Video: 2017 guard Chaundee Brown Peach Jam highlights

  • 07/18/2016 9:17 am in

The Academy School (Fla.) and Nike South Beach guard Chaundee Brown is the newest member of the 2017 class to receive a scholarship offer from Indiana. The Hoosiers offered the 6-foot-4 scorer over the weekend. Ranked the No. 44 player nationally according to the 247Composite, Brown averaged 22 points, six rebounds and 1.4 assists earlier this month in the Nike EYBL Finals at the Peach Jam.

With the help of Krossover, we recently broke down some film of Brown, who shot 46.2 percent on 3s at the Peach Jam, to provide Indiana fans with a feel for his game and style of play.

    Looks like Crystal Ball has him in a 50/50 split between Florida and Kansas. Wonder if we’re too late to the party to make an impact? It would probably really help our chances if we stomped Kansas in the season opener!

    Pros:

    Great shooter – 41% from 3pt in 12 games in the EYBL
    – 84% free throw shooter
    – 52% from the field
    Great Rebounder – 6 rebounds avg in 12 EYBL games
    Good Length – 6’4 but lanky looking

    Cons:

    Poor ball distributor – less than 2 assists avg EYBL play (he’d prob be a 2 guard at IU)
    Not a very active defender – .9 steals per game
    Doesn’t contest shots well – less than .1 block per game (you’d expect a 6’4 guard to at least be closer to .5)
    *jbj avg’d .4 blks per game and 1.2 stls pg this year…so that puts this kids defense into perspective.

    Overall I’m impressed with his potential (especially as a shooting guard) but as a PG or combo guard he needs work on D and passing the ball…

    – This class is tricky because every PG we’ve offered is missing something.
    Coleman is a terrible 3pt shooter 18% in EYBL play.
    Waters is below 6ft and there are defensive uncertainties with bigger guards
    And this kid appears to play lackluster defense

    * not trying to be cynical but compared to guys like Curtis Jones, Robert Johnson, JBJ, and Yogi none of these guys seem to be that caliber of a player.

    Kansas has offered several top tier guards like Young, Diallo, Green, and Trent Jr….Self’s strategy is usually to pursue to the top tier kids hard but stay in touch with the 30-60 ranked cats just in case…although he usually gets the top kids so its irrelevant…but limited or partial contact usually doesn’t pan out in the long run…I’d say Florida has a good chance since he’s from there….Florida has a couple things we don’t….like coeds in bikinis in January…

  • SilentBob

    No idea how this kid defends, but disruption isn’t always the best metric for defense. Stats would suggest James Harden is a pretty good defender, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist a meager one, but it’s the complete opposite.

  • Bill Graham

    True and the EYBL isn’t exactly pro-defense…but still I don’t want another JBJ (defensively) where we are just biting our nails every time his man gets the ball.

  • HuntinHoosier86

    You got a point there, Bill! LOL! However, if we’re going that route, you can’t beat sharing a blanket in front of a fire in January with a smokin’ hot Indiana girl! Best looking girls in the country!

    I agree with SilentBob. Stephen Curry lead the NBA in steals this year, but Thompson was the one matched up the opposition’s best guard. That was on purpose. A higher steals statistic doesn’t always mean better defense. It could mean the player likes to gamble on passes. Similarly, a large portion of blocks during a game are from the weak side defense rotating over to help. Hard to determine a player’s defensive effectiveness using statistics.

    I like this kid; BIG size, good shooter, good handles. Not certain I agree Scruggs isn’t missing something. Is he as good a shooter as this kid? Alex seemed to suggest otherwise in a recent post.

  • Bill Graham

    Well you got an upvote from me on that one. My wife and I met at IU and lets just say I got the better end of that deal…(most days)!

  • SilentBob

    Absolutely. Was just browsing scout earlier today and they have defensive “presence” listed as a weakness for Coleman as well. Hopefully its correctable with drills, effort, and some time with Lyonel, but he will never be a beefy guard. You’d like to think the length and speed he has would allow him to be a natural bawl hawk defensively.
