    RE: Kellen Dunham - 2012 Guard (Verbal)

    I was a bit shocked this morning to find that Dunham was completely left off the Rivals 150. ESPN has him at 81 overall and he is 16th at his position on scouts (so probably around the same 80 range).

    Here is another ranking that came out that is much more favorable to Dunham (and the Indiana area in general).

    I don't know who this Kendrick guy is, but 13 out of 100 from Indiana? I'm certainly not saying Dunham doesn't belong, but it would seem he's a little biased in his selections. Indiana is loaded with talent (which is the argument I'll here) but not that loaded.

    Probably a little biased to the midwest but it isn't really that crazy. For comparison ESPN has 11 players from Indiana in the top 100. I think it is much better than the top 150 rivals put out.

    So with all this talent from Indiana for 2012 and I note that there are a few who have not committed yet. Do we have any chance with any of them? Especially any of the BIGS?
    PS. I note that I and a few others are classified as junior members, and another is a peon. Whereas I have no problem with this nameless one being a peon, who makes the classifications and what does each mean or represent?

    honestly don't be surprised if this kid turns out to be really special. I have been following him for a long time and take it from me, HE DOES NOT MISS. This kids is going to be fantastic as a bulldog. Every butler fan should be on pins and needles waiting for his arrival. After all he has been getting interest from Kansas, Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana. Butler was lucky to snatch him up early on

    Ha! I named myself the peon. You have a choice in your settings to label yourself anything you would like!

    Haha, I haven't decided what I'm going to do with that yet. I don't know if I want members to have custom user titles or not. I'll probably make it available after a certain number of posts or reputation. I'll also set up the default ranks (which are based on post count) to be college basketball related.

    Kellen Dunham has said his team (Spiece) did not enter the Adidas Invitational and will not be playing.

    He mentioned that they are playing in the EYBL Finals at NIKE Peach Jam next week.

    Peach Jam is underway and Kellen takes the floor against the Texas Titans this morning. Brad Stevens is in attendance watching. Check my last post for a complete schedule of the tournament, and I will try to update with scores.

    Edit:

    Day One
    Cant find stats yet of the game, but Texas Titans lead Indy Spiece by 2 (30-28) at half-time in front of a TON of high DI coaches.

    Game One
    Dunham scored 10 points off of 5/10 FG shooting. He was 0-5 from the three point line, but showed he has more to his game than just a sweet stroke from behind the arc. He also had 2 offensive boards and 2 assists (compared to only 1 turnover) and 0 fouls in 24 minutes against the Texas Titans earlier this morning.

    Spiece won their second game of the day against Louisiana Select in a close match. Will have stats up soon. Dunham and Spiece are 2-0 in the first day of the Peach Jam - no small feat.

    Game Two
    Dunham played a team leading 28 minutes and scored 5 points on 2/10 shooting including 1/6 from behind the arc. Although it seems that Kellen's shot is struggling - he also recorded 4 assists and 2 steals (with zero turnovers) and grabbed a defensive board.

    I am not concerned about the shooting percentages at this point, as I know that Kellen can knock it down - what concerns me a little at this point is that in two games, Kellen has yet to get to the free-throw line.

    With that said it seems as though he is a leader on this very talented Spiece team and has started both games and played significant minutes. His shot will drop, but the fact that he is contributing in other ways shows the type of player he is.

    HUGE game tomorrow morning: 2-0 Spiece take on a LOADED 2-0 Oakland Soldiers at 11:30am.
