Posted Thursday, November 21st, 2019

As much as things change at Cushing Academy, they also seem to stay the same.  The program has had three different head coaches in the last decade while producing star players and competing for championships at every stop along the way.  In the three years since James Cormier has taken over though, there hasn’t been a more consistent AA program. The Penguins won the championship in 2017, advanced to the final four in 2018, and made another run to the… READ MORE >

NJIT lands a steal in Gray

Mekhi Gray 2020

Posted Monday, November 11th, 2019

There might not be another player in New England who has improved more in the last year than Mekhi Gray. The New York native first appeared in the region last fall after transferring into South Kent. He arrived with an early rep and some raw tools, but neither a polished or consistently productive game. After a year of growth in the NEPSAC, Gray showed increasingly consistent flashes in the EYBL, and especially at the Peach Jam, with his PSA Cardinals… READ MORE >
