  • 08/01/2016 10:18 am in

Indiana sophomore forward Thomas Bryant, along with teammate OG Anunoby, served as a college counselor over the weekend at adidas Nations in Garden Grove, California.

Anunoby didn’t play in the college counselor games, but did participate in some of the drills, per reports.

Bryant played in all five games for “Team Spurs” and here are his stats for all five games, along with cumulative numbers:

The only other Big Ten player to attend adidas Nations as a college counselor was Nebraska’s Tai Webster.

Among the other notable college players: Duke’s Frank Jackson, Louisville’s Deng Adel and Donovan Mitchell, Devonte Graham, Frank Mason and Carlton Bragg of Kansas, Butler’s Kelan Martin and North Carolina’s Justin Jackson.

Bryant, along with Troy Williams and Yogi Ferrell, served as college counselors at adidas Nations in 2015.

The finals of the high school portion of adidas Global Nations airs tonight on ESPNU beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

    OK, so just to have some fun with exhibition games — although apparently pretty darned high-level exhibitions — TB’s shot 50% from the field, 100% from the FT line, and translated out to (roughly) 17 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 blocks in starter’s minutes.

    To those who take everything too seriously, yes, I get it that this is all just make believe. I’ll be enthused by it nonetheless.

    Glad to hear TB is now “built like a house” and “loves contact.” I don’t know too many people that have been hit with an entire house before and been fully functional afterwards.

    We haven’t had a true big like Thomas Bryant for years. Glad we’ll have some fun watching post play this season.

    Not since 2013-2014. So I guess that is awhile.. lol.

  • SilentBob

    These are the kind of reports that make it difficult to contain ones enthusiasm to appropriate levels lol. OG and Thomas are both certainly starting to look the part of professional athletes. If OG continues to build on his surprise touch last season and sustains being a consistent outside threat, then this season could be mighty fun. I mean if that happens, you’re practically talking about combining the best aspects of two of the best players in Creans tenure (Watford and Oladipo) into one super hybrid. At least at the college level.

    Yea I probably went over the appropriate level with that last bit, but no regrets hahaha

    “Thomas got us covered in the personality department lol”

    He is a true triple threat!

    Vonleh and Bryant are different types. Vonleh was not very comfortable playing with back against the basket, at least not when he was at IU.

  • Bill Graham

    The thing that intrigues me the most is TB went from a terrible game 3 (29% shooting and 4 turnovers) to a stellar game 4 with 22 points. Speaks to his character and how competitive he is being able to bounce back after a terrible game.

  • I am Baby Cakes

    No but he was a heck of a lot better at rebounding and defense. But that speaks to just how talented Vonleh was.

    Pretty impressive stats @ 18.8 minutes per game.

    They had one of the high school games from Adidas Nations on last night. I was actually very impressed with the play. I thought the organization (not skill level) compared very favorable to the NBA summer league. I think it is great that we had two guys getting high level coaching and talking to potential recruits.
