A Boarding School Basketball Dynasty! Brewster Academy Wins Fourth National Prep Championship in Six Years


Boston Magazine’s Adam Doster calls Brewster Academy’s Prep basketball team The Greatest Game You’ve Never Seen. The Truth is though that Brewster has played great boys basketball for years, but the past fifteen years under coach Jason Smith have been something.

Brewster Academy Boys Prep Team Wins Fourth National Prep Championship in Six Years

Five days ago – March 11 – Brewster’s prep team beat IMG Academy to secure their second straight national championship. Coming just three days after the Bobcat’s victory over St. Thomas More for the NEPSAC AAA boys basketball title.

I’m not sure if this is a prep school record, but this is Brewster’s Fourth National Prep Championship title in six years and the Bobcats’ fifth Class AAA Championship since 2008.

Read Doster’s Boston Magazine piece for the full story:

…Their names now are mostly unknown, though it’s a good bet that “these kids” will be playing in NCAA tournaments for years to come.. David Crisp, who will suit up next season at the University of Washington…Jalen Adams…will attend the University of Connecticut next fall…In addition to Crisp and Adams, [Brewster] is sending guard Justin Simon to the University of Arizona and guard Donovan Mitchell to the University of Louisville… (Boston Magazine)
