Bassett to UAB

By   |   Tuesday, Jul. 8, 2008 - 12:28 AM   |   12 comments

Former Hoosier Armon Bassett has decided to transfer to UAB, according to several sources I’ve talked to. I haven’t been able to reach Bassett yet, but I knew he was certainly leaning toward heading south.

He’ll be reunited with Mike Davis, who originally recruited the 6-1 point guard out of Terre Haute to Indiana.

A little about me

So a few posters have been asking who this “Hugh” guy is and also what is the deal with “H. Williams”? So, I thought I’d finally get around to explaining myself to you people, you devoted fans of IU.

My full name is Hugh Williams Kellenberger. My father is also Hugh Kellenberger, and it was eventually decided at my last job (in the same town my father worked) that a distinction should be made. Mainly for his sanity, because I am not sure he was really willing (or able) to answer questions about local sports.

More on Hulls, Capobianco

By   |   Monday, Jul. 7, 2008 - 11:29 AM   |   10 comments

Because of space limitations, I was unable to get in everything I wanted from my conversations with IU commitments Jordan Hulls and Bobby Capobianco.

Since, you know, the internet (thank you, Al Gore) is a limitless universe, I figured I would empty out the ol’ notebook (don’t know why I said that, because I recorded the interviews and my notebook just has a few questions in it, but anyhow).

The main thing for Hulls right now is preparing to play a Big Ten schedule. That means he’s trying to get stronger and faster.

Hulls, Capobianco working together to improve

By   |   Monday, Jul. 7, 2008 - 9:24 AM   |   6 comments

Here’s a story that ran in today’s paper, written by new guy H. Williams Kellenberger.Â


CINCINNATI — Indiana basketball history will likely remember both Bobby Capobianco and Jordan Hulls as coach Tom Crean’s first commitment and Hulls as the hometown kid with a family history intrinsically linked to the Hoosiers.

For now, though, they’re rising high school seniors that play on the same Indiana Elite AAU team.

“That’s the upper hand,” Capobianco said of he and Hulls playing together now. “Knowing what a guy thinks, how he plays.”

Sunday, the two played a major role in Indiana Elite’s 74-71 win over Capital City out of Pickerington, Ohio, during the It Takes 5ive Classic.

Hulls scored 14 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, with a couple of assists, while sharing point guard duties with former North guard Ray McCallum, now of Detroit Country Day.

Crean’s path in Cincinnnati

By   |   Sunday, Jul. 6, 2008 - 7:05 PM   |   35 comments

Here are a few of the teams and players we know Indiana coach Tom Crean (and assistant Tim Buckley) were watching today at the “It Takes 5ive” event on the campus of the University of Cincinnati:

  • He pulled double duty at 2:40, standing between courts 3 and 4. On court 3, he could watch Jordan Hulls and Bobby Capobianco help Indiana Elite One (17-under) to a 74-71 win. He also had a chance to see Stephan Van Treese play for only the third time. But Crean also watched the Atlanta Celtics lose to the All Ohio Force, all the while making sure that Celtics star Christian Watford knew he was there. Indiana is very high on the 6-8 wing forward — and he on the Hoosiers.
  • At 4 p.m., Crean ventured over to the student recreation center to see Indiana Elite’s Team Indiana 15-under group. Coaches in the area are trying to be sure to evaluate the squad, which has three foreign players — brought to the U.S. by Adams — over 6-8, plus an assortment of other promising players (one, Vinny Zollo, has already committed to Kentucky).
  • After that, Crean scooted over to a nearby court to see what Indiana Elite’s other team of rising sophomores, Indiana Elite One, had going. Elite One is anchored by the two youngest brothers in the most recent Indiana family dynasties: Marshall Plumlee (6-10) and Cody Zeller (6-8). Indiana has interest in both, and there’s no question both have the talent to live up to their name. The Hoosiers are also after Spencer Turner, a Bloomington South guard who plays for Elite. He’s also hearing from North Carolina, Duke and every other Big Ten school other than Northwestern and Penn State, he said.
