    I know Deshaun Thomas is second with most points in Indiana High School history, Does Blackmon have a chance to be #1 ?

    i saw blackmon hartman n davis this weekend…my opinions r blackmon is the real deal he can handle he can penetrate has athletiscm and is a gr8 shooter…has efficent quick release and he shot a real good percentage..i cant wait for him to get to iu…by the way his lil brother is very good also he made the 2 biggest plays of the game….hartman was in foul trouble the whole game but hit two 3s, his shot is very nice i think he will struggle to see the floor after our pre-big ten schedule. i was concerned about devin davis low point totals but he was a beast saturday…he played so hard which alot of kids dont do his team is pretty weak and he was all over challenging shots boarding n scored on some nice moves…his free throws were very inconsistent..hes very athletic had a nasty out of bounds play alley oop where he about ripped the rim off…he can b a very good 4 year player because of his toughness and athletic ability…i like all the guys n am excited bout next year….go iu

    I obviously don’t expect Blackmon to rack up rebounds like that in college, but I think it shows an aggressiveness that not many perimeter players have.

    Well according to the stats provided by maxpreps and based on the accuracy of my math, Blackmon has scored 1,441 points in his career. Damon Bailey scored 3,134 in his career so it would take on heck of a senior season by Blackmon to even get close. All that being said, I’m not totally sure of my math.

    His father was a fantastic player himself when he played at Marion. I saw him get 52 points against the Anderson Indians in the afternoon round in the 1983 state finals. Troy Lewis had 42 for the Indians.

    “Super Bowl? Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

    Je’Ney and Steak ‘n’ Shake! An awesome combination.

  • marcusgresham

    Can I assume he plays more defense than Thomas?

    YIKES!! I just hope he doesn’t go to UK or a B1G like OSU.

    I stumbled across a link of the Sweet 16 game against pUKe last year, and there were many things that jumped out at me about how much better the current IU team is compared to last year’s team. But none more than just how much bigger and stronger every returning player is this year than last year. Some other points that are obvious improvements is the flow of the offense, which I thought was incredible at the end of last season; but truthfully it does not compare to this season in any aspect. Plus on the defensive side of the ball, they are probably 3 steps above where they were last year. Also it is important to realize that this was against a team full of NBA talent, that won the National Championship, and is often today considered a very dominant team compared to the top teams this year. However, I think if this year’s IU team played last year’s UK team, we would handle them easily.
