Kenny Kaminski, a 6-7 forward from Medina (Ohio) in the class of 2012, is beginning to receive some interest from Indiana.
Assistant coach Tim Buckley watched Kaminski play for Team Pride (Michigan) on Friday during the Kentucky Hoopfest.
What Buckley saw was a skilled big man that scored 13 points, including a 3-pointer, in a win.
“We’re getting a lot of exposure and our team is playing well together,” Kaminski said. “It’s always good to know someone is watching, but I try not to think about it and just go out there and play my game.”
In addition to Indiana, Ohio State and Michigan State are interested in Kaminski, who said he can play small or power forward, depending on matchups.
Kaminski did visit Indiana’s campus earlier this summer.
“I really liked it,” Kaminski said. “I liked the location, Assembly Hall is great and I also like coach Crean a lot and how he brought back the Indiana program.”
When Darryl Baker almost single-handedly led Team Southern Indiana to a come-from-behind victory in the closing seconds Friday at the Kentucky Hoopfest in Louisville, it was easy for some in the crowd to forget one thing.
Baker is only 14 years old, and his teammates and opponents are all two years older.
Baker, who scored a game-high 24 points, is a 6-foot-1 point guard with incredible finishing skill. Down 54-49, he found a teammate in the corner for a 3; tipped an inbounds pass that went off the opponent’s hand and gave Baker the ball back; was fouled, missing the first free throw and making the second; and then picked up another loose inbounds pass and got off a finger roll that just rolled off the rim.
Baker, who will play at Jeffersonville, said he is not paying attention yet to recruiting.
“I just play ball,” said Baker, who did attend Indiana’s Elite Camp.
Baker did say Indiana, North Carolina and Connecticut were the schools, among others, that he would like to be recruited by.
As expected, a crazy day full of basketball action in the debut of this national AAU tournament.
It’s long been a complaint that America no longer produces dominant centers. And, Sports Illustrated’s Seth Davis wrote today, that remains true in the class of 2010.
Davis, who spent two days in Cleveland for the LeBron James’ tournament and a day at the Reebok All-American Camp in Philadelphia, said he thought the class of 2010 could be described by one word: wiry.
Also included in his evaluation of several Indiana prospects, including Kyrie Irving, Marquis Teague and Stacey Poole. The nugget about Irving is fairly interesting, but I won’t spoil it.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The college coaches lined up late Friday afternoon to watch the Spiece Indy Stars 2012 team with good reason.
Indiana’s Tom Crean and Tim Buckley, Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and Dwayne Stephens, Purdue assistant Paul Lusk, Iowa assistant LaVall Jordan and others were on hand to watch some of the best players Indiana has to offer in 2012.
For the Kentucky Hoopfest, Spiece brought Lawrence Central’s Jeremy Hollowell, Broad Ripple’s Ron Patterson, Southport’s Kellon Thomas and Avon’s Austin Burgett. (more…)
Aaron Thomas is excited. Really excited.
The 6-foot-4, 185-pound guard from Cincinnati (Ohio) Western Hills is one of the early success stories of the July AAU recruiting season. (more…)
Gearing up for the AAU girls’ basketball tournament in Bloomington, which starts with a skills camp Sunday, and I thought I’d throw out some video of 2010 IU recruit Andrea Newbauer as a warmup. Stay tuned for updates over the next few days.
