Pair pg 9 8-2-19

PUTNAM — As the school year nears with July coming to an end, the AAU Basketball Circuit starts to wind down as well. A pair of Putnam Science Academy basketball players have really capitalized on the extra playing time this summer on the AAU circuit with PSA’s Nasserine Williams and Luc Brittan making waves.
Williams has seen her name pop up quite a bit playing for “Mass Elite” piling up a total of 6 offers this summer. While playing for former PSA Mustang and Putnam Clipper, Dino Porcic, who now coaches the AAU team Mass Elite, Williams has seen her game go to the next level receiving offers from: Fairfield University, Rider University, Colgate, St. Bonaventure, Wagner and Idaho State. Nasserine has impressed not only her coaches but several scouts in attendance over the last few weekends competing with her team in showcases around New England and the east coast. Wagner and Idaho State were the last two programs to offer the 6-foot, 2-inch stretch guard this past weekend.  Luc Brittan saw minimal playing time last year on the Prep Boys Basketball team generally coming into the game when the victory was in hand. But with so few returnees from last year’s team, Brittan, whose going into his 3rd year at Putnam Science Academy, could be looking at an extended role this upcoming season. The 6-6 forward from Norwich has had a monster summer playing for The CT Express AAU team and has shown his ability to do a little bit of everything when called upon. Two weeks ago Brittan played in HoopSeen’s “Best of the South” tournament and stole the show posting 3 straight games of double- doubles that included a 24 point, 28 rebound game where he also added 6 assists and 5 blocks. No different this past weekend for Brittan who knocked down five 3-pointers and finished with a game-high 24 points for CT Express during the 17U tournament held by Big Shots. Brittan leads the entire tournament averaging 22 points and 12 rebounds a game. As a physical forward who can rebound and can stretch the floor shooting the 3, I would keep an eye out on PSA’s Luc Brittan this upcoming fall.
