HD Video: Trey Lyles at John Lucas Midwest Invitational

  • 10/09/2011 10:17 pm in

Top prospects from across the country gathered on Saturday and Sunday for the 2011 John Lucas Midwest Invitational at HOOPS in Louisville, Kentucky. Among the participants were several kids from Indiana, including both of the Hoosiers’ class of 2014 verbal commitments — James Blackmon Jr. and Trey Lyles.

The two-day invitational began with skills instruction on Saturday with two games to cap off the evening. Sunday morning saw more skills instruction followed by two more games to round out the event. Individual scoring was not kept in the games — each comprised of eight five-minutes quarters — but Lyles was one of the standouts on the Bullets, coached by former Louisville forward Tony Williams. The Bullets also featured Jabari Parker, the No. 1 player nationally in 2013 according to ESPN and Scout.com.

Inside the Hall was there for all four of Lyles’ contests and has compiled over four minutes of high definition video of the five-star forward (wearing jersey No. 132), which is available in the embedded media player below. (Note: Expand the video to full screen by using the arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the player.)

    Trey is going to be a great college basketball player.  I am so excited he is going to be playing for the Hoosiers.  He can do soo many things. I was impressed with his ball handling, it looks to have improved from past footage.  His range looks nice as well.  If the ball handling, range and athleticism continue to rise he will just be tougher and tougher.

    Very nice.  Thanks for the footage guys.

    First, thanks a lot ITH team for all the great content as of recent (and I guess recent I also mean the past 3 years) the videos, interviews and articles are awesome.

    Second, Trey Lyles is looking good, he is just a soph, he has three more years to develop, get bigger and stronger…I am looking forward to the next few years of IUBB but I am very excited for when Trey and Blackmon and the rest of the 2014 class, hopefully J. Lyle and Alexander (if we get a 5th in the class – Russell or Poindexter ) to get on campus.

    Lastly, who is #82 in the neon green shoes on Trey’s team? That kid is a good pg and can slash, dish and finish at the rim. I say CTC should give him a closer look.

     Go Hoosiers…

    Trey Lyles is a really good sophomore! Keyword sophomore….he will not be a you tube wow you type of player…similar to time Duncan. Unless you are a fan of fundamental basketball, good footwork, and smart passes.  He has a nice game that will be a load in college. In high school, I hope he gets that “I am going to dominate a game attitude.”

    I recall an interview with him & he was talking about how his HS coach is really working with him on getting that edge & dominating their games.  Said he’d been maybe too willing to pass, but was really focusing on asserting his skills – excited to see how that turns out for this year’s HS season!

    Awesome video of Trey. I love his all-around game. Alex- Will you be posting a list of who’s coming to Hoosier Hysteria this weekend? If not, no big deal! Thanks for all your hard work to keep us Hoosier basketball fans happy and wanting more.

  • Yeah, I should have something up in the next few days.

    This kid is good, and by good I mean really really good.  He is so smooth and polished for such a young player.  I was very impressed to see some added muscle, and he also looked to have added some explosion and athleticism.  Still not the most athletic big man, but he has improved in this area.

    Good things come to those who wait…this wait for 2012 and 2014 is killing me.

    Willing, unselfish passer at his size is always nice to see. He reminds me of a shorter Tim Duncan.

    Thanks Alex! I will be looking forward to it. Can’t wait until Saturday!

    Glad to see Blackmon tweeting about CTC coming to see him at open gym this week. Early commitments are great, but I always wonder how many will flake out. Sounds like this one is strong.

    Wow!  Trey has improved a ton from this time last year.  He is a hard worker, and very cerebral.  He seems more like a wing to me as well.  He could still grow a couple of inches.  I really like the Duncan comparison.  He gets to the basket with ease, and will be better at finishing as he continues to mature.  That was some great competition he was playing against.  He has taken advantage of all the great opportunities he had this summer.

    I will be there, if that is what you mean. 

  • I was just about to comment that he looks and plays a little like a baby duncan…

  • MitchellBMitch

    Thanks, do you have any information regarding his potential as a prospect or who/what schools are showing interest.

    I may be off on my ability to evaluate, but he seemed like he showed all the right tools to be a legit high-major pg.

    CTC always recruits…Go Hoosiers…

    I know, I was joking.  But I will definitely be there.  Hoosier Scoop listed a bunch of guys who are supposed to be there, including all 5 of the 2012 guys.  A bunch of guys from KY.
