IU RecruitWatch: Weekend recap

There was plenty of good basketball happening in the Indianapolis area this weekend as the Indy City Tournament reached its final game. There was also this outstanding Hanner Perea dunk, which deserves a standing ovation:

Here’s a look-back at the weekend’s action:


Yogi Ferrell (Park Tudor): There were plenty of high-scoring wins for IU prospects this week and Ferrell’s Park Tudor team took care of business as well, scoring 15 points in a win over Speedway, as many other Indy-area teams took part in the Indy City Tournament.

Ron Patterson (Broad Ripple): In the City Tournament, Patterson’s team finished 1-1, as he added 13 points on a very average shooting percentage in both games.

Jeremy Hollowell (Lawrence Central): Hollowell’s team destroyed Bloomington North by more than 30 points, and Hollowell added a solid 16 points in the contest.

Hanner Perea (La Lumiere): Perea added 15 points and nine rebounds in a huge 31-point win for La Lumiere. This one wasn’t close either.

Peter Jurkin (UFCA): In an important game over Davidson Day, who is nationally ranked I believe, Jurkin tallied an effective and tough-earned 12 points.


Collin Hartman (Cathedral): Hartman played a key role in getting Cathedral to the Indy City Tournament championship game, which takes place tonight. He added 12 points and 10 rebounds in an opening round win over Trey Lyles’ Tech team. Then, he added 14 points and six rebounds in a win over Patterson’s Broad Ripple squad. Finally, he topped it off with nineteen points and eight rebounds in the semifinal against Arlington.

Devin Davis (Warren Central): Warren Central defeated Terre Haute South, and Davis played what seems like a limited role offensively, scoring eight points in the win.

Luke Fischer (Germantown, WI): Fischer is still out with a broken hand. He’ll be out a while.

BeeJay Anya (DeMatha, MD): Anya got a chance to play America’s No. 1 recruit in 2013 Shabazz Muhammad and his Bishop Gorman squad and lost, adding four points and nine rebounds. He also tallied 15 points and six points in his other two games in the past week.

Bo Zeigler (Detroit Community): Zeigler added 11 points in a very, very low scoring win over Clarkston. Considering they scored 46 points, I’m going to go on a limb and say he was the leading scorer.


Trey Lyles (Arsenal Tech): Lyles team lost in the first round of the Indy City Tournament, but not because of him. He scored 18 points and added 12 rebounds in the loss to Cathedral, as Hartman’s team made it all the way to the title game.

James Blackmon Jr. (Bishop Luers): Blackmon Jr. made a 17-point contribution in a close, overtime win for Luers.

Trevon Bluiett (Park Tudor): Bluiett had a huge game in Park Tudor’s win over Speedway, scoring 23 points and leading the team in scoring.

Jaquan Lyle (Evansville Bosse): Lyle looks like he’ll be the No. 1 guard in the state in 2014, and he might even be the best one of the next two years. He added a monster 37 points, seven rebounds, and five assists in a close loss to Harrison. He followed it with 23 points in Bosse’s next win.

Cliff Alexander (Chicago Curie): Alexander continued his solid season with 20 points, nine rebounds, and six blocks in the final game of the Martin Luther King Dream Classic to help Curie bring home the tournament title. He had similar statlines in his next two games as well.

Aaron Brennan (Guerin Catholic): Brennan tallied a solid 15-point statline in Guerin’s most recent win, a 53-45 win over Brebeuf.

Grant Evans (Wapahani): Evans had 43 points over two games and even added five 3-pointers in one of the games, as Wapahani flew out to two impressive victories.
