TEAM SCORE: 16U Meanstreets 71, JSA Indiana Express 26
MICHAEL RAMEY: The 6-foot-5 rising junior guard from Southport scored 18 points including a pair of 3-pointers
T.J. BELL: The 6-foot-7 rising junior forward from Bloomington South had 21 points.
RAMEY SAID: “(The recruiting process) is really starting to pick up for me now. I’ve had a lot of coaches come in lately during the viewing period. Arizona State, Michigan, IU, Notre Dame, St. Joseph’s, Western Kentucky, Indiana State. … I guess I’ve just been playing better. I guess that’s it.”
BELL SAID: “I’m just trying to get better at everything.”
MY THOUGHTS: It was tough to judge either player on this game just because it was a route from the jump and the talent gap was massive. JSA had absolutely no answer for Bell or Ramey or anyone else for that matter. But it is evident that Ramey can shoot the basketball extremely well either by spotting up beyond the 3-point line or shooting off the dribble from about 15 feet. Now that he’s up to 6-foot-5, he can dunk now too, though, and he showed on at least one baseline drive that he can put the ball on the deck and take it to the basket.
How Bell will translate to the college game is hard to tell right now, obviously, as he has two more years of high school left. But he’s got very good athleticism, he runs the floor and finishes in transition and he has at least some measure of toughness, enough to kill JSA on the boards anyway. Bell already has an offer from Indiana as well as several others, and the Hoosiers are showing interest in Ramey. If nothing else, it was obvious that both are worthy of at least some attention.
