Just a couple quick basketball notes from yesterday worth sharing:
• Tom Capuano signed with Manhattan. The Hastings resident made it official yesterday with Manhattan. He signed his letter of intent to join the Jaspers this fall after committing to them last month. Capuano is pictured above with Iona Prep coach Vic Quirolo, principal Ed O’Neill, and his parents, Janet and Joe.
Capuano, a 6-foot guard, was second on the Gaels in scoring (16.0), assists (3.3) and steals (1.4) per game while shooting 48.7 percent from the floor.
• Matt Ryan shines at Jordan Classic. Capuano’s teammate at Iona Prep participated in the Jordan Brand Classic regional game Friday at the Barclays Center. The Notre Dame commit played well in 21 minutes, scoring 15 points to go with seven rebounds, four assists and four steals.
The MVP was Elmsford’s Donovan Mitchell, who had 30 points. Mitchell is an explosive guard committed to Louisville who plays at Brewster Academy in New Hampshire.
