Teague, the No. 5 player in his class according to Scout.com, is considering IU, Louisville, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, Purdue, Ohio State and Kentucky. We’ve gathered 13 clips from Spiece Indy Heat’s 75-64 win over Indiana Elite at Bloomington South. Teague is wearing No. 12. Enjoy.

    Quite honestly I would not let that tape out, if I were Teague. He only passed when his shot was not there. The tape was 2:14 long, couldn't find one defensive stop? I am not saying he's no good, I would have to see a lot more.

    Kelin,

    I agree with your general sentiment about the AAU style of play. I look at it as highly organized pick-up ball. Relative talent, attitude and style of play can be discerned, but it is important to know who the opposition is. But you don't see a lot of weak-side help defense being played and I haven't seen a charge taken in any of these videos. I don't think teams run defenses designed to take away the other team's best player. So, to me, these are show-case types of games, not hotly contested battles where a player might be asked to sacrifice stats for wins or play outside their comfort zone.

    I want to thank Inside the Hall for posting these videos. They have really helped me understand much more about the players we are recruiting. Its fun to watch them play.

    Dave….all of what you said leads me to believe if player rankings are based on these type of games, they hold almost no water what so ever…..

    What happened to the days of the BC camps, 5 star camps, and shooting camps….

    Makes sense. I could tell the kid was a stud watching him jog up and down the court a few times.
