NEPSAC Playoff Recaps

Kevin Farrahar and NERR have some great recaps of the weekend’s action in the NEPSAC playoffs. Cooley and staff were in attendance on Sunday for the Cushing and Brewster games but they weren’t there for the Cushing semifinal game on Friday night which makes me wonder if they are still in the running for Jalen Adams who is in the process of blowing up nationally. It’s clear the PC staff is making Donovan Mitchell their priority in 2015 and they also appear to still be very interested in Devonte’ Graham despite not being able to speak to him until May and not knowing if he will even be eligible to play next year or not. Mitchell won the MVP of the AAA group and Graham made some savvy and winning plays down the stretch.
