2016 Hoop Dreams Magazine Prep Classic (Day 1)

Mamadou Diarra (2016) – had a big day today scoring 23 points and pulling down 12 rebounds in a win against Jean De Brebeuf. Diarra wowed spectators with a number of above the rim finishes. Including a big 19 point first half. The UCONN commit will have the fans in Storrs, CT excited about UCONN basketball when he gets to campus.

Azar Swain (2017) – in the second match up of the day had the best scoring performance on Day 1. Swain poured in 48 points scoring from long range like an everyday prospect makes a lay up. It looked that easy for the young guard.

Geo Baker (2017) – had a slow start to the game against Redemption Christian Academy turned things around in the second half and finished with 22 points to lead Proctor Academy in a win.

Dimencio Vaughn (2016) – Vaughn of Masters School is a hard working prospect who never let up once he got it going. The Rider commit could not be stopped and had an answer for Rivers every time the Red Wings would make a run.

Miye Oni (2016)  – the Yale commit Miye Oni is a stud. The 6-foot-7 Suffield Academy forward makes it look so easy. Oni had the gym buzzing with the play of the day as he rose to the basket and went chest to chest with the defender and finished with a loud dunk. But what blew the roof off the rim was the assist at the end of the game to teammate Garrett Stephenson for the game winning lay up. Oni finished with 31 points

Elijah Campbell (2016) – Hard to believe that Campbell is being under recruited. The Bridgton Academy prospect is a very heads up guard who really takes care of the ball and has a good shot selections. Never rushed and always poised. Campbell finished with 21 points on the day.

Chris Duarte (2017) – Duarte of Redemption Christian Academy let the game come to him today. Duarte finished with 19 points and a hand full of assists. Being able to use his length to finish with the floater when driving in the lane or shooting it from the outside. Duarte got the job done in many ways

Olivier Cadieux (2016) – Jean De Brebeuf’s Cadieux can play with the best of them. The Jean De Brebeuf guard put up 22 points shooting the ball very well on the day
