Yep. Same thing is happening upstate. Bertram/Torrance/Buddy/Woods all left for New England at various points.I feel like basketball in NY as a whole is wayyyy down. I went to Clarkstown South which is AA in section 1. When I played we would be lucky to keep it within 50 against Mt Vernon. Total diff class of kids who played there at that time, now they barely beat South in the section final past couple times which is unfathomable to me. Prep schools in New England take all the top kids, great for the kids but it dillutes the state. Teams like Mt Vernon arent holding on to these top kids anymore
Couple that with NYC basketball not being what it once was it is kind of sad.
It's rare that a Huerter or Girard stay in high school, but both of those guys were multi sport athletes(Baseball/football).
