Eruption of Mount Ledo
- The first day of the NERR National Prep Showcase is in the books and the New England schools went 5-2 on the day.  Lee Academy beat Fork Union (VA) 70-63.  Hargrave (VA) downed Notre Dame Prep 115-91.  Bridgton came back from down 15 to clip St Johns (WI) 74-71.  St Thomas More blew out Fishburne 83-56.  South Kent bested La Jolla Prep 94-74.  Winchendon fell to New Hope (MD) 84-62..NMH outlasted Massanutten Prep 97-93.  More analysis on today's action in the next few days..Here's a brief breakdown of some of what went down.

- In South Kent's impressive 94-74 win over La Jolla Prep, Ricky Ledo erupted for 37 points, knocking down 7 out of 12 from long-range and shooting 13-22 overall from the floor, including three roof-raising hammer jobs.  Ledo also had five assists (could of had 8 or 9 except for several missed bunnies) to three turnovers.

- Myles Davis followed up his 34 point performance against Brewster by dropping 26 in a 115-91 defeat to Hargrave Military Acadmy, shooting 10-16 from the field and 6-12 from trey land.

- St Johns-bound Amir Garrett had 17 points and 9 rebounds in Bridgton's 74-71 comeback win over St Johns (WI).

- St Thomas More used a well-balanced, tenacious attack to blow out Fishburne Academy (VA) by a score of 83-56.  Fishburne, by the way, has ten players committed to D1 schools.  STM has an impressive group of guards with AJ English, Curtis Jones, Ky Howard, & Barrington Stephens.  Leading the way tonight were Stephens, who went 5-6 from the floor to finish with 12, & Ky Howard, who dropped a hard-hat line of 6 points, 6 assists, 10 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks, and only 1 turnover.

- Northfield Mt Hermon had the late game and earned a 97-93 win over Massanutten (VA) in their season opener.  Ethan O'Day had a monster-mash game.  More on this ballgame tomorrow.
