  • Reggie Cameron, one of the top small forwards in the Class of 2013 out of Hudson (N.J.) Catholic, will be contributing periodically to ZAGSBLOG during his junior season. Here’s his first entry:

    What’s up everybody! If you already didn’t know my name is Reggie Cameron and I am a 6-foot-7 SF and I attend Hudson Catholic High School in Jersey City, N.J.

    This is my second year at HC, after I was forced to transfer after the closing of Paterson Catholic. So I am hoping I can bring Hudson Catholic to the top and back to state dominance very soon.

    HACKENSACK, N.J. — Even though his team came up short against Teaneck Sunday in The New Year’s Jump Off, St. Patrick junior small forward DeAndre Bembry put on one of the day’s more impressive performances.

    The 6-foot-6 Bembry tallied 21 point, 7 rebounds, 4 blocks, 4 steals and 4 turnovers in St. Pat’s narrow 65-63 loss to unbeaten Teaneck.

    Seton Hall head coach Kevin Willard and associate head coach Shaheen Holloway were among the coaches on hand, along with St. Joe’s head coach Phil Martelli, Wagner coach Dan Hurley and Boston University head coach Joe Jones.

    HACKENSACK, N.J. — After not playing each other for more than a decade, St. Anthony facing off against St. Benedict’s could now be an annual affair.

    “It’s a good game for us,” Hall of Fame St. Anthony coach Bob Hurley told SNY.tv Sunday after his team won its 40th straight game, 51-50, over St. Benedict’s at the New Year’s Jump Off at Hackensack High School.

    “We want to play Jersey games. I’m an old guy, I don’t want to do much traveling.

    Amile Jefferson is down to five schools, according to a report in The Philadelphia Inquirer.

    The 6-foot-7 Jefferson told the paper he’s considering N.C. State, Villanova, Ohio State, Kentucky, and Temple. Stanford is out and Temple is a long shot.

    Villanova coach Jay Wright and an N.C. State assistant watched Jefferson Friday night when his Philly Friends Central team beat Neshaminy in the Jameer Nelson Classic

    Multiple sources close to the recruitment told SNY.tv that Kentucky is in good position now, yet N.C. State is also a possibility.
