Hoosier prospects Zak Irvin and Devin Davis at adidas May Classic

TEAM SCORE: 15U Eric Gordon All-Stars 62, Ohio Basketball Club 47

ZAK IRVIN: The 6-foot-4 guard, a rising sophomore at Hamilton Southeastern, had 19 points.

DEVIN DAVIS: The 6-foot-5 wing, a rising sophomore at Warren Central, had 17 points.

BASIL SMOTHERMAN: The 6-foot-5 wing, a rising sophomore at Heritage Christian, had 4 points.

IRVIN SAID: “It was tough playing JV, because I thought I could play varsity. But next year I am supposed to get a lot of minutes. I wasn’t strong enough. … I gained about 15 pounds (to 165).”

DAVIS SAID: “Coming down here, it was a real eye-opener. It was real fun to come down here and play with some of the players. … I can’t wait come down here again.”

MY THOUGHTS: Irvin is a quickly rising name at this tournament. Not a lot of people knew about him because he played for the JV team at Hamilton Southeastern (he said because the coaches did not think he was strong enough). But the colleges are interested — Xavier, Purdue, Ohio State, Michigan State and Vanderbilt all rolled off his tongue easily and he said IU contacted him for the first time two weeks ago.

Irvin has a really nice outside shot — it was he who drilled a 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Indiana Elite Stars Friday. It was on display again this morning, as he led Eric Gordon in scoring. He moves well for a player his size and, if he continues to grow, is going to be a high-major prospect.

Davis plays inside at Warren Central (for former IU player Greg Graham) and it’s obvious when you watch him play that he needs to become more comfortable with the ball. If he continues to grow he may become a Christian Watford-type 3/4, but if he does not, he will need to develop better ballhandling skills. His dribble is very high, as the Courier-Journal’s Jody Demling noted.

Davis is a very good scorer, and said he is a fan of both Purdue and IU’s practice facilities.

Smotherman had a disappointing effort after scoring 24 Friday. He did not shoot the ball nearly as well and blended in after a while.
