NPSI: Friday's Recaps

All three of the top teams in the country ended up with victories, but Bridgton Academy was the only one that wasn't really tested. That's because the inside-out combo of Justin Burrell and Greg Hill is difficult to stop.

The National Prep School Invitational is this weekend and there were plenty of standout performances on Friday:

Friday's Recaps

Lee Academy 84, Eldon Academy 79

Unsigned senior guard Corey Bingham scored 19 points and fellow unsigned senior Chris Baez added 16 as Lee Academy defeated Eldon, who was led by 23 points from Terrance Fraser.

IMG 52, Philadelphia Lutheran 50

Corey Higgins scored 17 points and was the only player for IMG to get into double-figures in a two-point win against Philadelphia Lutheran. Darry Schoefield's crew was led by Mike Scott (18 points).

Maine Central Institute 68, Genesis One 67

Tremayne Russell sank a game-winning 3-pointer as time expired to give MCI the one-point win. Russell finished with just seven points in the game and MCI was led by Evann Baker (Wichita State), who had 19 points. Mississippi State-bound forward Kodi Augustus had just three points and was 1-for-8 from the field.

Genesis was led by Terrance Joyner's 18 points while Brandon Cooks finished with 13 points and 9 rebounds in the losing effort.

Notre Dame Prep 72, Boys to Men 68

Michael Beasley (Kansas State) wasn't ecstatic was his play and his team's play, but he finished with 23 points and 14 boards and ND Prep came out with a close victory. Jamine Peterson, who committed to Providence just days ago, added 14 points and 6 boards for Bill Barton's club.

Boys to Men was paced by junior point guard Jeremiah Kelly, who played extremely well and scored 18 points. Kelly is one of the more underrated floor leaders in the Class of 2008. Mac Koshwal (DePaul) finished with 10 points and 11 boards and had a few terrific moves – including one where he blew by Beasley on the baseline.

Laurinburg Prep 65, St. Thomas More 63

This one was somewhat of a shocker as Laurinburg got 13 points from Casey Mitchell and a dozen from Akeem Bennett to knock off Jere Quinn's team. Devin Ebanks, one of the top juniors in the nation, finished with 27 points in the loss.

Worcester Academy 60, Massanutten Military Academy 49

Allen Aragbaye (Northeastern) had some key baskets and finished with 14 points to lead Worcester, which has been struggling this season, to a win against Massanutten. Dane Diliegro added a dozen for Ed Reilly's team.

Aaron Dobson led Massanutten with 15. Recent Texas A&M de-commit Joseph Fluce finished with just two points and seven boards.

Patterson School 86, Winchendon 80

Patterson had four players in double-figures – Dwight Hardy (18), Dominique Sutton (17), Tirrell Baines (12) and Jeremy Hazell (12) – as Patterson fought off Winchendon for the win.

Chris Turner played well in the losing effort for Winchendon, finishing with 27 points. Villanova-bound guard Malcolm Grant had 21.

Bridgton Academy 105, Stoneridge Prep 83

Justin Burrell (St. John's) was terrific, finishing with 18 points and 8 boards while unsigned senior guard Greg Hill led the team with 26 points on a handful of 3-pointers. Angelo Johnson, a junior point guard out of Minnesota, scored 22 for Stoneridge.

Toronto Academy 65, Humble Christian Life Academy 63

D. J. Wright led TAPS with 19 points and four trifectas while DeAndre Jordan scored 14 points, grabbed a half-dozen boards and had six blocks in the losing effort for Christian Life.
