Invest in Jones

TEAM FRENJI Alumni KEVIN JONES of West Virginia has seen his NBA stock rise and rise at a very steady pace this year. While he is only a sophomore, he continues to impress people and as potential to get the league. Below is a recent article written on him by Draftexpress.com.

NCAA WEEKLY PERFORMERS by: Jonathan Givony 
Coming off a terrific 2008-2009 season, the eleventh ranked West Virginia Mountaineers (14-3) are off to a fast start once again. Though Da’Sean Butler remains the teams top scoring option and 
Devin Ebanks receives much of the attention from a NBA perspective, sophomore power forward Kevin Jones has been the team’s biggest revelation and one of Bob Huggins’ most productive contributors.

On first glance Jones does not stand out as being a great prospect due to his average physical tools. This is likely the reason his hometown Syracuse squad declined to offer him a scholarship even to be a backup, despite the fact that he badly wanted to play for them. He has average size for a power forward at just 6-8, and sports underwhelming explosiveness. He compensates for that though with a very nice wingspan, terrific smarts and an exceptional energy level. A true competitor, Jones spent last summer bulking up, and the results have shown on the court. Capable of scoring from the inside and out, Jones has emerged as a legitimate draft prospect and high-level college player thanks to his outstanding versatility, efficiency, and mentality.

While Peekskill has produced tons of great players, Brickhouse joins only seven other Red Devils have scored 1,000 points. “He spent his first two years distributing the ball and over the past two years we’ve needed him to score,” Panzanaro said. ” It’s great to see a kid who works so hard be able to achive this goal.” Teammate Keny Bradshaw shot 10-16 from field and scored 22 points.

Mason Focused

TEAM FRENJI caught up with FWF Classic 2009 player 6’4 ANTOINE MASON of New Rochelle HS. He is quietly going about his business  leading the Hugenots to a great start and focusing on winning a section 1 championship. We spoke with Lil’ Mase yesterday about his recruitment and his goals for the future. He stated that he has offers from LIU, New Hampshire, Manhattan, Fordham, Niagara, FDU and Quinnipiac as of right now and a few new ones have been looking at him. He has yet to trim down to a top 5 or take an official visit yet. Mase said he will look to visit after the season ends and make a decision shortly after. Right now he is focused on winning a sectional championship and having fun with his senior year. Antoine is averaging 19PPG & 8RPG and the team has an overall record of  13-1 going into this weekends big game vs Mt Vernon. Mase competed in the Frankie Williams  Charity Classic last year and will look to do the same with TEAM FRENJI this year. We would like to wish him the best as he pursues his championship goals.

He leads the contry at 5.6 bpg in just 24 mpg. He’s also averaging 12.5 ppg and 9.4 rpg in his freshman season.With amazing length and athleticism, scouts feel he has more potential than anyone in college not named John Wall and could be a top 5 pick in THIS year’s draft if he decides to leave early. He has moved up to the #1 pick on the 2011 mock draft

Patiently Waiting

TEAM FRENJI Alumni SEAN KILPATRICK is patiently waiting for his chance at the Big East. He has been waiting since signing with the Bearcats of Cincinnati. We caught up with SK at the Cincy/ St. Johns game last week and SK is doing very very well. He is working hard in the classroom, passing all his classes and has been working hard in practice. With that being said we are posting a recent interview with SK from Bearcatlair.com/rivals that will detail how he truly is doing.

Kilpatrick awaits his chance
By Ryan Pence, BearcatLair.com Staff Writer

When he committed to play for the Bearcats last offseason, New York native Sean Kilpatrick didn’t expect to spend his freshman season on the bench, watching his teammates do battle with the rest of the Big East while he could only watch. However, because of Mick Cronin’s decision to redshirt Kilpatrick, that is exactly what he’ll have to do.

But instead of hanging his head, Kilpatrick has taken a much different route. Instead of losing faith in himself, and in his coach, Kilpatrick says he realized that the decision the coaches made was in his best interest, and decided to get to work on becoming the best player he could be.

“I was just coming in here to work hard regardless,” said Kilpatrick. “I wasn’t going to look at it like ‘oh, I might do this, I might do that’ because of situations on the team, I was just coming here to work hard regardless. “
