Two of the very, very best prep school basketball teams in the country met for battle in…New Hampshire??? Yes, that’s right.
Brewster Academy and Tilton School did battle yesterday, and Brewster prevailed 60-56. Lots of future D-1 basketball talent on display for the 1,500+ fans who packed the house.
Here is more video from an earlier Brewster/Tilton game this season that ended in OT.
The annual Beanpot Hockey Tournament is probably Boston’s most iconic college sporting event. Involving Northeastern, Harvard, BC, and BU, the tournament features some of the best talent the country has to offer.
In the championship game tonight, dozens of prep school attendees fill the rosters of BC and BU. I’ll do my best to list off the schools, but forgive me if I missed any.
Nobles & Greenough, B.B.N., Thayer Academy, Belmont Hill, Roxbury Latin, Lawrence Academy, Tabor Academy, Avon Old Farms, Phillips Andover, South Kent, Salisbury School, Brewster Academy, Catholic Memorial, Marshall Prep, Northwood School, Westminster, and Choate Rosemary Hall.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Thirty of the country’s top prep school basketball teams, up to 100 college coaches on hand to evaluate prospects, and several NBA scouts will gather for the 14th annual National Prep School Invitational.
Held at Rhode Island College from Thursday, February 2 through Sunday, February 5, the nation’s elite exposure event will once again have its top games broadcasted on COX Sports.
With an upwards of 50 players impressively already committed to colleges, the event’s main goal is to provide a springboard for many more to join that group.
The featured young talent competing ranges all the way from the traditional powers of the New England Prep School Athletic Conference to as far as the Canarias Basketball Academy of the Canary Islands.
Highlighting the field is last year’s National Prep Championship Tournament winner St. Thomas More (CT) and NEPSAC champion Maine Central Institute (ME). Previous titleholders Brewster Academy (NH), Bridgton Academy (ME), Notre Dame Prep (MA) and Tilton School (NH) return as well.
I found this article online at AdmissionsQuest.com. It’s actually a link to the real article on some obscure NH weekly online news magazine. But, I wanted to post the article from AdmissionsQuest because I love the way the author so casually drops in that he was at a party in Oxford, Mississippi. Just telling us all that he is partying in the prep capitol of the South, saying “I may be old, but I’m still prep.”
Here is the article if you want to read it. Just goes to show that New England prep schools are like a magnet for great high school basketball players.
A great majority of the players involved in the brawl were prep school alumni. Goes to show that preps are tougher than you think! Check out the bro bleeding his face off. 34 should be done for the season.
