Video: Lyles leads Tech to upset of Cathedral

  • 12/13/2011 8:30 am in

Class of 2014 Indiana commitment Trey Lyles helped lead Arsenal Tech to one of the season’s most thrilling upsets thus far on Friday night.

The 6-foot-9 sophomore scored 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and the host Titans upset Collin Hartman and No. 10 Cathedral 59-58. Lyles knocked down two game winning free throws with 2.9 seconds to go.

Inside the Hall was in attendance and we’ve compiled over five minutes of highlights in the embedded media player below:

    Would not be suprised if Lyles averages 20+ freshman year.

    Imagine the line-ups when Trey is a freshman if we still have everyone. 

    Yogi at the point
    Blackman at the 2 guard
    Jeremy at the 3
    Trey at the 4
    Cody at the 5

    That is obsurd.

    Cody might be gone by the time Lyles get here, but this kid is going to be a stud.  Seems like a great kid too. Thanks for the video.

  • haha, you are sooo right.  That would be a national championship lineup… don’t forget “Buss” Patterson, Jurkin, and Perea either… we are shaping up to have the deepest team in all of college basketball

    That turnaround jumper looks positively NBA-ready.  I can only imagine the damage it will do when he’s at IU!!

    Also, I can’t believe how nicely he gets the ball to swish through the net.  On a ton of his shots, they go in so clean with such perfect rotation the net pops out the top of the basket in an impeccable motion.  Testament to how hard he’s been working on his touch!

    And then… imagine what he’ll be like in a year… in two years… and then realize that we get the “in three years” version of Trey Lyles.  He’s going to be an absolute beast from day 1.

  • I could see Trey being like the player we need Watford to be this season.  A strong inside presence, who can take his man out on the wing if he needs to, but for the most part, stays down low.  Amazing skills and footwork for a Sophmore… Awesome highlights… Thanks ITH

    What about HM-P?? Hanner is going to be a beast by then. RP will have some experience on Blackman too.

    Great highlights. Alex, do you guys have anything on Collin? He was mentioned in the article but that seemed to be it. Was it just an off night for him? 

  • stonaroni

    Or Remy, or AE, or D Davis, or Hartman………..

  • stonaroni

    I really like this kid I just hope his game doesn’t level off.

    Great to see him congratulating CTC in an AP picture after the big win on Sat.  The caption reads about CTC but doesn’t mention Lyles, but the world will know him soon enough.

  • Joe got highlights of Hartman as well. We’ll post sometime this week.

    I honestly think Cody is a four-year guy. I did not realize that he and one of his brothers were valedictorians of their HS classes until the UK broadcast. Academics are clearly very important to him and his family. His brothers were both 4-year guys (when at least Tyler could have gone early last year). What a blessing that would be to this program.

    Alex, we don’t say this enough, but you guys are doing an incredible job! The fact that you are covering some of the games for our commits is huge. I know you don’t fancy yourself a recruiter, but this site certainly has to play a vital role in sustaining commitments from guys who announce early.

    ITH’ers, let’s put our money where our mouth is to keep these guys on the road. Alex needs gas money.

    Holy crap.  I haven’t seen a video of him since last year and he looks a lot better.  Those were some ridiculous fadeaway jumpers.  And how many blocks did he have?  He looked a lot more focused and tough on the boards too.  Wow, just wow.

  • Or in this case, Joe needs gas money. He’s our eyes and ears on the HS trail right now as I’ve been spending most of my time covering the team.

  • Mister Slippery

    I like him. He needs to work on his leaping ability and finishing strong. He’s much better at the turn around fade that inside, but with his size, he should be able to get better.

  • Five blocks per Joe.

    And even more important, from what I remember on that video, he kept most or all of the blocks in bounds rather than just swatting them out of play.  Smart blocks.

    Colin’s D on that first drive is encouraging, glad to see he moves well for his size.

    sophomore – huh?

    Doubt Cody’s a 4-year player.  He’s already in lottery range, as Alex pointed out with his link (#12 pick by Chad Ford).  Maybe Tyler turns pro last year if the lockout wasn’t a possibility or maybe wanted to improve his draft stock, either way it’s not an indicator for what Cody may decide in the future.

    Nothing against Cody if he does leave, unless your parents are rich you go to school to get into the career(s) you want.  If he wants he can pay for 10 PhD’s with the money he’s guarenteed as a lottery pick…heck he wouldn’t need to work unless he wanted anyway. 

    Though for selfish reasons I’m sure we’d all love if he stayed four years.

    yep and fadeaways are the hardest shots to learn. thats an nba level move that 15 or 16 tears old. That kids gonna make alot of money in his life. I mean filthy friggn rich!  Hes a program changing recruit the same as Cody is. When are scouts gonna learn that most recruits from INDIANA  all around game and BB iq. Hes better than 8th in his class.

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    Wow.  This kid has moves like a seasoned NBA vet.  He looks so much like Tim Duncan on the floor it’s ridiculous!

    Hope he sticks around school for a whole career like Duncan did!

  • IUfanPurduePhD

    That step-back baseline fadeaway he hit near the video’s beginning is basically an indefensible shot. Impressive.

  • IUfanPurduePhD

    Not sure who to cheer for with 4.9 seconds left… Colin with the D or Trey with the O? (Not a fan of that foul call btw)

  • PistolPat411

    This kid reminds me of new Indiana Pacer, David West.  As a HS Sophomore this kid has an un-guardable turn around fade away.  I can’t wait to see him and the likes of Yogi, Hanner, and Hollowell on the court together…

  • N71

    I need a spell check feature created in Disqus for Christmas.  Absurd…my apologies.  Hanner at the 4, Trey at the 5, and Cody with the Pacers is another view.

  • ufo3

    Trey Lyles is potentially the best of all of the current recruits.
    Lyles is a beast.
    6’10” HS Sophomore with his skills!!!
    He is a Tim Duncan clone with better perimeter skills.

  • BEAT KENTUCKY

    Man this kid is special , I think Derek Willis is headed our way the year before … but this guy is so smooth . Tim Duncan Jr . And we think this year is fun …. man oh man CAN’T WAIT !
