HD Video: Luke Fischer adidas Spring Classic highlights

It was a strong weekend in Fishers for 2013 Indiana commit Luke Fischer as the Wisconsin Swing won the 17-and-under Super Group championship. Fischer had 17 points, 11 rebounds and six blocks in the title game.

We’ve compiled over three minutes of high definition quality video of Fischer, the No. 97 player nationally according to Scout.com, from the event, which is available in the embedded media player below:

    Great pick up for our Hoosiers.  Excellent skill set.  Biggest negative: almost zero explosiveness.  Barely seems to get off the ground.  Great highlights against people that he skies over, but will need to work on his jumping ability to excel at the next level.  No doubt that IU’s strength/conditioning staff will develop his talent leaps and bounds!

  • Brklynhoosier

    Love a kid who knows his own game.  Now just needs to work on strength (in the arms and in the legs) — would love to see him strong enough to catch the ball with his back to the basket and just back his man down.

  • SirEric

    This is impressive video. For the most part, Luke does a really good job of keeping the ball high and trying to score quickly when he gets it. Using his strengths. I also had though he played a bit below the rim, but he had some authoritative slams in that clip. I am a fan.

    After the first 2 clips anyone who has ever played the post is thinking “no left, no left, no left…he can only turn over 1 shoulder with his back to the basket” and then BANG beautiful left jump hook. Then another spin to the left about 20 seconds later!

    Chuck Barkley said it last night, all you need is 2 post moves, a go-to and a counter. This kid has them both and he’s 17. Even Cody doesn’t have a good counter move in the post (although he doesn’t really need one). Great compilation.

    Would like to see a better developed hook shot, especially if he’s a little earthbound.  But that’s to come – he looks great.

    For a rising high school senior there’s a lot to like. That said..he can, will and needs to get a LOT stronger around the bucket. Like the quick feet and ability to run the floor..plus he can hit the FT’s…welcome on board Luke!

    I agree on lack of explosiveness. Alot of those will get put back in face in the BIG but loved the way he used the glass.John Wooden would love this kid. Its truly a lost art and shows hes fundamentally sound. Hes gonna get better and better this next year and when he gets to Bloomington they will work onhis strength. Hell probably be all-BIG before hes done at IU.I beleve him and Davis alone make 2013 a solid class. Really getting excited about the 2013ers.

  • MillaRed

    It’s hard to train for the needed explosiveness when you are still growing. He’s grown two inches in the last year. He’s right on track IMO. And very well could end up being a 7-footer.

    We are critiquing him as we should but think about how he is moving around at 6’11″. It’s pretty impressive. Has great hands and footwork.

  • jcopey

    Great hands and fundamentals.  He will make an excellent 4-year player at IU.  I wouldn’t call Wisonsin’s Berggren the most explosive player either, but he’s incredibly effective and efficient.  His strength / explosiveness will improve and he’ll be a major contributor over the years hopefully!

    Is it just me or does this kid look like a tattoo-less Derek Elston?

  • fortwaynehoosier

    this kid has gotten a TON better since last summer.. very excited that he’ll be in bloomington

  • Evansville Hoosier

    I have to agree on the explosiveness. I saw several plays where Cody would have dunked it easily. Hopefully a little leaping ability and aggressiveness will come with age.

  • hgdownunder

     My thoughts exactly.

    Couldnt agree more and really thats the most important thing. First few videos I saw of him I was not impressed at all. I thought we should have waited to offer. The master saw diferently though and thats what hes paid the big bucks for. Im so excited to have Luke and Devin becoming HOOSIERS!!! I beleive they are very underrated. As long as theyre progressing thats all we can ask.

  • Kenneth234

    Thank you Milla for mentioning how difficult it is for a guy who was already 6’9″ and has hit another growth spurt to train explosiveness.  That being said, there are not that many guys that are that size that are incredibly explosive leaping anyway.  I thought that in regards to being a low post player, Fischer may be a little more skilled then Zeller was as a Senior to be in H.S., at least from a post playing perspective.  I also would say that Zeller is an above the rim interior player as a freshman either. 

    Personally, I think if Zeller sticks around for his Junior season, and Fischer gets to play along with him, Jurkin, and Perea, he will certainly put IU as a lock as by far the best inside team in the country.

    Needs to gain strength?  

    Seems fine, for where he is in his basketball life.

    You guys did watch the clip right?  He pretty much got fouled every time he touched the ball and still either scored or went to the line.

    I’d say he is closer to Zeller than Elston,  but somewhere in between will be just fine.

    Hate to go here copey but Berggren actually has a freakish vertical for his size. Incredibly athletic. He just doesn’t use it very well in-game.

  • B_ball_baller12

    Strength and a left hand should be his focus till he arrives. That’ll determine if he’s a starter or a roll player

  • Geoff_85

    I think he wasn’t even really trying to throw the ball down. He could have dunked a lot more than he did here. Did you see the couple of dunks he had at the end of the clip? They looked pretty much effortless.

    No doubt about it Indiana will have the best frontcourt if everyone on the frontcourt next season stays to play with Fischer in ’13.

  • Geoff_85

    I agree on the strength. I think some people are critiquing him as if he is coming to Indiana this season. I think some others are just looking at his girth. I think for his size he has good strength, and no doubt about it he was fouled quite a bit. It looks like he has a good stroke at the FT line and for those who haven’t seen Peter Jurkin, he has a GREAT FT stroke. Indiana will have one of the best frontcourts in the country if Zeller stays, and the best FT shooting frontcourt in the country. To be able to leave these guys in at the end of games will be huge in close games, especially when you consider Jurkin’s defensive presence. It will also help Coach Crean save timeouts……and we know how he loves to save his timeouts. ;)

    Coulda signed with the Buckeyes—they’d get him inked up

  • Jakecunningham

    best player in that highlight wasn’t fisher tho. Koenig looked incredible #24.

    I totally agree, I played tennis with him in gym and he was one of the best players in the class. He has got tremendous body control for someone that tall.
