East Coast Index Boys Report October 16, 2016 at Spooky Nook


The action was as fast a pace as I have seen in the 20 plus years of this event. Once the ball came off the glass…the up tempo style was on the move!

My top all around scorer for the day was Keith Swinton Jr. from Paul Roberson in Brooklyn, NY. He could score off the catch, off the bounce, or just flat out “bully” you off the dribble.

My top Post performer was Brock Burleigh out of North Penn/ Mansfield PA. He scored well with versatility.

My top 2 guards as there were many good guards were Ryan Walker out of Mifflin County, PA and Kenneth Tyree out of Friendship Tech Prep in Washington D.C.

Finally in terms of a guy who had big numbers to go with versatility…I really liked Devin Nicholson out of St. Joseph by the Sea in New York.

Here are my “Top 40” that will have the opportunity to register for the “Cream of the Crop” event on November 6th! See you in a few weeks!
