Last week we reported 6-foot-3 junior guard, Ty Thomas (Amity H.S.) gained much attention from numerous college programs while landing himself on NERR's #S16 event All-Tournament team (First Team). Well, in-case-you-missed it, two other PTT players, 6-foot-1 point guard, Antonio Brancato and 6-foot-0 combo guard, Jackson Benigni, garnered recognition following last week's event, which again had on display many of the region's most promising prospects.
Antonio Brancato, 6'1, Jr., PG, Hamden Hall: A good ball-handler with a quick first step, he gets into the lane easily and has a nice pull-up. He picked up some NESCAC interest following his performance this weekend.
Jackson Benigni, 6'0, So., 1/2, Xavier HS: Benigni had himself a weekend, scoring over 100 points in four games for the 16’s and then, when players got injured, joining the 17’s and making his presence felt on that level as well. He makes shots with range and thrives in the drive and kick game.
