Description: 
 
The Men's Varsity A Basketball Program is recognized as one of the premiere prep school programs in the country. It is an elite team that attracts top student-athletes from all over the country and the world, molds them into a tight, cohesive unit, and prepares them for success on the court and in the classroom in college. With a strong focus on skill development and playing the "right way," New Hampton School players are ready for the rigors of college. Players are given every opportunity to showcase their skills to college coaches, and with the help of the coaching staff, work to find the appropriate college destination. The "A" program also is comprised of NHS students who have worked their way up through the ranks of the program. 

The Varsity A team, led by seventh-year Head Coach and NHS alumnus Pete Hutchins ’01, plays a 32-game schedule against tough competition. They take on top prep schools such as 
Brewster, Tilton, Bridgton, Hargrave, NMH, and South Kent. The A team also takes on college teams, including the Harvard University JV. In recent years, the New Hampton Huskies have won two New England Championships, the most recent in 2002, and were runners up in 2011. In addition to winning the New England Class A Championships, the Huskies have won the New Hampton Tourney six times and the prestigious Fork Union Tournament three times.
 
Husky Basketball has a strong tradition of sending its athletes to play at the next level. Four former Huskies have gone on to win NCAA championships — Wes Miller, Rashad McCants (2005 UNC), Brady Morningstar (2008 Kansas), J.D. Simpson (1997 Duke). Currently there are former Huskies playing at schools including the University of Kansas, University of Michigan, University of the Pacific, Gonzaga University, Cal Poly, UC Irvine, Baylor, Boston College, Indiana University, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Columbia, Trinity College, Lafayette College, Swarthmore College, UNC Greensboro, Tulsa, and Maryland. The 2013-14 Huskies include talented returnees in Mike Auger ’14 (Penn), Mike LeBlanc ’14 (Princeton), Tory Miller ’14 (Colorado) and Jeremy Miller ’15.


The NBA has been a destination for former Huskies, too. Darius Songaila '98 was a Boston Celtics 2nd-round draft pick in 2002.  Bernard Robinson '00 played for the Charlotte Bobcats. Rashad McCants '00  was a lottery pick for the Minnesota Timberwolves.  Awvee Storey '97  played for the Washington Wizards and Milwaukee Bucks, Lawrence Moten '91, the all-time leading scorer for Syracuse and the Big East, played for the Vancouver Grizzlies in the late nineties. Cuonzo Martin ’91 also had brief stints in the league.

There are also several Huskies coaching in college including Ed Cooley ’89 (Head Coach, Providence), Pat Knight ’90 (Head Coach, Lamar University), Wes Miller ’02 (Head Coach, UNCG), Kenya Hunter ’91 (Assistant Coach, Georgetown), 
Cuonzo Martin ’91 (Head Coach, Tennessee), Michael Roberts ’00 (Asst. Coach, UNC Greensboro), and Justin Dussault ’99 (Asst. Coach, Goldey-Beacom), and Lee Moon ’97 (Asst. Coach, University of North Florida).

Three NHS alumni work for NBA organizations. Chris Wallace '77 is the General Manager of the Memphis Grizzlies, Josh Kroenke ’99 is the President of the Denver Nuggets, and Awvee Storey ’97 is in player development with the Washington Wizards.
 
Beyond basketball, athletes in the Varsity A program are expected to maintain quality GPAs and effort averages. They take on leadership positions in the residential houses and embrace all that the community has to offer.

Huskies Escape South Kent, Advance to NEPSAC Semifinals
2/29/2012
Despite a horrific first half, the Huskies rallied to defeat South Kent by a count of 70-69 in the NEPSAC quarterfinals. The game was a tale of two halves, as the Huskies were flummoxed by the South Kent zone in the first half. Coupled with thirteen turnovers, the Huskies did themselves no favors, and found themselves down 39-23 at the intermission. The second half, though, was an entirely different story. Not only did the Huskies begin to execute against the South Kent zone, but they also picked up their defense, forcing several turnovers that led to easy baskets. The result was an 18-3 run to start the half, pulling the Huskies to within one at 42-41. The Huskies were unable to break through to take a lead until the ten minute mark, when a Jared Terrell '14 (Weymouth, MA) jumper put them up 54-53. The Huskies held the lead until late in the half, when South Kent pulled back ahead 64-62. Huge baskets by Lew Evans '12 (Salt Lake City, UT), Olivier Hanlan '12 (Gatineau, Quebec), and Barrington Alston '12 (Wilmington, DE) down the stretch led to a 69-69 tie with just over a minute left. After the two teams traded turnovers, the Huskies held for the final shot, and Noah Vonleh '14 (Haverhill, MA) drove the lane, drawing a foul. After missing the first free throw short, Vonleh calmly buried the second. A South Kent runner was off the mark, yet the ball was knocked out of bounds by the Huskies with 0.4 seconds left. Barrington Alston, though, ensured that there would be no last second heroics, slapping away the inbounds pass to ensure the victory. The Huskies were led by Zach Auguste '12 (Marlboro, MA), who posted another double-double, recording 19 points and 12 rebounds. Jared Terrell played an impressive all-around game while tallying 18 points. Hanlan added 11, while Noah Vonleh was one rebound shy of a double-double, notching 10 points and grabbing 9 boards. The Huskies return to action on Friday night at 8 pm against St. Thomas More at Endicott College. St. Thomas More, who defeated MCI, is the 2 seed in the tournament. The two teams split the regular season series, with both teams winning at home. 

 


Huskies Pull Away from Tilton
2/25/2012
In their final home contest of the year, the Huskies prevailed against archrival Tilton by a score of 76-58. Feeding off of an energetic home crowd, the Huskies jumped out to a 10-2 lead. Tilton fought back, briefly taking the lead midway through the half, yet the Huskies battled back, and were able to take a 35-28 lead into the half. The second half saw no letdown from the Huskies, as they pushed their lead into double figures to take a 54-40 advantage midway through the period. Yet again, Tilton would not go away, cutting the lead to 54-47. That was as close as Tilton would get, however, as the Huskies responded in kind with their own 7-0 run. Following a Tilton three-pointer and a Zach Auguste '12 (Marlboro, MA) free throw, Lew Evans '12 (Salt Lake City, UT) put a dagger in Tilton's hopes, burying two huge threes on back-to-back possessions to give the Huskies their biggest lead of the game at 68-50 with under five minutes left. From there, the Huskies held on to secure the victory. The Huskies' strong defensive effort was augmented by a dominating preformance on the glass, as the Huskies corralled 22 offensive rebounds leading to numerous second chance opportunities. Auguste led the way for the Huskies, recording his second straight double-double, tallying 22 points and 14 rebounds, an incredible 11 of which were on the offensive glass. Olivier Hanlan '12 (Gatineau, Quebec) also put on a show in his final game at Smith Gymnasium, netting 21 points and grabbing 8 rebounds. Aside from his two monstruous threes, Lew Evans had a strong game, scoring 12 points and recording 7 rebounds. Jared Terrell '14 (Weymouth, MA) added 11 points. With the regular season completed, the Huskies will face South Kent in the NEPSAC quarterfinals on Wednesday at Endicott College. Tip-off is at 3 pm.
