Video: Hanner Perea at the 2011 Vincennes Jamboree

2012 forward Hanner Perea and the La Lumiere Lakers tipped off the 2011-2012 season with three games on Sunday at the Vincennes Jamboree at Vincennes University.

Inside the Hall was there and we’ve compiled over two minutes of highlights of the future Hoosier 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.)

    Only thing needed is a little Wade like rock polishing.

    Crean is looking for the polishing cloth he used on Dwayne as we speak and with quite the twinkle in his eye I suspect.

    I feel bad for the rim

    People are selling him short calling him just an athlete. I saw several post moves in this video that he would have struggled to complete just a year ago, his jump shot actually has a good stroke to it. Yes he’s a ridiculous dunker, leaper, etc, but he’s turning into a true basketball player. And with someone like Yogi throwing the oops…salivating at the thought

  • Hanner looks to have pretty good shooting mechanics and a nice touch around the rim. I think his midrange game will fill out nicely.

    They are going to have to replace assembly hall because its gonna be like an earthquake w when this guy gets there.

    This kid is raw.  I liked this video as well.  I saw a little more floor game from him.  I think a lot of people get enamored with the dunks, but he had a nice reverse lay up, a put back moving left and using his left hand, a 10 footer moving across the lane, a free throws in a very close game.

    All of the aspects of a star is there.  Give him a summer in Cook Hall, a weight room, and individual workouts and he will be able to contribute nicely in 2012-13.

    Damn IU is going to be good!

    I believe interestingly enough some of these games were against college players.

    A developing drop step w/ either hand, a hard dribble spin move, a constantly improving mid range game, and numerous other improvements leave me feeling very excited about this kid.  We all know that there really isn’t a ceiling of talent for him because of his unreal athleticism, so to see these nice gains in skill level before completing his senior year of high school is a huge bonus.  The development he makes through this year and beginning this summer when he makes the trek down to Bloomington could be absolutely phenomenal.

    makes me wonder what the starting lineup will be come 2012. Anybody have any thoughts?

  • midwesthoops

    Hulls, Oladipo, Sheehey, Watford, Zeller, with Yogi mixing in and out. 

  • You have to stand next to him, he is built like a brick house. He is incredibly built!

  • BarryNC

    That may be the starters at the start of the season but there is no way that Yogi, Hanner, and Harris are not starting soon.  I put these three with Cody and Watford.

    Hanner is a beast, he will be punishing the rim and tearing down rebounds. If he can get a consistent shot from mid range, he would be deadly.

    One thing that gets over looked with Hanner, and it was evident in this video, he converts at the line, and with the way he plays, he will most likely be getting fouled at least a few times a game…

    Go Hoosiers…

    I had season tickets from 1981-1991 and have seen some of the best games ever played in Assembly Hall. It is going to be nice to see the caliber talent back on the floor again that was there in the 80’s. I hope these kids coming in can appreciate the comparison. Those players were incredible and I don’t compare players often but from watching videos this morning it looks like we are getting our second version of Zeke and another Landon Turner. Turner was a freaky athlete like Hanner but more polished. Turner couldn’t handle the ball as well but had great hands for receiveing passes and a hell of a nose for the ball. These 2 {Yogi and Hanner} could leave a mark on the program unlike any other duo that has passed through the Hall depending on how long they are here together. Then you add the likes of Hollowell and Patterson with Cody and the possibility of Gary Harris….are you freaking kidding me? You younger fans that havent seen a really good team here before…..HANG ON….ITS GONNA BE A HELL OF A RIDE! GO HOOSIERS!

    Agree with you to some extent.. Without a doubt Jordy is the leader of this team and I believe a key part to the success of IU hoops over the next two seasons. He is hungry to win, and as former Mr. Basketball I don’t think he’ll give up his starting spot easily. BUT Yogi flat out has too much talent to keep him off the floor. With that being said, this is a situation where I actually wouldn’t mind CTC’s hockey-style substitutions while our roster actually has depth so both get a lot of playing time, both are fresh whenever they’re on the court, and our stellar freshman class gets some solid experience early and often.

    Good post. You and I are of the same vintage, Kfdchev. My parents had season tickets from ’80-91. When I see Hanner, it brings back memories of Ray Tolbert. Scary to think Hanner is even more athletic than Tolbert.

  • Best video I have seen from Hanner thus far… “Mr. I dunk everything” has apparently been working on his game quite a bit, and I have to say, I am very impressed with the progress that he has made.  I know people are talking about the way he is built, and he does have a very impressive build, but imagine what he will look like after a year or two at Indiana… He will be a monster!
