Sheehey, Lyles participating in adidas Nations Global 2012

Indiana junior forward Will Sheehey and 2014 commit Trey Lyles are in Orange County this weekend participating in adidas Nations Global 2012, which is the final event of the summer for adidas.

Sheehey is one of 30 college counselors and is joined by Deshaun Thomas of Ohio State as the only two representatives from the Big Ten. Among the other notable college counselors: Wayne Blackshear, Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva of Louisville and Duke’s Mason Plumlee.

There will be two scrimmages each day featuring the counselors according to the schedule released.

Lyles is one of the top players on the USA 2014 Navy roster, which also features Chicago Whitney Young big man Jahlil Okafor. Paul Turner, a 2014 guard from St. Joseph’s, has received some interest from Indiana and is also on the 2014 Navy roster.

2014 prospects Cliff Alexander, Noah Vonleh and Theo Pinson will be teammates on the USA 2014 Red roster.

Other prospects who have received interest from Indiana who will participate include Milik Yarbrough (USA 2014 Red) and Jordan Mathews (USA 2013 Blue).

Also included in the adidas Nations release is the participation of NBA players (Arron Afflalo, Darren Collison, Nolan Smith) and former Indiana coach and Houston Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson, who will assist with “professional on-court coaching and training, as well as off-court instruction on nutrition, leadership, discipline, philanthropy and global interactions.”

The championship, which will be played at Long Beach City College on Monday, Aug. 6, will be broadcast live at 8PM ET on the CBS Sports Network.

The complete schedule is available here.

    Kelvin should be great with the philanthropy aspect, I mean he gave us Hoosier fans the biggest blessing in disguise when he messed up…Opened the door for Crean, the right man for the job

    Seriously? Kelvin Samson giving advice of ANY kind to high school and college players=bad idea.

  • MillaRed

    So…….Sampson won’t be discussing the importance of going to class????

    Good God, how can anyone as corrupt as Kelvin Sampson, with a lifetime ban from college basketball by the NCAA, be teaching leadership and discipline?!? I wouldn’t want him anywhere near Trey Lyles or other future Hoosier players.

    I am officially not buying any more Addias. Addias should be more responsible as to who they allow to represent them at camps. I would like to know who at Addias is responsible for allowing Sampson near impressionable young men. To allow him to speak on any subject to and audience of high school or college kids is absurd. I used to highly support Addias because they usually do a great job of picking people to represent their brand. I am officially switching if they choose people like Sampson to represent their camps and brand.

    Hey he has experience with the whole unlimited calls and texts thing. I’m sure he can give advice about how to ignore a coach.

    It wasn’t the excessive texting (now legal) that hurt IU as much as Sampson’s lack of dicipline for his team. Most of the players were either flunking classes or doing drugs or both. Had that not been going on, Crean would have inherited a team with some pretty skilled players. When Crean took the job he thought he had Armon Basset, Jordan Crawford, JaMarcus Ellis, Eli Holman, and DeAndre Thomas as returning players. Incoming freshman were to include Devin Ebanks and Tu Halloway. Crean would have won many more than 6 games his first year had these players not turned out to be a bunch of loosers. Texting was never the main issue, it was his recruiting of poor character basketball players. I just wish we would have hired Crean when we fired Davis and all of this would never have happened. I said the day Sampson was hired that it was a huge mistake (so did most of the prominent basketball alumini). The idiot president didn’t care about their imput.

    Check http://www.adidasnations.com. Should have the details. I believe it is open.

    Well I guess you won’t be buying any Adidas Indiana gear, or supporting the team & university that’s wearing the logo you suddenly despise. Time to move on. Indiana has Tom Crean and IU is going in the right direction.

    Forget about “Zero Degrees” Kelvin–Congratulations to Will!

  • hoosierdaddy3

    I’ve never seen any Indiana Hoosier Addias gear.

  • hoosierdaddy3

    I know it is only a message board, but it is pretty comical to see someone with so many grammatical errors call the president of Indiana University an idiot. Crean didn’t think he was going to have all of those guys, he knew what he was getting himself into (hence the 10 year contract) and has said as much on numerous occasions.

  • iuball11

    Indiana University basketball is sponsored but Adidas

  • hoosierdaddy3

    I know, he spelled Adidas “Addias” 3 times, just messing around.

  • Kelin Blab

    I know there is a lot of Cody and VO maybe going pro next year, but Will Sheehey is absolutely a pro prospect as well. Strong defender, good shooter, and athlete. Would not shock me if he had a great year this year he test the waters.

  • iuball11

    Oh..my bad lol

  • hoosierdaddy3

    No worries my man, I will be rocking my Indiana Hoosier National Championship shirt made by Adidas in no time!

    I watched an interview of Crean that confirms what Derbus is saying. Crean said he learned of many of the academic/drug related problems on day one of the job. He DID believe that he would keep several of those players. His contract was extended to 10 years after the magnitude of the situation was fully realized.
