New Hampton forward Dyondre Dominguez put together one of the best performances throughout day two of the National Prep Showcase. The Huskies had some good competition in Hargrave Military Academy, but Dominguez and his team proved to be too much for them. The class of 2020 forward was outstanding around the basket and appears to be developing his jump shot. He was the go-to guy for New Hampton at points and finished with 29 points and 11 rebounds for the day.
It didn’t stop at Dominguez for New Hampton as Mika Adams-Woods went off as well. The class of 2019 Nebraska commit controlled the pace the entire game and was the best playmaker on the floor. Head coach Nick Whitmore had another coach playing on the floor and his feel for the game created many opportunities for him and his teammates. With his offensive capabilities and basketball I.Q., he has a chance at getting significant minutes at Nebraska his freshman year.
Massanutten Military Academy senior guard Dereon Seabron lived up to expectations with his performance over St. Thomas More (CT). At 6’6” Seabron ran the point, which gave St. Thomas More some trouble on the defensive end. Seabron showed a solid understanding of the flow on offense but was at his best when slashing to the basket. He took great angles and was either too big or too quick for the guy defending him.
Class of 2020 point guard Hassan Diarra led Putnam Science Academy to a 2-0 weekend at the National Prep Showcase. The Mustangs had two tough opponents in Sunrise Christian Academy and CBD Montverde, but their junior point guard in Diarra stepped up in big ways. In their second game of the weekend, the junior point guard did what he does best in playing gritty on both ends, but also knocked down some key shots. With a guy as steady as Hassan Diarra in their backcourt, Putnam Science will be tough to stop this year.
Mikah Johnson Jr., a class of 2020 wing playing for the NJ Bulldogs, has picked up an offer from St. Peter’s.
