Upstate Big Man Is Improving Each Tournament

Reporter Mike Sullivan discusses the individual game of Will Regan, who competed this past weekend at the Rumble in the Bronx ... Regan was terrific again playing for the Albany City Rocks ...

Albany City Rocks' program director/head coach Jim Hart couldn't say enough nice words about his big man Will Regan, a 6-foot-8 junior forward/center from Nichols High School in Buffalo, N.Y.

"He carried us," Hart said, after Regan produced 30 points in a quarterfinal category gold playoff win held on the campus of Fordham University.

While Regan and the Albany City Rocks AAU basketball program fell short against Team Final and Michael Gilchrist in the semis, it was apparent that Will continues to make progress in his individual game.

"He does so many things well on the court," Hart said. "He's always around the ball. He plays hard all the time. He has a great basketball IQ."

Regan had to carry the Rocks for the most part due to the absence of Tobias Harris, the 2010 star prospect from Dix Hills West High School on Long Island, N.Y. Tobias had to take some Regents so basketball took a back seat to hoops this past weekend.

But Regan was mighty tough too. He showed the ability to find open spaces in the zone to knock down the jumper. He passed well out of double teams and rebounded in traffic.

"He does everything to win a game," said Hart. "He's a great kid and fun to coach."


Virginia, Providence, Maryland, Arizona State, and Stanford, according to Hart.

Will had previously mentioned interest in Notre Dame, Penn State, and Michigan.
