  1. FWIW, we have 7 offers out to '21 kids and 3 of those offers were made between July and October of 2018. This is nowhere close to what we would have had under Crean. Archie is far more focused and it just seems like Crean recruiting because of the 4 offers just this month. AAU season is in full swing and this is prime offering season.
  2. Remember the year 1974! We had co-Mr. Basketball's: Roy Taylor and Steve Collier. Could it happen again in 2020 with Galloway and Leal?
  3. He's going to UIndy which doesn't suggest to me he's a better version and that's not intended as a knock against UIndy.
  4. I did some digging and was surprised as I figured he would struggle especially since he's playing 'up'. He plays AAU on the Indy Heat team on the Nike circuit which is a very strong team and includes Luke Goode, Jaden Ivey, Nijel Pack and Kiryon Powell. Numbers I found were through 13 games and he's averaging 11.7 ppg on 57% shooting; 5 rpg; 1 assist; 2 TO and 1 steal. I watched a lot of his last season's high school games and wasn't that overly impressed. I thought he ran up and down the court really well but I didn't think he showed a lot of lateral quickness and he just didn't dominate the boards as I thought he should given his usual height advantage over lesser competition. I thought the older Davidson kid on his high school team was a far better overall player. So again, I'm surprised at his AAU numbers.
  5. I've watched both several times and I think Galloway brings more of an overall game. Leal will score more points; Galloway will get you more rebounds, assists and floor burns.
  6. If the thought was he was headed to Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, 'Nova, etc., he'd probably be ranked in the top 50 (he typed sarcastically)
  7. Recent article from the Evansville newspaper on Owen Dease. MaxPreps indicates he averaged 11.8 ppg and 3 rpg last season https://www.courierpress.com/story/sports/high-school/2019/05/27/evansville-reitz-wing-one-best-kept-secrets-indiana-basketball/3752325002/
  8. And it would be really helpful if he gave us some tangible information and not just the repetitive mantra. How about some stats and details of his current AAU season instead of just the same old same old? I for one am confident that if Archie feels he's good for IU, then he'll actively recruit him but from the games (at least 6) I watched him play last season, he's pretty one-dimensional. In particular, I watched his game against Northwestern when he was torched by the Parker kid for 40 pts. and Parker was his defensive assignment. And we now return you to our regularly scheduled rebuttal.
  9. He's received an official IU offer while on campus for the Indiana team camp per Drew Davis.
  10. Maybe his academics are an issue -- just a thought.
  11. This was referred to as a regional qualifier and I believe there were at least 3 other cities that hosted a qualifier. It was open to any adidas affiliated program that wanted to make an attempt to qualify for the adidas summer championship. Not the best analogy but it's similar to golfers playing in U.S. Open qualifiers hoping to make it to the actual tournament. A bone adidas can throw at its participating programs.
  12. Which could be very unfortunate for us if his shooting never showed any significant improvement. It'd be 5 on 4 most of the time he was on the court.
  13. As I mentioned yesterday, Indiana Elite did indeed end up facing D1 Minnesota for the weekend championship in Chicago. Both teams banged up and tired and they mutually agreed to forego playing the final game - would have been their 6th game in 2 days. The IE team is 16-3 this AAU season.
  14. No they are not. This is a multi-city qualifying weekend and basically any adidas affiliated team can enter with hope it can qualify for the July summer championship. Yesterday's games were cupcakes pure and simple. Today should be a little better with a tournament bracket format and only the best teams from Saturday participating. The D1 Minnesota squad (Ben Carlson, Kendall Brown and Dawson Garcia) also advanced and could possibly face off against the Indiana Elite team today.
  15. So important when we can get some first hand information on a target and not rely solely on stats for our impression of a kid's abilities.
