Hassan Diarra had a terrific Junior season for Putnam Science Academy on their way to a semifinal berth in the National Prep Championship, and now he’s started the spring AAU season strong for the PSA Cardinals.
After missing most of the 2018 AAU season with an injury, he made up for lost time in a couple games at last weekend’s Northeast Hoops Festival. With the EYBL season on tap, his physical style has drawn notice from local stalwarts UConn and Providence, as Andrew Slater reported, and his stock continues to rise with each game.

Back at the National Prep School Invitational in February, Adam Finkelstein highlighted his toughness with the ball in his hands, noting that he looks to initiate contact and plays with reckless abandon.
