Video: Lyles, Delaney talk about Tech’s win over Cathedral

After dropping a pair of games to Lawrence Central and Carmel, Indianapolis Tech came into Friday evening’s meeting with Cathedral looking for its first win over the Fighting Irish in 13 years.

Tech trailed by as many as five late in the fourth quarter, but with five seconds remaining and his team trailing by one, sophomore forward Trey Lyles received an inbounds pass, made a move and was fouled by Cathedral junior Collin Hartman with 2.9 seconds left.

Lyles, who committed to Indiana in September of 2010, calmly stepped to the line and made both free throws to lift Tech past Cathedral, 59-58.

The sophomore forward finished with 24 points, nine rebounds and three blocked shots while Hartman, who is also verbally committed to the Hoosiers, ended up with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

Inside the Hall caught up with Lyles and Tech coach Jason Delaney for reaction following the big win:

    Lof of maturity in that young man-…personally and “game-wise”

    I am glad to hear Trey Lyles knocked them down, but come on Hartman!  You don’t foul with 2.9 seconds left.

    Wish I would have attended the game.  I’ve not seen Trey interviewed and wow, very well spoken.  Trey is similar to Cody in significance as a recruit.  He’ll be a top player nationally that will allow us to sustain our place as a top 5 team.  What I really like about what we’re doing, which has as much to do with our state culture and the kids, is we’re building our program with well spoken, smart, very good players but students of the game.  Imagine if you are Jalen Coleman, just think about how exciting the prospect of playing with Trey, Blackman, and the others would be.  The level of collective basketball knowledge this group will have will be second to none.  Their talent will have them off to the NBA for a period but their knowledge, and what they will learn from each other will be great.  Coach Crean mentions how well Cody has been tought the game.  These other guys have a similar foundation growing up in Indiana.  The “movement” is creating an institution in Bloomington that could really become something special, 1976 like, UCLA, etc.  Great kids that play the game in a way that all others aspire to immulate.

    Tim Duncan with range! Here’s one that if he can avoid injury that will be as good as anybody at the next level! Go Tech!

    Lyles is bigger and stronger than Hartman (a mismatch).  Lyles got the inside position and would have scored the winning basket if Hartman hadn’t fouled him.  He had to foul and hope he didn’t make more than 1 free throw.
