Indiana Elite One vs. Capital City

Indiana Elite listens to coach Kenny Blackwell’s pre-game talk.

[3:10 UPDATE]

Tom Crean has just arrived at court 3 to watch a few of his future players. He stopped to shake hands with UCLA coach Ben Howland on his way in. Howland is presumably here watching Van Treese.


Five courts have been set up here on the main floor at the Fifth Third Arena.

On court three, the Bloomington-basked Indiana Elite One team — its top 17-under club — is playing against a team called Capital City that, frankly, I don’t know a whole lot about.

Though Elite leads 21-16 with nine minutes left in the first half, you can see how much trouble they’re having getting back into it. They haven’t played an organized game since late May and are without star center Mason Plumlee, who is trying out for a spot on USA Basketball’s 18 and under national team.

Indiana assistant coach Tim Buckley is here watching the game. He’s carefully watching Jordan Hulls and Bobby Capobianco, who’ve already committed to IU, and is evaluating Stephan Van Treese, the Lawrence North forward who hasn’t been offered by the Hoosiers yet.
