New Hampton Preview

Peter Fraa..Hampton Comes Comes Alive
- Up at the New Hampton School, head coach Pete Hutchins has an explosive roster which should make the Huskies one of the top squads in New England. Let's pull the parachute and enjoy the view.

Point:  Running the show for the Huskies will be one of New England's top few floor-generals in Olivier Hanlan, a sleek long and strong shot-caller from Quebec who committed to Boston College earlier this week...Also takings turns behind the wheel will be Evan Manning '12, a shot-making high-IQ combo-guard from Lawrence, Kansas who will see time at both guard spots. Evan is the son of current Kansas assistant coach and former NBA All-Star Danny Manning.

2-Guard: Playing alongside Hanlan and Manning in the back-court will be one-half of America's top sophomore-duo in Jared Terrell, a rocket-fuel scorer from Weymouth, Massachusetts who has exploded in 2011...In addition to JT, Aaron Hendricks is a facilitating shooter from Del Oro, California who will also spend time riding shotgun.

Frontline:  The versatility of his forwards could be Hutchins's ace-in-the-hole on the diamond slopes...Zach Auguste '12 is a 6'10 Notre Dame-bound gazelle who has improved dramatically over the past 18-months and seems to still be going through his development-spurt prime...Next to Auguste is the other half of that top 2014 duo: Noah Vonleh is set to take his game to the NEPSAC, the premier scholastic league in Los Estados Unidos...When you throw in Mike Auger, New Hampton also has America's premier trio in the Class of 2014. Standing 6'5 with a 6'9 wing-span and a strong frame, Auger is a locomotive forward who battles in the paint, runs the floor like a war-horse, and finishes emphatically above the rim...Another wing-span blink belongs to freshman Jeremy Miller, a contribute-right-away stretch-4 who yawns out to 7'3 while standing 6'9 and a hay...In the middle for Hutchins will be rugged 6'7 wide-body Barrington Alston '12, a long-armed Towson commit from Delaware who brings a landlord-style approach to the lane...A second big-bodied player who'll be an important rotation piece is Lew Evans '12, a 6'8 forward from Utah who plays with physicality and can shoot the mid-range shot.
