Bishop Elite Takes 3 More Titles Home

Bishop Elite continues to establish itself as the premier boys basketball AAU program in the state. They won 4 titles at the NH state tournament, and now this past weekend they won 3 more championships.

They won the 15U, 16U and 17U titles this weekend at a New England Recruiting Report hosted tournament held at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. Bishop Elite won the 17U title with a 90-88 overtime win over the Bristol Ballers. Below are the highlights from that game.

Devin Gilligan (who is transferring from Souhegan High to Kimball Union Academy) exploded for 37 points in the title game vs. the Bristol Ballers. He was scoring the basketball inside and out, and for a 6'4" kid he showed a good handle and the ability to get by his man and finish at the rim at will. Once he started to heat up his teammates did a nice job of getting into the lane and setting him up for good looks.

Logan Kesty (Bishop Guertin) hit the game winning-shot as time expired with a floater in the lane with a hand right in his face. He also hit some big outside shots (he had 20 points total on the game) and made some nice feeds inside.

Speaking of inside play, Trevor Fahmy (Bedford HS) was a force on the low block. He didn't try to do to much or get too fancy with his post moves, just showed a nice combination of power and finesse.

Anthony Muccioli (Nashua South) also played well, running the offense from the point and converting some big buckets at key times in the game.

The Bishop Elite 16U team meanwhile won their championship game by over 20 points, cruising to the win in their bracket. Trevor Glassman (Bedford HS) was on fire from beyond the arc, draining 8 three-pointers to lead the way.

It was another big weekend for Bishop Elite, as the once again do a great job of representing NH basketball. It is also nice to see that their players are getting looks from college coaches in the area.

"Wol Majong (Trinity HS) has received interest from Stony Brook, University of Vermont, and George Washington University" said Bishop Elite director Sudi Lett.
