May Classic mid-day report

Halfway through this Saturday at the May Classic, and it’s been an interesting day to say the least. Among the noteworthy occurrences:

* Brebuef and Spiece point guard PJ Thompson (2014) got tangled up with an opponent this morning, drawing a double technical foul. When he asked what he did, he received a second technical foul and was ejected. That got the coach, PJ’s father, going, and he ultimately opted to pull his team off the court and walk away at the 10-minute mark of the first half.

* 2015 point guard Hyron Edwards, who took an unofficial visit to Indiana Friday, tweaked his ankle this morning, although it seemed to do little to hamper his game, and Indiana Elite remained unbeaten this summer.

* 2013 IU commit Collin Hartman of Cathedral was back on the court with the Eric Gordon 17s team after sitting out the last few weeks with a concussion.

* Louisville Magic coach Ellis Myles, a former Louisville player, saw three players foul out in a 68-64 loss to St. Louis Gateway, then proceeded to share his displeasure with the assembled media, saying that his team would not return to Bloomington again. Apparently, they also had a bad experience last year as well. And a side note, Kentucky commit Derek Willis went scoreless in that game.

* And finally, in a game that just finished a few minutes ago, Cathedral point guard and IU target Jalen Coleman brought new meaning to the term free-throw line jumper when he left his feet on a free throw attempt in a loss to Thompson’s Spiece squad.

More when we get a chance.


  1. For some reason Coleman jumps on all his free throws. Noticed that on Feb. 4 at Lawrence Central. Very strange. He is a great player tho, at least from what I’ve seen.

  2. He missed the free throw. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player at that level jump on his free throws. I remember the Derek Harper foot shuffle back in the day, but not jumping.
