PURDUE MENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Carl Landry shoots the lights out in Arizona

    Landry turned in three of his finest performances this season during the Mesa Rotary Shootout / Valley of the Sun Classic in Arizona this past week.

    In game one, Landry hit 9-of-10 from the field for 18 points in a 91-71 victory over Central Arizona (6-5). Teammate, and Indianapolis native, D'Andre Peyton has career highs of 18 points and 10 rebounds.

    Game two was almost identical to game one, as Landry again hit for 9-of-10 from the field for 20 points, and grabbed 7 rebounds. Landry sat for quite a bit of the game in foul trouble, and did not play the final 2:22 after fouling out. He led Vincennes to a 86-69 win over Chandler-Gilbert.

    Vincennes completed the sweep of the tournament by defeating Mesa (8-6), 92-78. Saving the best for last, Landry scored a career high 29 points on 10-of-12 shooting from the field and 9-of-10 from the line. He also grabbed nine rebounds.

    For the three-game shootout, Landry shot 27-of-31 and averaged 23.3 points per game. The run in Arizona improved his season scoring average from 13.8 to 15.5 points per game. He's shooting 70.8 percent from the field and 68.1 percent from the freethrow line, plus averaging 6.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.1 blocks per game. His new shooting percentage should move him into the top five among current Division I junior college players.

    Vincennes improved their record to 14-1, and moved up to No. 2 in the latest NJCAA Divison I poll this week.
