Flyin to the Hoop Preview

Flyin to the Hoop is one of the premier events in the entire country, and this year is no different with an absolutely loaded field.

Where Kettering, Ohio (Trent Arena)

When: January 17-20, 2014

Reporting Staff: Brian Snow

Top Players: JaQuan Lyle, Miles Bridges, Thomas Bryant, Keita Bates-Diop, Tyler Ulis, Emmanuel Mudiay, Terrance Ferguson, Isaiah Briscoe, Kelly Oubre, Craig Victor, Luke Kennard, V.J. King, Justin Jackson, Rashad Vaughn, A.J. Harris, Seth Towns, Esa Ahmad, Lourawls Nairn

Looking Forward To: Flyin to the Hoop is always one of the top events in the entire country. A good mix of national talent as well as Ohio teams are included in this event.

Last year Luke Kennard and Justin Jackson put on a big time show with each going for near 40 points in a head-to-head matchup and they will do it again this year. Also it will be interesting to see if JaQuan Lyle can continue his strong play, and how his backcourt running mate Josh Perkins reacts after a slow start to his senior year.

Kelly Oubre had a dynamic summer, can he continue that play in a game where Findlay should have a major advantage. Beyond that, some class of 2016 studs like V.J. King, Justin Jackson, Terrance Ferguson, Derryck Thornton, and Tervell Beck will all be under the microscope.

There are always some game changing performances, and this event should be one of the best as it always is.
