Prep Profile - Wilbraham & Monson Academy...This year’s roster may not have such well-known names, but they have a group of driven players who are bound to make a name for themselves before the year comes to an end.The ReturnersWhile WMA is undoubtedly young this season, there still a nice nucleus of experience in the backcourt with senior Devonn Allen and the junior tandem of Idan Tretout and Dan Klosk.Allen is now finally healthy, much improved on the offensive end, and one of the better perimeter defenders in the league. Klosk is an ideal complement as a heady and skilled guard who, according to Mannix, is one of the best shooters to ever wear the red and blue.Tretout’s first season in the NEPSAC was an impressive... ... -academy-1

Prep Profile - Kimball Union Academy...Kimball Union Academy may not have some of the big names of their AA brethren, and may be a little shorter on their bench then they’ve been in years past, but head coach Mike Olson has a first 8 than can compete with anyone and is already off to a 3-0 start on the season with wins over Bradford Christian, Holderness, and Deerfield.With a pair of games coming up on the bigger stage of the Scholar Roundball Classic this weekend, KUA is looking to make a statement and announce their arrival as a team bound for the post-season this year.[i:39janc91]The Returners[/i:39janc91]It all begins with Eze Dike. A native of Montreal and early Yale pledge, Dike is in his second season with KUA. His frame is shredded beyond that of maybe any other guard in the region and his athleticism almost equally impressive. He’s a highlight waiting to happen in the... ... -academy-3

NEPSAC AA Preview...Making the post-season is a major accomplishment in Class AA as the league is ripe with teams featuring scholarship level prospects atop their roster.Want proof? Consider this, the league has produced many of New England’s top prospects in recent years – guys like Nerlens Noel, Wayne Selden, Nik Stauskas, Georges Niang, Phil Pressey, Kaleb Tarczewski, and numerous others.This year alone AA is home to 6 of the top 8 ranked prospects in New England in Simisola Shittu, Cole Swider, A.J. Reeves, David Duke, Marcus Zegarowski, and Anthony Nelson.As we’ve said all fall long, things are wide open. The defending champs, Cushing Academy, have one of the league’s best players but an otherwise young roster. The... ... -preview-3

NEPSAC A PreviewOne of the best kept secrets about New England prep school basketball is its depth. Even the casual local fans have heard of most AAA schools or some of the top players to come out of the AA ranks. What most don’t realize is that Class A is also loaded with talent.Consider this, in recent years alone the third highest league in the NEPSAC has produced one-and-done NBA first round draft picks, numerous high-major prospects, and consensus top 100 national prospects. Class A teams are loaded with college prospects, especially in the top half of the league where more often than not the vast majority of the team has a realistic chance to play at the next level.The other thing that makes Class A unique is the collective quality of the coaching as the league is ripe with former college coaches and others who do a tremendous job.Here’s a look at some of the top contenders in the class for the 2017-2018 season. ... -preview-2

NEPSAC B PreviewThe 2017-2018 season is shaping up to be an especially competitive one in Class B as the overall depth of the group will be significantly higher with new programs like Holderness, St. Luke’s, Greens Farms Academy, and Hamden Hall all joining the field.The two-time defending champions, Brooks School, remains the favorite though with unmatched experience and depth. Their progression up the Class B ranks has been a straight linear one with Final Four appearances in 2011, 2012, and 2013 followed by trips to the Finals in 2014 and 2015. They got over the hump in 2016 and won even more convincingly last year.This year, they return a senior core that includes Merrimack bound Justin Connolly, who is among the most efficient big men in the league, and Keigan Kerby, a skilled forward who is now fully healthy and joins with Connolly to create one of the top interior tandems in Class B. Jacob Iwowo, a young senior, is a long, athletic, and active wing who continues to take his game to new... ... -b-preview

NEPSAC C & D PreviewsWith a rush of the top programs from previous years having now moved up a division, Class C isn’t what is used to be. Nevertheless, there are still a handful of talented programs to be found within their ranks.Class is potentially even more scarce and yet there are still some diamonds in the rough to be found.Here’s a look at some of the teams that could be competing for a NEPSAC championship in those two divisions when the season comes to an end.Dexter School – The junior trio of Charles Coleman, Noah Kamba, and Jordan Mason gives Dexter the type of big three that is unmatched in the Class C ranks. ... d-previews
