Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

On Sunday, April 6, 2014, MVP Basketball hosted its 6th Annual Boys All-Star Day. The daylong program featured five All-Star Games comprised of players from 27 yeshivas throughout the NY/NJ Metro Area as selected by their respective coaches. This year, two new grades were added to the fun filled day: 6th grade and 7th grade were added to 8th grade, High School JV and Varsity games. Each of the participants received MVP All-Star Day T-shirts.

The players represented the following yeshivas: Yeshiva Har Torah, HALB, MDY, HAFTR, HANC, North Shore, YCQ, Flatbush, Derech Hatorah, YNJ, Moriah, Ramaz, Brandeis, RPRY, Yavneh, Westchester Day School, Barkai, DRS, Rambam, Shaare Torah, JEC, MTA, TABC, Heschel, Frisch, Kushner, and SAR. The teams were coached by coaches from the Yeshiva Leagues.

The games were extremely competitive and some came down to the last possession. At halftime of each game, the MVP 3-Point Shootout featured “specialists” as selected by their respective coaches. Each 3-point champion received an MVP 3-Point Shootout Trophy. Two MVP’s from each All-Star Game (one from the winning team and one from the losing team) were awarded MVP trophies as well. The following were the 3-Point Champions: 6th grade – Oren Betesh, YCQ; 7th grade – Jack Guindi, MDY; 8th grade – Michael Tsor, Brandeis; JV – David Lowinger, Kushner; Varsity – Justin Hod, Frisch. The following were the MVP’s of each of the All Star Games – 6th grade – Matthew Jedwab, Haftr, and Shmuli Coates, YNJ; 7th grade –Moshe Lati, Barka,i and Jack Rosow, Flatbush; 8th grade – Yosef Kaminetsky, HALB and Nathaniel Rabanipour, North Shore; JV – Abie Perlow, DRS and Mayer Scharlat, Frisch; Varsity – Cody Cohen, North Shore and Mordechai Weiss, Kushner. The games were attended by many spectators including family, friends, and teammates.
