CHASE'S THOUGHTS ON HIS INDIVIDUAL GAME AND HIS PROGRESS OVER THE SUMMER: "I'm working hard on all parts of my game. Trying to work on them in practice so I can have a big year as a senior.

"My perimeter game definitely improved. I think all around too. I made great leaps and bounds improving my leadership skills too. But I'm always looking to improve all parts of my game whether it's during the summer or during practice."

COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST: Chase will play at UMBC, a school that he should be able to have a very productive four years. Plummer is coming from one of the best high school basketball programs in the country and should be able to make an impact as a freshman.

He previously considered interest from Boston University and Quinnipiac.

"Coach Monroe and the whole UMBC family made me feel like I was back in Jersey. I also felt as if they would help me for life after basketball whenever that is."


WHAT HIS AAU COACH MATT PAULS OF TEAM NJABC THINKS OF CHASE PLUMMER'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: "He plays for a great coach (Kevin Boyle) in a great high school basketball program. He's learning everyday and that includes practice. He has some good upside to his game and I expect him to be even better by the time he's graduating high school."

EVALUATION ON CHASE PLUMMER'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: He's tough in the paint. Developing a more consistent game with his short jumper. Working on the skills to play more small forward, including ballhandling.
