SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND -- Curtis Stinson, a 6-2, 200-pound slashing swingman from the Winchendon School in Massachusetts, grew up in the Bronx. So Stinson certainly knows how to play the game of basketball.
Rivalshoops.com caught Stinson in action a lot when he played with the New York Ravens during the summer AAU circuit. Stinson impressed us as someone who was able to score points along the baseline and battle some big bodies inside for loose balls.
His game appears to be similiar at the Winchendon School too. Stinson scored 13 points to help the Winchendon School upend the Laurinburg Institute at the 2002 National Prep School Invitational this past weekend.
Stinson scored his 13 points on six baskets -- most on drives to the basket. He is classified as a junior so Curtis will likely have to elevate his play this summer to start some recruiting interest.
Stinson can play division one basketball for sure. He has good instincts and a nose for the ball. Stinson also has strength and this enables him to be a threat when he drives to the basket.
Stony Brook, Rider, Fairfield, St. Peter's are just some schools that had expressed interest in Stinson.
