The 2018 National Prep Showcase has concluded after three days of great basketball, and the results provide quite a shakeup in our Week 1 Post Grad Power 10.
Putnam Science Academy (CT) went 2-0 at the NPS, and they'll move into the No. 1 spot. The Mustangs have won 30 straight games dating back to last season, and they have a heck of a backcourt rotation led by Tyson Etienne, Hassan Diarra and DeMarr Langford.
No. 1 Brewster Academy took the most notable lumps, dropping back to No. 10 after falling to Mt. Zion (MD) and Link Year Prep (MO). Brewster lost at the buzzer to Mt. Zion, and dropped a 10-point affair to Link Year.
Scotland Campus debuts in the rankings at No. 3, and head coach Chris Chaney's bunch is clearly the squad that we 'missed' on to open the season. Judah Jordan and Dequarius Nicholas stepped up big time at the National Prep Showcase, and both are a big season that Scotland Campus sits at 7-0.
New Hampton (NH) shoots up the rankings to No. 4 after blowout wins over previously No. 4 Hargrave and Mt. Zion Prep. Senior Mika Adams-Woods was huge for the Huskies, as was junior big man Dyondre Dominguez.
TSF Gold (GA) also debuts in the Power 10, slotting in at No. 6 after dealing a loss to previously No. 5 Massanutten Military. TSF will have a showcase matchup against No. 7 Sunrise Christian at TSF's Holiday Hoops Invitational this weekend.
Mt. Zion Prep (MD) is the last newcomer to the poll, taking the 9th spot after the upset win over Brewster Academy.
Massanutten Military, MacDuffie School, IMG Academy and CBD Montverde exit the week 1 after being included in the preseason rankings. Link Year Prep (MO) and Bridgton Academy (ME) are knocking at the door after strong showings at the NPS.
