HD Video: IU signees at Night of the Future Stars

NEW ALBANY, Ind. — Indiana signees Hanner Mosquera-Perea, Jeremy Hollowell and Ron Patterson participated in the 2012 Horseshoe Foundation Night of the Future Stars on Thursday evening at New Albany High School.

All three participated in a 2-on-2 contest, 3-point shootout and dunk contest. Each player fell in the opening round of the 2-on-2 contest and did not advance to the finals of the 3-point shootout or dunk contest. The finals for both of those events will be held at halftime of Friday’s Derby Festival Basketball Classic at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Ky.

Inside the Hall has compiled footage of Mosquera-Perea, Hollowell and Patterson from Thursday’s 3-point shootout and dunk contest, which is available in the embedded media player below: (Note: Video can be expanded to full screen by using the arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the player.)

    I like Hollowell’s shot. Can’t wait to see that number 33 in the Cream n Crimson draining threes and driving hard at the rim. 

  • Dmglotz

    Wow. Perea not in finals for dunk contest??

    I didn’t know Hanner could shoot like that. It looked to me like Hanner didn’t really put any effort into that dunk contest either. Hollowell has a nice stroke and can get up higher than I thought to. I think if CWat goes pro that we might not miss him as much as we think although it would definitely be better if he stayed. I hope Patterson’s shot gets a little better too cause it didn’t look to great in the 3 point contest although I know he is a better shooter than that. The dunk contest this year at Hoosier Hysteria should be very exciting though.

    Missed several attempts before he was able to get a few to go down.

    So, Hollowell didn’t advance?  The earlier Tweet was wrong?

    What time is the game tomorrow and does anyone need someone to ride with them down there cause I will ride along, I would love to see these guys play in person before they get to IU.

    It was announced wrong over the PA. Finalists are Chicken Knowles, Mekale McKay, Terry Rozier and Phil Forte.

    Wondering the same thing….

  • jayrig5

    Ah, okay.  Weak.  

  • Stephen Rhodes

    I played with Jeremy at Lawrence central for 4 years and have seen him do some crazy dunks. great shooter too. going to be a great player. also is very unselfish

  • ErniePyle

    He starts with the ball too low. Needs to have a quicker release on the next level when the d closes faster..

  • jennifer1

    Hanners shot does not look too bad. Ron has some pretty good hops, Hollaway just plain looks impressive.

  • jayrig5

    I’m not sure which surprised me more: that Hollowell can dunk like that or that Perea can apparently drain baseline 3′s.  I lean toward the latter.

    Observations from the video:

    + Hanner can shoot which I didn’t know, pretty good actually
    + Ron’s arms were tired, I heard he was visiting a fabric distributor checking out red banner material and was asked to move a couple 300lb rolls to get to the exact red color needed
    + Jeremy is a better shooter than the video shows, I’ve only seen him in the game play, not a contest like this…I’ll take the game play Jeremy.

    When you watch Ron and Jeremy in a game they are all jacked up and springy with their jumping.  They release their shots during game play in a different manner, at the top of their jumps.  The contest here has them just hopping into their shot which is really different for them.  I can see why they didn’t show as well as I would have thought.

    Hanners not as far behind as we all thought. Thad Motta just threw up. Just needs a little coaching up and hell be really good. Have fun tryn to guard him rest of the BIG. Now theres another weapon for yall to worry about! LOL. Were gonna be so tough to beat!!! Dont worry about Ron and Jeremys shot theyll be just fine. Larry Bird had strings of misses in these contests but then hed hit 13 straight and put it away.

    Wow, Hollowell gets up pretty well.

  • SCHoosier

    Have to say I was pleasantly surprised with Perea’s stroke from the 3pt line..Patterson on the other hand look like he needs work on his leg action getting into the shot. Hollowell..as advertised is money.

  • plane1972

    Agreed. He also seems to drift backward instead of going straight up with it. Perhaps this is just his “contest” release. I thought Hanner actually had the best looking form of all three. Did not know he had been working on that aspect of his game.

  • IURob1997

    Really disappointed I couldn’t make it last night and expected to see Hanner in the dunk finals tonight

  • WhatsUpKnight

    dang, next year’s team is going to be athletic!!!! i think this will be a different iu team than any we’ve ever seen (including the grahm/cheaney/reynolds/bailey era). can’t wait to see these guys next fall with a few more pounds of muscle. don’t forget how much cody transformed last summer, and he more than held his own in the B1G.

  • Jack Nolan

    He’s probably tired.  Been a long season.  Hopefully he won’t slump too much next year.

  • Sniderdoug1

    I was there last night…all three looked good.Even a few pUKe fans showed up. Louisville cardinals players…siva , dieng, and russ smith was there to watch louisville signee terry rozier.Cant wait to see hollowell,buss, and perea play tonight…gonna be great!

  • Evansville Hoosier

    I don’t necessarily like Hanner shooting 3′s in games, but if I wanted him to be a good shooter from anywhere, it would DEFINITELY be the baseline. If he can run the baseline, catch it at any spot and have the ability to drive or shoot from that spot, he’ll be a lot harder to guard than I thought.

    Hanner baseline 3′s nothing but Net .. SwissssssssssH ..

    Cannot wait for that sound to echo in Assembly Hall :D Man this kid is something else :)

  • IUfanToby

    I was thinking the same thing.  Starts too low w/ the ball.

  • dtfreed

    one to notice on the 3 shooting HP didn’t need to jump and the other two did. Kinda like Bird use to, imagine HP able to develop that part of his game catch and fling’em in!

  • b_side

    I think you have HP and Hollowell mixed up.  Hanner elevates (he’s first in the video) whereas Jeremy barely gets off the ground.

  • Gerald

    Some guys have a set shot, some have a jump shot. It’s important to do what feels most natural.

  • Evansville Hoosier

    May sound stupid, but because of this video, I altered Hanner’s jump shooting ability on a college basketball video game :-p…. Definitely impressed by his baseline jumper.

    I don”t think any of these guys are as good (unguarded) from 3 as two or three of our current players.  If you can’t hit 50% unguarded what happens when someone is on you?
