Patrick Ewing Jr. played well Thursday night in the 30th annual Jordan Capital Classic Regional game. He scored 11 points and went 5-for-10 from the field in 16 minutes. He set the tone for the white team, who routed the blue team 108-86, by scoring the team's first five points.
Although he performed well on offense, he was a bigger factor on defense. He pulled down 7 rebounds and blocked 3 shots. He consistently hustled up and down the court, looking for the ball, and to establish good rebounding position down low. He also made several good passes, ending the game with three assists.
Ewing continues to impress scouts with his ability to play down in the post while also taking his man out on the perimeter. He can do it all, and Indiana needs him to fill the hole in the lineup left by departing senior Jeff Newton.
Wednesday was signing day for recruits, but Ewing still has not signed his intent to go to Indiana. Some speculation has occurred that he is considering other schools, but he is still expected to sign early next week.
