 4 rebounds) was extremely impressive but didn't tell anywhere near the entire story. The buttom line is that Waters had his fingerprints on almost every aspect of Notre Dame's win over one of the most talented teams in the greater New York City area - which featured three sure fire high-major prospects in Cole Anthony, Moses Brown, and Khalid Moore. It wasn't just his tough shot-making, or the timeliness of it, but the way in which he pulled the strings of the entire show for Notre Dame. He allowed others to get involved, showed no frustration when they tried shots they shouldn't, and in so doing gave them confidence to make plays down the stretch. In short, it may have...

HoopHall - Top Underclassmen Performances


Yesterday NERR profiled the top five upperclassmen performances (from local New England prospects) at the HoopHall Classic. Today, here are the five underclassmen that impressed me the most:

Taelon Martin ’19- Putnam Tech.: We’re used to seeing him on the perimeter during the grassroots season, but being one of Putnam’s tallest guys he’s forced to play inside more than we’re used to. He has definitely embraced this role and learned how to excel at it, for himself and his team. He didn’t have a super flashy game full of big shots and crossovers, but managed to score a game high 27 points in a new variety of ways. He used his height to his advantage to make some strong moves in the post and get other put-backs, all of which is only going to add to the overall versatility of his game.

Yags’ Point Forward - Regular Season Rundown

Believe it or not, we’re already on the verge of wrapping up another prep season here in New England as the six state associations and the NEPSAC head into their final regular season games over the next few weeks. Here’s a look at some of the conference races and individual games with postseason implications heading down the stretch.

Class AAA
Brewster remains undefeated and continues to put more distance between themselves and the rest of the pack with each passing week. Jason Smith’s clinched the regular season championship last week with a 93-87 win over New Hampton and have won their conference games by an average of 20-points per

Yags’ Point Forward - All New England Team

Heading into the New England state associations’ championship weekend, I’ve been able to attend 193 prep games throughout New England, NYC and the backwoods of Pennsylvania so far this season. The overwhelming majority of those games featured Power-5 Conference and NEPSAC AAA/AA programs. With that in mind, I’m going to draw from that specific pool of players for my 2017 MVP’s and All-New England Team.

Yags’ Point Forward - NEHF Review/Sneaker Preview

Yags’ Point Forward - NEHF Review/Sneaker Preview

The grassroots season kicked of last weekend in New England as the best programs from the northeast gathered at The University Sports Complex in Hanover, MA.

This was the first time the Class of 2018 had an opportunity to show out as true upperclassmen. They took full advantage of the big stage and laid a solid foundation for the remainder of their final season of grassroots ball. The NEHF also serves as a preview for what we can expect from local teams heading into the spring and summer months.

Yags’ Point Forward - NEHF Review/Travel Preview
After breaking down New England's five sneaker sponsored programs in the last week, Mike Yagmin now turns his focus to some of the other top travel programs in the region - who again showed at the Northeast Hoops Festival that they're more than capable of playing with anyone, sneaker team or not.

After taking home both the varsity and 10th grade division championships at the Northeast Hoops Festival, Mike Crotty’s Middlesex Magic program looks primed to compete again this year. Thomas Shaughnessy is a nails-tough floor general who just picked up his first D1 offer from Army within the last few weeks and is guaranteed to have an entire crew of fans from within the basketball industry before the grassroots season is over. 6’8” Tommy O’Neill looked smooth and comfortable whenever he was asked to be the Magic’s point guard at the NEHF. O’Neill’s improvement is a reflection of his work ethic and the freedom he’s being given to expand his game in every phase is going to help him Middlesex win games

Yags’ Point Forward - Impressions from Indy


Both the Under Armour and Nike grassroots circuits took their second sessions to Indianapolis last weekend. Local teams and prospects put themselves on display in front of scores of high-major college coaches during the NCAA Live Period and proved, once again, that New England currently has some of the toughest and most talented young men in the nation.

Expressions Makes a Statement, Still Far From Satisfied

After finishing 3-1 in the EYBL’s opening session,

Yags’ Point Forward - Providence Jam Fest Recap

The Providence Jam Fest was held at Rhode Island College this past weekend, with The Hoop Group showcasing a handful of their HGSL programs alongside dozens of other prominent grassroots clubs from the northeast. It resulted in a ton of good basketball and an extremely competitive environment.

PLAYAZ TAKE 17U TITLE

The New England Playaz 17U squad has made one heck of a statement heading into the summer months, going a perfect 8-0 on the Adidas circuit and running through the competition last weekend, with a depleted roster, to win the Providence Jam Fest.
