Tyonne MaloneClick Here to view this Link.: Only a freshman to be, the Mass Rivals lefty plays an impressively mature game. The 6-foot-5 slasher made a living rolling off of screens or taking defenders to the rim off the dribble. Malone has shown he can produce against older competition, which certainly bodes well for his future.

Terrence Mann: Mann is a tough player who has already established a reputation for himself as a guy who can hit shots from anywhere on the floor. He makes great decisions with the ball and the sophomore to be has the ability to be one of New England's most complete prospects a couple years down the line as he tightens up his all-around game.
