NEW TOP 10/ WEEKLY AWARDS AND VIDEO

 

That loud roar you heard last week across the East Coast was the Shore Conference. In a week that saw the Shore Conference rip though the states ranked team. We saw two other Shore teams go outside the state and do exactly the state thing. We also saw Ocean County join the big girl club.

 

THE ROUND UP-

THE SHOWED WHY IT’S THE BEST CONFERENCE IN AMERICA

SJV let everyone know once again, they don’t rebuild they reload. SJV was down by 5 with a minute left against #9 University when MADDIE DORING knocked down a three and SARA  KARPELL stole a pass moments later and scored to seal a win for SJV. But the Lancer’s were far from done as they beat the #3 team Rutgers Prep and #4 ranked Franklin in the same week. In case your not counting, that’s 3 wins over ranked teams in 7 days…SJV was beastly.

 

Manasquan as if not to be out done by SJV beat two ranked teams. First they defeated Lodi Immaculate and then blew out Saddle Day River. They lead by 26 points when Lisa Kukoda emptied her bench. Saddle Day once again to pad their stats. It’s nice to see the state writers are catching on and making mention of this fact. Dara Marbey had a career high 38 as the Triangle of Death keep living bodies all over the state.

 

RUMSON FAIR HEAVEN continues to defy the odds. After the Bulldogs were manhandled by Rutgers Prep, they bounced back and knocked off Franklin. Tori Hyduke who struggled in the first half finished with 28 points. But she got lots of support from her backup cast. RFH continues to be the surprise team of the year.

 

TOM RIVER NORTH jumped all over #13 Ewing as if they stole money from them. They blew the doors of the Trenton team. Brielle Bigsono had 29 points and was sensational all day. Her side kick Jenna Paul kicked in with 16 points and 9 rebounds. TRN lost the biggest game in Ocean County in years to Manchester the following night,which put a damper on their holidays.

 

MANCHESTER was a force in the WOBM as they cruised to the title. In an anticipated match-up with Toms River North, Manchester put on a show for the Ocean County faithful. Freshman Destiny Adams walked away with the MVP but it was Karmeri Reynolds and Dakota Adams great play vs Middletown South which allowed everyone to witness the greatness of Destiny Adams the next day. Manchester most likely will be ranked in the Top 20 for the first time in the schools history.

 

RBC won the Diamond Classic by outlasting two ranked teams from Delaware. In the Championship game they defeated #2 ranked Conrad Sciences in a war. In one of the physical games I’ve ever seen. KATIE RICE knocked down a big Three and later got a offensive rebound on a miss free throw to seal the win. ROSE CAVERLY was the tournament MVP.

 

ST. ROSE took on three of the best teams in the country. In game one  they saw the impact of not having Coach Chambers. They were up 10 points with 3 mins left and no shot clock only to lose to Ohio mega Powerhouse Pickerington Central at the buzzer. It was a painful  lost, when you consider Pickerngton beat National Power Mater Dei of CA to win the title. St Rose beat National super powers St. Antony’s of Cali and Ursuline in there other 2 games. St Rose was  3 mins away from being ranked Nationally in the Top 10…they are waiting for the return of Coach Chambers.

 

DONOVAN CATHOLIC fell big time, when its leader Paige Slaven was rushed to the hospital last week. Catholic got drilled by TRE as Joydan Madigan had 18 points on a her way to the WOBM ALL TOURNAMENT TEAM. They then lost by 2 points to Brick 2 nights later. It was a rough holiday as they will try to regroup after the holidays.

 

JACKSON MEMORIAL keeps getting better as they won there Holiday Tournament. KRISTINA DONZA had 20 points int title game. Bianca Giordano added a team-high nine assists with five points, six rebounds. They are a team to keep a eye on because of all the young talent. Danni Evans who is just a junior has a chance to be special, giving them 3 very talented players.

