The Hoop Group Showcase Awards continue today with our All-First Team for the 2018-2019 season. It was difficult to select just five players with the amount of talent all four high school showcases had this year. The players below make up this year’s first team.

Scottie Lewis | Ranney School, NJ (Class of 2019)

Casey Morsell | St. John’s, DC (Class of 2019)

Jalen Gaffney | Westtown School, PA (Class of 2019)

Paul Mulcahy | Gill St. Bernard’s, NJ (Class of 2019)

Matt Zona | Bergen Catholic, NJ (Class of 2020)

The Hoop Group’s Zack Curran breaks down these five players for Hoop Group Insider

“All five of these guys were outstanding at our Hoop Group Showcases this year,” Curran said. “It comes as no surprise that four of these players are headed to high major programs. They along with junior standout Matt Zona were big time competitors and were so much fun to watch. The Hoop Group was lucky to have so much great talent like this come through our events this high school season.”

There is a reason why Lewis is committed to Florida, Morsell to Virginia, Gaffney to UConn, Mulcahy to Rutgers and Matt Zona continues to receive more attention. All five of these players know what it takes and haven’t taken steps backward as their high school careers have gone on. The four seniors have made a big impact in their four years and Matt Zona should continue to do so heading down the final stretch of his high school career.
