UPDATE: UofL Hoops Recruits

Louisville point guard recruit Peyton Siva responded with two big efforts after his team's first loss late last month to Bainbridge. Stephen Van Treese, Jeremy Tyler and Josh Langford have also posted standout performances in recent days.

After suffering their first loss of the season, Peyton Siva and Franklin responded in a big way with a 65-53 win over Seattle Prep. Siva was sensational in the victory, connecting on 11-of-17 shots while scoring 32 points.

"I'd say it's one of the better games he's played," Franklin coach Jason Kerr told the Seattle Times. "He was patient enough that it looked like he was going at them nonstop, but he was actually going at them at very specific times."

Siva had 27 points in an 81-44 win over Chief Sealth on Jan. 31. In two games since Franklin's first loss this season to Bainbridge, Siva has averaged 29.5 points.

Mike Marra made 2 of 5 three-pointers to finish with 7 points in a 62-56 win over Cushing Academy on Feb. 4. Marra also grabbed three rebounds and had three assists. In a 92-66 loss to Brewster Academy Jan. 31, Marra scored only three points on 1 of 7 shooting. On Jan. 30, Marra scored 17 points on 7 of 15 shooting, 3 for 11 from three in an 85-71 loss to New Hampton School. Marra's team started the season 15-2 but have lost 3 of their past 4 games.

Stephen Van Treese had 15 points and six rebounds in Lawrence North's 69-58 win over Carmel Feb. 6. Van Treese scored 16 point on 8-14 shooting and had 12 rebounds and 3 blocks in a 66-47 win over North Central Jan. 23. Van Treese averages 14 points and nine rebounds for Lawrence North, ranked the No. 3 team in Indiana's Class 4A.

Ryan Taylor scored 12 points in Lawrence North's win over Carmel, while Justin Martin pitched in nine. Martin scored all of his point on three three-point field goals. Martin had 15 points, while Taylor added 10 in the win over North Central.

Jeremy Tyler scored a game-high 37 points to lead No. 3 ranked San Diego to a 76-66 win over No. 2 Hoover Jan. 30. Tyler, who averages 30.4 points, has a big game this weekend against rival Foothill Christian.
