Kentucky Hoopfest Rundown

Louisville, KY – With shoe camps over a number of college coaches tripped to Louisville to check out a lot of the mid west talent. The day was rather uneventful, but many coaches were out to be seen by certain players. Take the coaches from Xavier and Wake Forest, for example. Each had majority of their staff on hand to check in on a few guys.

Jeff Teague, PG, Spiece Indy Heat – The story of the day had to have been this guy. Xavier and Wake Forest went toe-to-toe tracking every game he played at the Hoopfest. Teague played well and proved that he can run a team. He got to the basket with ease and had some nice finishes at the hoop. The main negative with Teague is that rarely shoots jump shots, which means his jumper might need some work.

Gerald Robinson, PG, Nashville Celtics – The knock on Robinson was that he wasn't a great shooter, however today he was lighting it up from all over the court. Robinson used his quicks to get in the lane and often times dished it off for an assist or dropped in a floater.

Cole Aldrich, C, Fox Valley Skillz – Some have questioned Aldrich's play as of late, but there wasn't anyone questioning his performance at the Hoopfest. He worked hard in the paint to get good position and was trying to dunk on people through out the day. He also displayed some nice post moves as he scored on a jump hook and a step through in the lane.

Dante Jackson, SF, KY Hoopstars Blue – It didn't take Jackson long to make an impact in the Hoopstars game against the Spiece Central Stars. Jackson went to work right away by going to the basket and playing solid defense. His pull-up-jumpers were going down and he helped his team dismantle the Spiece Central Stars by nearly 40 points. His great leadership skills and strong desire to win will help him at the next level.

Korie Lucious, PG, DTA – Where has Lucious been all summer? That's a good question. What we do know is he certainly came to play today. His handles were on point and he was hitting every shot he took. In the final game of the day he went for 21 points and hit a bunch of off the dribble threes helping his team beat the Fox Valley Skillz in the tournament.

Kenny Frease, PF, CBIZ – Coming off a decent showing at Nike All-American camp Frease played well on the third day of the Hoopfest. He got a few touches inside that he was able to finish for dunks. However his team didn't get him many looks on the block so it was hard to gauge his post moves. However, he stands 6-10 and is well skilled.

James Johnson's AAU Coach, Tree Adams, said he's hearing from Indiana, Cincinnati, Wyoming, Purdue, Arkansas, Notre Dame, Kansas and Arizona State.

Korie Lucious said he likes Michigan State, Florida and Georgetown.

Kenny Frease mentioned Xavier, Indiana, OSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Miami and Dayton. He also said he likes Xavier the most right now because of their coaches and the fact that he's seen their campus a bunch.

Dante Jackson said his top three schools are Michigan, Xavier and Dayton.

The one and only Michael Jordan was in the house checking out both of his sons, who play for the Rising Stars. For the second time in a week Jordan was caught sporting a pink polo.
