Brewster Tops Northfield Mount Hermon 86-58

 

The defending NEPSAC AAA champions has had its best games against Brewster dating back to last years league championship.  In the first match up of the season NMH used that same momentum to come away with the 73-71 win.

Brewster Academy figured they would try something new for this game, they decided to commit on defense and not allow the other team to score easy baskets. Brewster challenged each and every shot that NMH attempted, which gave them a commanding halftime score of 44-16. Martez Harrison led Brewster at the half with 10 points, while Jared Terrell added 9 points. 44-16

Coming out of the half NMH decided to try something different, inserting 2015 Jahshanti Allen, and 2015 Daquon Ervin into the line up. These two are fun to watch as they where a two man defensive nightmare. There havoc allowed NMH to get within arms reach.

Second half Ron Patterson the Syracuse commit ignited Brewster by going on a scoring tier to keep NMH at bay. NMH would go down easy as Michael Flemming (Dartmouth commit) went on a scoring drive scoring 12 second half points to keep NMH alive.

At the end Brewster prevailed as they win 86-58

2012 NEPSAC AAA Coach of the Year Jason Smith

   Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, NH is home to the 2010 and 2012 Boys Basketball National Prep Champions. We recently caught up with coach Jason Smith who talked to us about his program and what it represents.

    Brewster Academy had 35 alumni in NCAA Division 1 program during the 2009-10 academic year. Brewster Academy currently has 2 players in the NBA at the current moment(Xavier Silas, Craig Brackins) and 2 who are projected to be selected in this years NBA Draft(Thomas Robinson, Will Barton).  Coach Smith has accomplished a lot in his 12 years with the program also being named the 2012 NEPSAC Class AAA Coach of the Year and deservingly so after Averaging 29 wins per season the past 4 years. The basketball program at Brewster Academy is NOT a basketball factory, players from his program attend high academic institutions such as Harvard, Brown, Cornell, Vanderbilt to name a few. Coach Smith is real big on “No Books, No Ball” as many coaches around the country are and should be.

   Having to attend a private school as a youth and completing a post grad year himself Caoch Smith knows the process that some of his Student-Athletes are dealing with. “Athletics played an important role for me in both high school and college, and I knew that I wanted to follow a career path that included both athletics and education in some capacity” said Coach Smith.

Watch and Listen to Coach Smith talk about his basketball program and some alumni chime in with a few words of their own.
