Hoosier Morning

  • With the championship on the line, D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera played through cramps and delivered a championship for the 16U Indiana Elite Team Indiana team, Dustin Dopirak writes. In the same story, I wrote about the disappointment of the 17U Team Indiana team losing in the quarterfinals and Meanstreets’ Kendrick Nunn scoring 26 to beat the Eric Gordon All-Stars in the 15U final.
  • Glenn Robinson III and Edward Seay told Ryan Winn that this summer is about having pride in wearing a SYF jersey for the 16U team.
  • Here is David Snodgress’ photo gallery from Sunday’s 15U final. The team in white is Eric Gordon. Basil Smotherman is 34, Zak Irvin is 21 and Devin Davis is 15. Kendrick Nunn is 25 for Meanstreets, and Alex Foster is 44.
  • Walter Offutt took the opportunity to be close to his old coach and chose Ohio, Dustin writes.
  • Molly Beckwith won the 800 championship at the Big Ten meet, leading IU to a fourth-place finish, Jim Gordillo writes.


There were 28 blog posts during three days of coverage, and many of those were reports from individual games and scouting reports of IU prospects. They go back three pages, so feel free to peruse if you stayed away from your computer this weekend and are catching up this morning.





Blame Dane Fife for Tweeting about the New Radicals yesterday. He loved them in college; I loved them in high school. So here is the one-hit wonder singing “You Get What You Give.”


  1. It has become clearly clear that the clearest way to clear most of the BS from this blog (this post nonwithstanding) is simply for Hugh, Dustin, and (clearly) Korman to post as many basketball-related threads as possible.

    That way, the older threads where people get bored and childish are pushed to the bottom and forgotten.

    One question that we all could benefit a little from is, who is the marketing team or publicist behind the Zeller and Plumlee families? Someone from their hot dog empire? Karl Rove? Whoever it is has done a fantastic job thus far.

  2. I am more than worried about the relationship between DSR and Mcleod. It is not a good thing.
    Zeller is a flat out stud. You must have missed him putting it to Dawson in the state title game. 20 pts and 26 rebounds. He owned the glass and dominated the game to win a state title over Dawson. Not sure what your agenda is.
