Video: Devin Davis in win over Lawrence North

2013 Warren Central junior and IU commitment Devin Davis Jr. scored 27 points and grabbed 10 rebounds on Tuesday night as the host Warriors beat Lawrence North 56-52 in overtime.

Inside the Hall was in attendance and we’ve compiled over four minutes of video of Davis in the embedded media player below:

We’ve also got postgame reaction from Davis and Warren Central coach Greg Graham.

    plays above the rim. I could see a CWat type of player from him at IU, minus the three point range, and more athletic

  • Kelin Blab

    Would be the 2nd best player IU has in the 2012 class, after Ferrell….EASILY!

    If he can develop a jump shot like VO and WS have so far, I see him as one of our best players.

    Wow, what a find!

  • Npantella

    Davis looks much improved.  Power…..he is going to be a stud!

    I dont know bout all of that . But Davis is definetly making strides.

  • Shime

    That is a pretty bold statement that could pan out. I do not know I would put him right up there with Hanner , and Hollowell. He has another year to develope but the sky is the limit for him.

    I hate to sound cliche here, but Davis isn’t the kind of guy that concerns me in regards to rankings. He is a jack of all trades kind of guy that will find a way to contribute. I don’t think he will score a lot, at least early on, but he’ll throw his body all over the place and likely find a way to earn some minutes.

    You could probably make a case for him being underrated, but his style of play and impact on the game isn’t going to change whether he is ranked 66th, 98th or 143rd in the country. He can make an impact in many ways, both offensively and defensively.

    I know everyone says these kinds of things anytime a player they like drops in rankings, but I just think Davis will find a way to contribute regardless of how his stock goes “up” or “down”. 

    Basically, I don’t think his game is “sexy”, if you will, but he gets it done.

    Alex, on Twitter, I heard Jeremy H dropped 38pts in this game… is there a video of his performance too?

  • http://www.indyhshoops.com/ Joe Indy Hoops

    I think you’re talking about a different game.

    Hollowell and his Lawrence Central team played @ Bowman Academy (Gary, IN) last night, and he did score 38, but we weren’t there.

    (Sorry if I misinterpreted your comment)

  • IU_Fan_99

    oh, maybe I misunderstood… I thought they were playing against each other. I’d still like to see that 38 point performance!

    The one thing that i  think is an x factor is hes had great coaching. Greg Graham played at IU and in the NBA. You can tell hes been taught well because he plays within himself and lets the game come to him. Hes not out there jacking up turnaround 30 footers.  He seems to be in the right place at the right time. Loves to rebound. If he rebounds like that at IU were gonna have a weapon. He can make a living bwith putbacks. If he can grow to 6’8 or 6’9 and get  Elstons body hell be a perfect BIG conferece type player. Hellk be a welcome addition.

  • Kelin Blab

    He rebounds very well, is efficient, plays solid D, competes, physical…would take D.Davis over Hollowell 10 out of 10 times…and I like Hollowell but Davis offers more to a team.

  • Kelin Blab

    Joe you are 100% right and 0% wrong about Davis. His rankings mean nothing and his game reflects that. Not a wow you player until you look in the box score and he has 20pts 11 rebounds and you missed most of it.

    I like both Davis and Hollowell a ton but see them as really different players.  Hollowell to me, when you watch him in person, looks like an NBA player when he steps on the floor.  He’s big and long and can shoot from deep with good accuracy.  He’s like CWat in that he can get a shot off over anyone.  He comes across as a big time scorer that can do other things as well but scoring is his thing.  Davis on the otherhand doesn’t have the golden stroke that Hollowell or Hartman have but that’s not a knock, more recognition the other two are a couple of the best looking shooters I’ve seen recently.  Davis is more in the school of Ron Patterson, a hard-nosed do everything, get the job done type. 

    Hollowell if I had to compare is really more like Hartman.  Their deep shooting is a real weapon and beautiful to watch.  They are shooters like Roth and Hulls but 6’6″+.  CWat is a good shooter of course but like Reggie Miller, the mechanics are a little odd but effective.  Hollowell and Hartman in particular are more like Ray Allen (minus the lift) where their mechanics are like poetry, smooth and pure.  They have obviously been well coached at a young age. 

    I remember when Ron Patterson committed I was like wow, this is great that we got one of these guys here from the Indy area because the talent is just off the charts here locally.  Then the flood gates opened and now we are talking about which great player is better than the other great player.

    These guys are creating a brotherhood that will live on for years.

    I think his future is with the NFL, he’s a lineman for Warren Central football.  North Central has some beef as well.

    I love Devin Davis’ game.  I have seen him live a couple of times and he continues to improve.  Joe and Kelin are absolutely correct when they say he fills up the box score and gets it done. 

    I think his rebounding and post up ability will be extremely valuable and I love his potential to draw a lot of fouls on the opposing team’s frontcourt.  One question I have for Joe…how do you see Devin’s defensive ability developing?  I know Lawrence North doesn’t have a good frontcourt and is struggling so they aren’t the best indicator but when I have seen him play, he seems to have a pretty good grip on defense.  In your opinion, do you think he will be an asset defensively for IU’s frontcourt?

    I thought the best play on here was about 1:27 he passed to the corner from the wing, shot missed and he was waiting there for the put back.  He didn’t stand there and watch.
