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

McCullough Tells Teammate To Save A Spot For Him

Just days after his Brewster Academy(NH) teammate Ron Patterson gave a verbal pledge to Syracuse University; Chris McCullough felt it was right to only do the same. McCullough is a Bronx, NY native who is regarded as one of the top 10 players in the class of 2014; McCullough on Monday evening became the latest New England prep player to come off the board when the 6’10 hybrid forward gave the Orangemen a verbal pledge.

In today’s game, big men shoot the 3-point shot, operate in space, and develop guard-like skills sometimes before post moves. McCullough shows flashes of all these skills and has just as much upside as anybody regardless of class.

“Syracuse showed the most love,” said McCullough on his early decision to commit.

McCullough becomes the 5th Brewster academy player to commit and Syracuse first verbal pledge in the 2014 recruiting class.

Ron Patterson

Patterson Heads Upstate

Ron Patterson, a 6-3 guard originally a part of a 2012 Indiana recruiting class that called themselves the Fab 5, has given a verbal pledge to Syracuse University.

Best known for his defense, Patterson is an athletic freak that will torch you from the perimeter with his smooth stroke and pull up game. Ron has a near 7 foot wingspan, which makes Brewster Academy guard a perfect fit in the Orangemen zone defense.

Ron Patterson is the second Brewster Academy player in recent years to take his talents to Syracuse. Sophomore wing forward CJ Fair is a Brewster alum and current Orangemen starter.

Syracuse is very much involved in the recruitment of top 10 class of 2013 prospect Noah Vonleh. Vonleh was set to visit Syracuse this past weekend but decided to reschedule the visit for a later date.


Brewster Academy “Prep Profile “

Coach Jason Smith and Brewster Academy are looking to defend their 2012 National Prep Title. Coach smith brings in a younger core of guys compared to last years older, more experienced group.

The Bobcats have some of the most versatile frontline players in New England, if not the country. With a recent commitment to NC State, Kyle Washington is a 6’10 post player with a variety of moves that will give defenders fits. Washington can play three different positions on the floor, with his ability to put the ball, knock down the 17ft jump shot and a throwback, back to the basket game.Elijah Macon(West Virginia commit)brings strength and toughness to this young Bobcats team. The athletic big man, Macon has aback to the basket game and a face up game that can draw his defender from the basket that creates easier post plays for his counterparts. Macon cleans up nice on the glass,always wanting to after it on every possession.Chris McCullough is the younger of the frontline who will benefit on getting by having to go up against Macon and Washington in practice. McCullough is a lean face up player that will utilize his time with Washington and Macon to develop a back to the basket game, and build up toughness.

Leadership on this team will come from veteran wing player John Edwards, who will be the glue guy that brings experience as a member of last years title team. Edwards who will be a captain to lead this young group has since his recruitment jump up a bit now that he has started to develop a perimeter jump shot.

A nice mix up of players at the guard position makes Brewster a very deep team. Starting with Canadian lead guard Kevin Zabo, a transfer who knows how to take care of the ball and looks to run a team before personal trying to go for his own personal stats. Jared Terrell a combo guard, who is also transfer will be a scoring option as well look to see time running the point. Terrell is a stocky guard that uses his strength to attack the basket and has a nice stroke from outside. Former Indiana commit Ron Patterson is so quick off that first step it’s hard to keep up with his combination of strength and speed. Patterson is an athletic freak that will torch you from the perimeter with his smooth stroke and pull up game. Patterson will WOW you with his acrobatic finishes going to the basket. Martez Harrison is a relatively unkown speedy guard that will be a spark off the bench.

Patrick Wallace, Zuri Pavlin, Rudolf Arnicanis and Alex Hall will crack the rotation and contribute to Brewster Academy’s title run.
