Spiece Memorial Day Tournament

There were not as many loaded teams this weekend as there were in Bloomington last weekend. I will do a couple of reports but nothing like last week. I am going to try to organize them a little bit better this week instead of jumping around so much.

Spiece Indy Heat-Betts

Steven Jamison 6'4 SF
-Long, decent athlete (not a freak athlete), streaky shooter, above average motor. I would like to see him improve his handles and shooting to be a true SG at the next level.

Ken Mullens 5'9 PG-Quick and strong were the two things I saw from him since Teague and Thomas do a lot of the ball handling on the team.

DeShaun Thomas 6'7 PF-Transitioning to more of a SF but still is a post first. Handles the ball better than he shoots it in terms of perimeter skills although his range is getting better and more consistent.

Kristian Smith 6'4 SF-Intriquing prospect to me. I haven't seen him a bunch but looks like he could be a low D1 or D2 type of player. Decent length, solid shooter, ok athlete.

Marquis Teague 6'2 PG-The man, the myth, the legend. Great athlete, very quick, jumps very well, slow release of jumper but usually creates so much space it doesn't matter.

Ethan Jacobs 7'0 C-Showed a good looking jumper to 17 feet, blocked a bunch of shots. I would like him to be more aggressive and tougher inside especially rebounding. He lacks that "I'll rip your head off to get the ball" type of attitude that all great big men have. A fast developing player after not playing much early in his career. Could be a big-time player if he has a year of prep school.

Russell Byrd 6'7 SF-A true 6'6 or 6'7 shooter that is quick for his size and at least tries to defend quicker, smaller perimeter guys. With some added muscle he could definitely guard 4's in the Big Ten, but it looks like he would like to stay a 3 man in college.

More to come soon.
