East Coast Index Top 40 @ May 1st Big 60

I thought “electric” was a great way to describe the event and the talent level. Justin Thomas From Newark Charter in Delaware had 2 open court dunks in his first rotation which set the pace for the day!
Ethan Houston the 6’8 post player from Carlisle scored going right and left in the post as well as stepping out to shoot the 3! Bryan Karl the versatile 6’5” lefty from Hempfield had the Lebanon Valley College staff watching intently during his final game. Jaden Faulkner from Eleanor Roosevelt in Maryland showed his athleticism with a variety of double pumps while shooting it well throughout the day. Here are my “Top40” for the event.
