The Finals of the National Prep Championship tonight at 7:30 at Connecticut College is top seeded Putnam Science Academy versus third seeded Northfield Mount Hermon School.
Northfield got to the final with a win over The Tilton School. This is the fastest Northfield team we’ve seen in a long time. Nate Laszewski bombs away from three and Max Lorca has come on strong around the rim. Noah Kirkwood is the X Factor with his ability to create in the open floor and facilitate for his teammates.
Putnam is long, athletic and play with high motors. They are deep at all five positions. They are going to attack you off the dribble and they really get after it on the offensive glass Akok Akok is the key while Josh Mballa has been equally impressive up front. In the backcourt Kyle Lofton has continued his huge post graduate year.
It’s going to be a fun one tonight as Northfield’s skill and pace go against Putnam’s athleticism and high motor attack. The winner calls themselves national champion.
