Class of 2012 Indiana signee Jeremy Hollowell and his Lawrence Central team opened the Marion County Tournament last Monday with a 72-41 win over Decatur Central. Hollowell led Lawrence Central with a team-high 24 points and nine rebounds.

Inside the Hall was in attendance for the contest and we’ve compiled over two minutes of highlights of Hollowell in the embedded media player below. A postgame video interview is also available after the jump:

    His shot from outside is smooth, effortless. It will look even better when Yogi is hitting him for a Matt-Roth-esque bomb from (317).

  • Pretty sad excuse for a crowd at this game.

  • What I really like about Hollowell is that he’s a shot maker, not just a shooter. He can create his own scoring opportunities and he’ll connect on some very tough looks.

    Agreed.  His game seems to have (or could easily develop) the quality that Watford lacks most — beating his man off the dribble.

    He will be a load to deal with when on a really good team like IU.  I see a similar effect as to what Glen Rice had at Michigan.  You have to guard his 3 point shooting which will be difficult because he’s 6’8″ but he can do so much more.  If you run out on him he can just go by you for a mid range floater or on to the rack for a layup or dunk.  If he misses he’s 6’8″, good chance he can get the rebound for another shot.  That will make for a bunch of points.  Today he’s the focus of every team’s defense, at IU he will have a little more space I bet and be is a position to put up big numbers.  He’ll need to earn the minutes but I like his chances.

    Agreed. Watford is not exactly fleet-of-foot. But he has gotten quicker laterally from last year. He, Verdell and Hulls are just not very quick players.

    IU should be VERY good next year though. Can’t wait for some help on the interior and a real PG.

    Something about his game kind of reminds me of Creek’s back when he wasn’t injured.  Just a smooth shot and effortless drives to the basket without forcing shots.  Also making plays for his teammates.  I wonder how well they would play together on the same team.

    How is he on the defensive end?  

  • N71

    OK but not a specialist in the art like Victor, Remy, Ron, or Hanner.  I will say with certainty he’s better at D versus a couple of our current starters.  He will not be a liability on the defensive end, I don’t think, so pair that with what you get on the offensive end and the result should be a bunch of playing time.

    Reminds me of Uconn’s Jeremy Lamb.

    I have seen Hollowell play several times and I really like his game.  Diverse offensive game, ability to create his own shot, intelligent player, good rebounder, physically mature and pretty athletic. 

    I am really looking forward to Sectional 10 this year.  It’s at Tech High School and features a load of Division 1 players, several of them IU-bound.  Hollowell for LC, Devin Davis for WC, Hartman at Cathedral and Trey Lyles at Tech.  LN, LC, Cathedral, Roncalli, Tech and Warren Central…it’s going to be a lot of fun and should be really heated games.

    A taller version of William Buford……a solid player all around… good shooter.  He will be a good player for us for many years.

    My favorite recruit. Reminds me of Calbert. Hope he be as good as Calbert and if he close its just not gonna be fair to other teams to have to deal with all this talent. Were gonna be LOADED.

    Love this kid..wait till Calbert gets a chance to work with him..and playing point on the press..impressive. Gonna get some big minutes next year.

    Last time I saw a clip of him, he had a bunch of sleeves on his legs and arms.  It looked very cumbersome, and I actually thought it might have been a religious thing.  I am glad that he is just wearing the uniform, because it allows better movement (I have never liked guys wearing T-shirts under their uniforms).  He has a ton of physical gifts, and is just beginning to realize how to utilize them.  He should be back in the top 30 by graduation.

    We are going to be so good next year, but worry we will have chemistry problems. Our best players will not be any of the seniors. Only so many shots in a game.

  • Brklynhoosier

    What ever happened to that one kid everyone said was really talented but he kinda played on autopilot — like he was good but unmotivated — haven’t seen any vid on that kid in like a yr…

  • Kfdchev

    His smooth shooting stroke and ability to drive to the basket and hit the open man…..he reminds me of Calbert. With him and Yogi and the rest of the “Movement” coming in next fall…look out! The Hoosiers will be a load to handle next year! Make room at the top of the Big Ten standings folks…..we are movin’ on up!

    Yes, J-Hollowell can play. Great offensive player but he can also play defense. I think the class coming in will be better than the past few classes because they tend to play smarter, tougher, and go at it defensively that is what IU is lacking right now with the current players(minus- Cody Zeller)
