East  Coast Index   June 3rd

This crop of talent was very skilled and excellent in the transition game! Joseph Wright out of Westminster, MD was a skilled big who get to the rim off the bounce. Matthew Lucas of Quakertown and Avery Richardson of Appoquinimink, DE were skilled combo guards who scored a variety of ways. Finally another 6’7 gem was Phillip Hughes from Marysville, OH. He could handle and shoot it as well! I will see you Aug. 12th for our next event at Spooky Nook in Manheim, PA! Here are the rest of my “Top 25”!
