Top Performers: Hoop Group NJ Tip-Off
Keenan Worthington / ’19 Blair Academy
The 6’7 big man came up huge for Blair on multiple possessions with his outside shooting. Showed one of the most fluent inside-outside games of any big all weekend.
Jordan Dingle (UPenn) / ’19 Blair Academy
Really showed his ability to take over the game and pace the offense with both scoring and playmaking.
Gibson Jimerson (Saint Louis) / ’19 Montverde Academy CBD
One of the better shooters of the weekend, Jimerson had a stronger outing in Montverde’s first game on Friday but showed off his deadly shooting off the dribble and the catch with a solid 6’5 frame.
James Lee / ’19 Montverde Academy CBD
Lee really kicked up on day three and put a beating on Perkiomen including one of the biggest dunks of the weekend at the Dunn Center.
Paul Mulcahy (Rutgers) / ’19 Gill St. Bernard’s
My first time seeing Mulcahy in person and he’s got the strength, feel, and moxie as advertised.
Ben Roy / ’22 Manasquan
The freshman guard endured a full game of pressure from Union Catholic guards and found his composure to make some big plays at the right times.
Brad McCabe / ’19 Manasquan
McCabe was another big-time stretch forward shooter who caused fits from the three-point line.
Class of 2019 Brad McCabe was a serious threat from deep for Manasquan and even added a dunk to seal the game. With him going Manasquan is a very hard team to defend. @TheHoopGroup #HGShowcase

Jaheim Tanksly / ’19 Union Catholic
Coming off of a recent injury Tanksly was fearless getting to the basket and finished some extremely tough drives that made him a constant threat.
Jonah Charles (UPenn) / ’19 Rutgers Prep
The senior made potent and poised plays at every level for Prep and showed off true Ivy League talent.
Noah Harris / ’21 Rutgers Prep
Harris kept Rutgers Prep alive with some critical outside shots that kept the Elizabeth crowd humble throughout the game.
Jesiah West / ’19 Elizabeth
West had the Dunn Center electric and simply took over the game with his energy and athleticism helping new head coach Phil Colicchio secure his first win.
Zach Freemantle (Xavier) / ’19 Bergen Catholic
A tank of a presence inside and great feel for both hands around the basket.
Matt Zona / ’20 Bergen Catholic
As the perfect pairing with Freemantle, it was Zona doing damage all over the floor including the three-point and free throw line.
Matt Zona, a class of 2020 PF from Bergen Catholic (NJ), just picked up an offer from Saint Joseph’s.

Shane Dezonie / ’21 Union Catholic
A big and athletic guard with a good feel for the floor, can shoot it and make good decisions on the move.
Eddie Davis / ’19 Pope John
Even though they lost big one of the bigger performances of the weekend came from Davis
Scottie Lewis (Florida) / ’19 Ranney
Lewis struggled a bit with turnovers but was ultimately able to impose his will and pick his spots with pull-up jumpers and trips to the free throw line.
Bryan Antoine (Villanova) / ’19 Ranney
Antoine received MVP with 33 points and simply dominated the game.
