After spending last season as Kyle Lofton’s protégé on Putnam Science’s National Championship squad, Diarra took his pitbull tenacity and mixed it with the confidence of a grizzled vet in ’18-‘19. The 6’4” PG/Wing wreaked havoc defensively and on the boards with his 6’10” wingspan while improving exponentially as a shooter. Diarra finished the season averaging 14.2 points, 5 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.2 steals while shooting 48% FG/37% 3pt/70% FT…After boosting his stock late in the summer and signing with UConn in the fall, Bouknight only had to worry about making things happen on the court. The top prospect in New England’s 2019 class –IMHO- finished his prep career by averaging 23.8 pts/4.8 reb/4 stl/2.2 ast and shooting 54% FG/44% 3pt/78% FT this season…Ironically, the last day of Brewster’s wild ’18-’19 ride was as calm as the waters of Lake Winnipesaukee on a sunny June afternoon. Thanks to the steady Point Guard play of Brown, the other-worldly athleticism of Lecque and the maturation of Clarke’s game in a handful of ways, Brewster captured the 2019 National Championship with sound beatings of Massanutten and Scotland in the semi's and the finals. Brown’s buzzer-beater against Woodstock was the last bit of drama for Jason Smith’s squad while Lecque’s MVP performance put the finishing touches on Brewster’s 6th National Championship….Goodine surpassed 2,000 points for his career on a tomahawk dunk in late-December, then finished the season by leading St. Andrew’s to the NEPSAC-AA Championship and being named the Conference’s Player of the Year and Tournament MVP…Mitchell was Woodstock’s rock for a 2nd year in a row, averaging 19 points and 9 rebounds while making major improvements to his outside stroke. He’ll choose between Providence, Virginia Tech, Indiana, UMass, Syracuse and Georgia Tech in the coming months…It’s fitting that Adams-Woods and Torrence are together on the 1st Team after the duo led the Albany City Rocks to the Elite-8 at Peach Jam this past summer. Adams-Woods did everything coach Nick Whitmore asked of him throughout the season, whether he had to score 30 points or facilitate for a rotation that stayed in a constant state of flux. Torrence averaged 19.4 pts/10.2 reb/5.8 ast on 49% FG/45% 3pt/86% FT for Vermont this year…Buie was a threat to drop 40 or ruin an opposing team’s defensive scheme with his vision on any given night. The 6’3” marksmen saw the majority of his time on the ball as a playmaker this year, something Chris Collins would love to see him do in the Big Ten next season.


Enoch Cheeks, 6’4” PG/Wing, Kimball Union (transferred to Putnam Science ‘20)

Ismael Massoud, 6’8” Wing, MacDuffie/WAKE FOREST

Tyler Burton, 6’6” Wing, Marianapolis/RICHMOND

Idan Tretout, 6’3” PG/Wing, Wilbraham & Monson/HARVARD

Daman Tate, 6’5” Wing, Cushing ‘19

Tyson Etienne, 6’2” PG/Wing, Putnam Science/WICHITA STATE

Noah Fernandes, 6’1” Point Guard, Woodstock/WICHITA STATE

Byron Breland III, 6’5” Wing, Hamden Hall/NJIT

Noah Kamba, 6’1” Point Guard, Dexter/MURRAY STATE

Alonzo Gaffney, 6’10” Wing, Brewster/OHIO STATE

Tretout put together some of the best individual performances that I caught all season. The Harvard-commit will combine with Ledlum to give Tommy Amaker a battle-tested duo that will be ready to contribute immediately…Cheeks was averaging an efficient 29 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists until KUA’s season got cut short…Burton and Breland shared the NEPSAC-B Player of the Year Award…On the strength of removing some of the hitch from his jumper, Massoud averaged over 20 points and 5 rebounds for a MacDuffie team that went 13-2 in AA play during the regular season…Tate made the most of his senior season and now holds offers from Gardner-Webb (2019 Big South Champ), Richmond and Boston University...Etienne and Fernandes will team up at Wichita State next season where their ability to be equally effective playing on/off the ball should compliment one another's game nicely


Mitch Doherty, 6’8” Big, Worcester/ALBANY

Matt Cross, 6’7” Wing, Woodstock ‘20

Cairo McCrory, 6’6” Wing, Master’s ‘20

Jordan Kellier, 6’6” Big/Wing/PG, Redemption ‘19

Benson Lin, 6’4” PG/Wing, St Andrew’s/MANHATTAN

Greg Dolan, 6’4” Point Guard, Northfield-Mt Hermon ‘19

Jordan Jones, 6’5” Wing, Exeter/CORNELL

Wildens Leveque, 6’9” Big, Gould/SOUTH CAROLINA

Max Lorca, 6'9" Big, Northfield-Mt Hermon/PENN

Bas Leyte, 6’10” Big, New Hampton ‘20

McCrory was at his best against some of the nation’s top teams, averaging 29.3pts/10.3rebs vs Brewster, Putnam and NMH. Those numbers were even more impressive than the 6’6” wing’s season marks, where he averaged 22.6pts/5reb/2.8ast/2.8stl…Kellier was a triple-double threat every time he took the floor for Redemption. The Jamaica-native showcased his versatility while averaging 18.9pts/13.6reb/7.8ast on the year and did anything that was asked of him on a nightly basis…Lorca finished his career as NMH’s all-time leader in Wins (121), Blocks (324) and FG% (71%). Many of his 10pts/8.3reb/3.7blk this season came while running with Dolan, who finished his post-grad year at NMH averaging 12.5pts/5.8ast/4.6reb/2.3stl for the AAA Champs…Jones was the NEPSAC-A Player of the Year after leading Exeter to the 2019 conference title
