Holy Cross Forward Is Worth A Look

Reporter Frank Mantesta has a story on Tim Beinert ...

Tim Beinert, a 6-foot-6, 230-pound forward/center from Holy Cross High School in Flushing, New York, is worth a look by division one and division two schools.

Fresh off a 13-rebound game against St. Raymond's High School of the Bronx, New York, the senior center/forward has had some mild division one interest from the Ivy League, the Patriot Leauge and the America East Conference.

Tim is not the fastest, most polished, highest jumper out there in the 2008 class, but his skill are there.

Beinert can score with his back to the basket and can finish underneath on a dump down.

He is able to get 13 rebounds and 20 points against programs like St. Raymond's because he knows how to box out and position himself to board.

Tim makes up for his athleticism by just knowing how to play the game. The leagues mentioned earlier are full of these types of players. They might need to revisit one more time a key player for Paul Gilvary's basketball program this upcoming season.

He had mentioned previous interest in Lafayette, Lehigh, Stony Brook, Boston University, St. Francis, and Columbia.
