Niagara Falls Guard Has Coaches Watch

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story on a player from Niagara Falls High School from Hunter College ...

It was a big weekend of basketball in the New York City area. The Big Apple organization put on a great weekend of basketball at both Baruch and Hunter College in Manhattan.

Yesterday afternoon, Niagara Falls High School met up with Rice High School. The previous day, Niagara Falls defeated talented Cardozo High School of Bayside, New York. But the task of staying with a high-pressured full-court defense was too much for Niagara Falls in the second half.

On hand were several programs scouting the many talented players at the event. Rashon Tabb, a 6-foot-2 shooting guard from Niagara Falls is being closely watched by several programs.

Among the programs on hand to watch different players and perhaps Tabb were St. Francis of New York, Providence College, Connecticut, and Virginia. Tabb is a player who already has listed Providence College high on his list.

Will the Friars make a solid offer? It's clear that Buffalo and Duquesne have made offers. Remember, Tabb is a 2008 prospect and won't be able to sign a letter of intent until next Fall. So there's plenty of time to make a decision for Tabb as well as the colleges recruiting him.

Tabb had previously stated recruiting interest also in Seton Hall, Rutgers, Georgetown, Penn State, St. John's and Pittsburgh.

Tabb had 13 points in yesterday's game against Rice High School, including two three-pointers. But a game like yesterday isn't a proper measuring stick to see Tabb's value as a shooter.
