INDIANAPOLIS — The Movement got started in front of a couple thousand Indiana fans and interested onlookers Saturday, as Indiana Elite Team Indiana took the floor with four Indiana commits in the starting lineup.
Yogi Ferrell, Ron Patterson, Jeremy Hollowell and Hanner Perea all showed signs of dominance in a 103-63 win against the Hancock County All-Stars.
Yes, the Hancock County All-Stars. These April AAU tournaments, since the NCAA restricted college coaches from attending, have gotten more regional and, thus, early round competition can be poor for the top teams.
But it allowed the four future Hoosiers to put on a show (a fifth, Peter Jurkin, did not travel to Indiana because of an injury). Ferrell scored 29 points, making eight-of-nine 3-pointers, in an aggressive performance from the point guard.
Hollowell scored 13, and both Patterson and Perea pitched in with 12. Hollowell had one highlight dunk, driving baseline and climbing over an opponent, but Perea had a handful as he showed the incredible athleticism that has made him a top prospect.
The team plays again at 5:45 p.m. or so. I’ll report back after that. In the meantime, here are videos from Ferrell and Hollowell.
End of the Ninth: Ohio State reliever Andrew Armstrong set the Hoosiers down in order in the ninth and Ohio State takes the first game of the series, 6-1.
UPDATE, End of Eighth: Ohio State pulled Drew Rucinski after seven innings for left-hander Andrew Armstrong, and Armstrong almost ran into trouble, surrendering a single and a walk, but he got out of it unscathed and Ohio State heads to the ninth with a 6-1 lead. (more…)
Indiana isn’t necessarily out of contention for Huntington (W.Va.) Prep guard Maurice Aniefiok, his coach Rob Fulford said Friday, but with three official visits scheduled and Aniefiok having self-imposed an April 25 deadline, it doesn’t appear likely that he will become a Hoosier.
Aniefiok is on an official visit to James Madison this weekend and has visits scheduled to Mississippi and Duquesne the next two weekends. He has not visited Indiana nor does he have a visit scheduled there.
“The last time Maurice and I talked, he said he was only going to take three visits,” Fulford said. “He’s on one now and he has one to Ole Miss next weekend. Unless he switches the last one with Duquesne (I don’t think he’s going to visit Indiana).”
Fulford said he didn’t imagine that Aniefiok would push back his deadline to make a trip to IU. He said the Hoosiers have not made a formal scholarship offer — at least it hasn’t come through the school, he said — and it’s unlikely he postpone his decision to wait for one.
“They’ve all been in here to see him,” Fulford said. “Time’s running out. He’s not going to push back a deadline for people who have been in here and had a lot of time to decide.” (more…)
When word first got out that Indiana had traveled to Huntington Prep in West Virginia to watch Maurice Aniefiok, a 6-foot-5 wing, the first question was, “Isn’t there enough of those?”
Problem averted, as Aniefiok will be making three officials visits during the next few weeks and Indiana is not one of them. James Madison, Ole Miss and Duquesne are the schools still going after the 2011 prospect, according to Scout.com.
We’ll be here, as per usual.
According to FoxSports.com’s Jeff Goodman, former Indiana assistant Rob Senderoff has been named the head coach at Kent State.
Senderoff was the assistant coach named most prominently in reports that led to sanctions against Indiana and coach Kelvin Sampson for impermissible phone calls. The majority of the three-way calls that were a point of contention were reportedly initiated by Senderoff.
Senderoff had been an assistant coach at Kent State and has been the interim coach since the job opened.
In addition, former Indiana assistant Roshown McLeod has reportedly resigned from his position at St. Benedict’s Prep in New Jersey.
