Gordon is here now, and apparently he’s going to coach this half. He did, indeed, have school work to do before he could come here. Same with Ellis. He has a paper and a final.
Half: Indiana 60, Noblesville Area All-Stars 47
An un-spirited first half of play from the recruits, who are without the two players who drive the team. Lots of inside passes to Thomas (16 points) and Holman (13 points). They’re playing against shorter, weaker players who have little chance.
Jordan Crawford isn’t the point guard of the future. Unless Kelvin Sampson knows how to turn him into one. But it seems like Sampson would rather have a guy with a built-in hard drive for that position. Crawford doesn’t. He’s a slasher and a scorer.
My guess is that Gordon and Ellis aren’t here because of classes. The summer session ends Friday, so finals are happening soon and papers are due.
About to get under way here. No Eric Gordon or Jamarcus Ellis.
