The 2020 Hoop Dreams Magazine Combine along with Dana Barros Basketball Club and Next Level Factory brought together the top prospects in the region for some competitive action. A session filled with skills training, 5v5 competition, dunk contest and a all star game was an atmosphere of high level basketball. The camp produced a ton of eye popping moments in between those moment a number of student athletes stood out amongst the rest of the competition.
Kyle Hicks ’22 (New Hampton) – A human hight reel at the camp that had spectators and his peers in awe. A scoring wing with good size and most notably about Hicks is his improved ball handling ability. Has quick first step and who is only just beginning to scratch the surface of his potential.
Reid Ducharme ’23 (Nobles & Greenough) – A bouncy athlete who has great length and solid frame that makes him a active on defense. Ducharme can play anywhere between shooting guard and small forward. Loves to attack off the dribble and play above the rim.
Dominic Mello ’21 (St. George’s) – A recent Sacred Heart commit is a pass first point guard who is highly productive player and despite his size Mello cemented his place among the best at the combine.
Marvin Musiime-Kamali ’22 (Thayer Academy) – A high academic athlete who boosts a 3.8 GPA. Marvins GPA matches how high his ceiling is with an improvement in ball handling and a developed perimeter shot he’s a mismatch at both forward positions. from the free throw line down it was almost impossible from to stop Musiime-Kamali from scoring at the rim.
Austin Hunt ’23 (St. Mark’s) – A wing who raised eyebrows and earned the respect of his peers with ability to score in a number of ways. A strong slasher who can be very creative with his finishes. hunt is capable of driving to the lane ad dunking over bigger opponents. A fearless competitor who plays with a motor.
Bryce Dortch ’23 (Dexter Southfield) – A true soph who we have seen developed into a promising player. Dortch is very confident shooting from the mid range and made above the rim finishes in transition. Standing at 6-foot-8 his size and athleticism, Bryce has the ability to efficiently play small forward or power forward. A scholarship prospect with great upside.
Tre Norman ’23 (Worcester Academy) – A big guard who gets to his spot no mater how physical you get defending him. Once he gets his shoulder past a defender, he then overpowers smaller defenders to finish at the rim. A nice touch from the outside and just a born scorer in many ways.
Max Mendell ’24 (Tabor Academy) – Another physical guard who stood out from his peers with body control getting to the lane and ability to create his own shot. Earned his way into the all star game and held his own against the upperclassmen.
