PURDUE MENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Strong teams grace Indiana AAU scene

    Approaching the state 17-under AAU tournament, several teams look to be strong contenders for the state title.

    In the May 27th update it was seen that Pryor's Bloomington Red squad took the Columbus Shootout and junior point guard Jon Holmes was named the tournament MVP. Holmes was also named the MVP of the Jerry Watson's Future Stars Shootout in May. Bloomington Red teammate Jared Jeffries was named MVP of the Reebok Players Tournament in Toledo in May.

    Meanwhile from the northern part of the state, the Spiece North Stars 17 team continues to get better and better. While Bloomington Red was over in Ohio winning the Columbus Shootout, Spiece North was winning the 57-team Memorial Day Shootout in Merrillville. Spiece North coach Bob Widmeyer has a well balanced 10-man lineup, substituting 5 for 5 at the 4:00 mark of each period. Carlton Baker has been impressive, considering he averages 20+ points in an average of 16 minutes.

    A team that gave Spiece North some trouble in Merrillville was Reggie Tisdale's Spiece South club, featuring 6'2 guard Corey Ryan (Northeastern HS) and 6'5 perimeter threat Aaron Hogg (Warren Central HS).

    Other teams to watch that have been strong at times during the month of May...Sport Youth Foundation, No Excuses and Team Indiana.
