``It's the only camp in New England that has all the best players," said Murphy, whose school list includes UNC, Duke, Florida, UConn, BC and others. "All of the best players in New England are there and it's great competition."
All of the top players from Massachusetts are expected to participate: Troy Gillenwater, Jamaal Coombs, Andrew Van Nest and youngsters such as guards Nadir Tharpe, Nate Lubick Rodney Beldo and Joe Sharkey – as well as emerging big man Nate Lubick - have all committed.
There will be skill competitions and individual instruction in the morning from some of the top New England coaches: Winchendon's Mike Byrnes, Brewster Academy's Jason Smith, Notre Dame Prep's Bill Barton, Bridgton Academy's Whit Lesure, former Wright State head coach Paul Biancardi, East Catholic's (Conn.) Luke Reilly and Northwest Catholic's (Conn.) John Marabello.
``It's a great place where the best players in New England go for a day and challenge themselves," Barton said. "New England players need more exposure. Everyone talks about places like New York, Chicago and Baltimore – and for good reason. Events like this will help people realize that there is still plenty of talent in New England."
National talent evaluators and writers – including Tom Konchalski, Adam Finkelstein (Hoop Scoop) and Jeff Goodman (FOXSports.com) are expected to attend.
