Day 1 at Hoosier Hardwood

As expected, a crazy day full of basketball action in the debut of this national AAU tournament.

  • I saw Bloomington native Shea Collins shook off early jitters to score six key points down the stretch to help her Vegas Elite Blue team win its morning opener.
  • In the evening, Indiana Elite Central, featuring 2010 IU recruit Andrea Newbauer and 2010 Purdue recruit Courtney Moses knock off Orange County Elite, 70-59. Hoosier and Boilermaker recruiting target Liz Stratman (2011) stole the show with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Newbauer had five points and an assist, but had at least four other assists blown by missed layups. I’ll have more on these players Tuesday.