Top AAU Tournaments for Recruiting

For more than a half-century, Hoop Group has been an undisputed leader in basketball skills instruction as well as the premier venue for showcasing the very best amateur teams and talent, while offering many other basketball-related services. Besides featuring the absolute ‘cream of the crop’ among high school hoopsters, Hoop Group has also featured  legendary players such as: Lou Carnesecca, Al McGuire, Geno Auriemma, Jim Valvano, Rollie Massimino, Dean Smith, Pat Summitt, and Bob Hurley, Sr., as instructors/lecturers at various basketball clinics, training camps, and AAU tournaments.

Headquartered in Neptune, New Jersey, Hoop Group’s long proven record of providing the very best in basketball instruction, competition, and exposure is unmatched. The number of young men and women who’ve been positively impacted by the company’s mission over fifty plus years is well in excess of a million, and among its alumni is a ‘Who’s Who’ list of All-Americans, NBA Draft Lottery picks (including No. 1 picks Dwight Howard, John Wall, Kyrie Irving, Markelle Fultz), NBA All-Stars, and even Hall of Famers (Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Julius Erving, Moses Malone, David Thompson, Nancy Lieberman, Ann Meyers, and Charles Barkley). Currently, there are more than 200 Hoop Group alumni on NBA and WNBA rosters.

Undeniably, the lifeblood of college athletics is recruiting, and perhaps the sport in which recruiting is most impactful, is basketball. Unlike college football and baseball, one or more 5-star, blue chip basketball recruit(s) can transform a ‘good’ team into a championship contender immediately. Players such as Louisville’s Pervis Ellison (1986), Syracuse’s Carmelo Anthony (2003), Kentucky’s Anthony Davis (2012), and Duke’s Jahlil Okafor (2015) are evidence of this, with each playing pivotal roles in leading their schools to national championships in their freshman seasons.

With potentially elite players being recognized earlier and earlier, the competition among coaches for landing top prospects has also ramped up considerably. Where once the primary recruiting period took place during the traditional high school season (late fall through winter), the dramatic increase in AAU basketball tournaments, summer basketball camps, and basketball exposure camps has transformed recruiting into a year-round pursuit. There are advantages to this development, especially for college recruiters. The best players are competing with and against the ‘best’, giving college coaches an ‘up-close-and-personal’ insight into such intangibles as teamwork, maturity level, and composure, while having multiple top prospects in one location is an obvious ‘win-win’ on every level, for both coaches and players.

Hoop Group’s history in providing top-notch youth basketball training for boys and girls of all ages is unsurpassed, and their success record in the area of player development is almost staggering, with more than 75% of attendees either receiving college scholarships and/or competing at the collegiate level. Hoop Group’s reputation is also supported by the fact that nearly 1,000 college coaches/recruiters and recruiting services are regularly in attendance at their showcase exposure events and tournaments.

2017 Recent Shore Girls Basketball Scrimmage Match Ups

 

This week I had a chance to take in a few scrimmages. I wanted to get a look at the Top teams before my first ranking. Tomorrow I will get my first look at St. Rose and SJV two powerhouse teams.

There is zero question in my mind that RBC can win the SCT or TOC. They really have all the pieces in place. The RBC chemistry and senior leadership was as impressive as their shooting. Hayley Moore and Rose Caverly were murder from the arc. Sophia Sabino the freshman point guard, was very impressive on both sides of the ball. A real concern has to be when Katie Rice  is not on the floor . Fab Eggenshwiler was most likely going to be the 5th starter and she is out with a injury.

I thought RFH was in full blown rebuilding mode. But Monday they blew me away, as they dominated Middletown South at times. Tori Hyduke was on a whole different level than anyone in the gym. Lucy Adams, did just about anything you could ask a sophomore to do. Grace Munt showed she’s ready for prime time. Middletown South are the walking wounded, they entire starting five with the expectation of Stephanie Mayerhoffer. So we really won’t know about them for another week or two. They clearly have the talent to be a special group. Tom Brennan is on the sidelines, so you can expect major improvements.

RBR was so well coaches it shocked it me. It made me remember how good Coach John Turhan is at getting kids to preform above their talent level. TRN was also very impressive, they showed many different looks on defense. They also can really score the ball, Jenna Paul, Brille Bisgono and Amanda Johnson can play with anyone. They are a Top 20 team and could be Top 10 with a few breaks.
