2013 Warren Central forward and IU signee Devin Davis Jr. scored a game-high 28 points and pulled down nine rebounds in a 57-54 overtime win at Fishers on Thursday night. (Video of his performance is available in the premium forum.)
The win moved the Warriors, coached by former IU standout Greg Graham, to 3-0 on the season.
Aftward, Davis talked to Inside the Hall about his developing midrange game, his thoughts on the Mr. Basketball race and more:
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Led by 17 points from 2012 Indianapolis Star Indiana Mr. Basketball Gary Harris, the Indiana All-Stars completed a sweep of the Kentucky All-Stars, 83-73, on Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Kentucky All-Stars held a 41-40 lead at halftime, and led early in the second half, but a 30-5 second half run pushed the Indiana All-Stars to their ninth straight win in the series.
IU signee Ron Patterson was one of three Indiana All-Stars in double figures with 14 points in 20 minutes. The Broad Ripple product also had four rebounds.
Ferrell, the runner-up in Mr. Basketball voting, had six points, four assists, two steals and two rebounds in 23 minutes and Hollowell chipped in nine points, nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals in 16 minutes.

After leading Guerin Catholic to a Class 3A state title last month, Aaron Brennan is garnering interest from Butler, Indiana, Indiana State, Iowa, Michigan, Notre Dame and Xavier.
The 6-foot-6 sophomore is playing alongside Wapahani guard Grant Evans with Fieldhouse Elite this spring and summer and the duo were a big reason that program won the 16 & under division at last weekend’s IndyBall.com Shootout.
Inside the Hall has compiled a short collection of video clips of Brennan from that event in the embedded media player below (Jersey No. 40):
One class of 2015 prospect speaking highly of the Hoosiers this spring is Ft. Wayne Carroll guard Chandler White.
The 6-foot-2 sophomore-to-be averaged close to 16 points per game in his first high school season and Inside the Hall has compiled a short collection of video clips from last weekend’s IndyBall.com Shootout of the talented prospect (Jersey No. 42):
The upcoming spring evaluation period should lend additional insight into the prospects the Indiana staff is interested in, but one 2015 point guard with established Hoosier interest is East Chicago Central’s Hyron Edwards.
Edwards, who is playing for Mark Adams and Indiana Elite Team Indiana this spring and summer, was among the visitors last October at Hoosier Hysteria and has also visited Michigan, Northwestern and Purdue.
The 5-foot-10 sophomore-to-be averaged 14 points and eight assists per game in his first high school season and talked to Inside the Hall about his recruitment thus far at the IndyBall.com Shootout in Indianapolis:
How did your freshman season at East Chicago Central go?
“It went well, we started off strong. With me at point guard, I had to distribute the ball, to my teammates and to all the shooters, but it went well.
What was the experience like playing big varsity minutes as a freshman?
“The experience was tremendous, because I had to work every game and every practice because everyone was bigger than me and stronger than me, so I just hit the weights everyday. It was tremendous, though. I like playing and the competition.”
What was the toughest matchup of the high school season for you?
“The toughest one was Lake Central and Glenn Robinson (knocked out East Chicago Central in sectional).”
What schools have been recruiting you?
“Indiana, Purdue, Michigan, Xavier and Northwestern.”
Inside the Hall kicked off our spring AAU coverage over the weekend at the IndyBall.com Shootout in Indianapolis. Just one IU commitment — Devin Davis — was present, but several 2014 and 2015 prospects (and even a 2016 prospect) the Hoosiers will be tracking in the coming years highlight our player evaluations:
Class of 2013
Devin Davis, SF/PF, Eric Gordon All-Stars: The Indiana commitment put on the type of performance we’ve come to expect from him after two years of following him on the circuit. Davis attacked opponents off the bounce, was outstanding on the offensive glass and played solid defensive in the paint as well as on the perimeter. He didn’t shoot the ball much, but did display a reliable stroke from the charity stripe.
Class of 2014
Aaron Brennan, SF/PF, Fieldhouse Elite: The 6-foot-6 Brennan scored 25 points and led his team to a victory over the 2014 Eric Gordon All-Stars when ITH was in attendance. He showed great savvy in the post with a variety of moves and ways to score from mid-range and in. Brennan also has a reliable mid-range jumper when facing the basket. Two areas where the sophomore forward could improve are his ball-handling and defense.
Bryant McIntosh, PG/SG, 2014 Eric Gordon All-Stars: McIntosh looks to be much improved since we last watched him in July of 2011. The 6-foot-3 guard has a great stroke from deep, can score off the bounce using his craftiness, possesses great basketball IQ and makes heady plays as a passer and distributor. McIntosh has improved his athleticism and even threw down a dunk in a Saturday morning game. He could continue to improve on his strength and quickness.
Sean Sellers, SF, 2014 Eric Gordon All-Stars: Sellers had an impressive weekend while displaying his solid all-around game. He knocked down jumpers from deep, scored against opponents off the dribble, ran the break well, scored using the offensive glass and showed reliability at the free throw line. Like his teammate Bryant McIntosh, Sellers has worked and improve on his athleticism. Selleres also looked to be playing stronger than he did the last time we saw him, but could still stand to improve his strength and add bulk to his frame.
Jacob Johnson, SF, 2014 Eric Gordon All-Stars: Johnson, a 6-foot-6 wing from Mooresville, could be poised for a breakout AAU campaign. He didn’t list Indiana as one of the schools recruiting him, but his play will certainly warrant the attention of college coaches this spring and summer. Johnson has great size, strength and athleticism and plays extremely hard on both ends of the floor. He runs the floor like a gazelle and crashes the boards with purpose. Johnson has a smooth shot from deep, but didn’t shoot much this weekend, appearing somewhat passive at times. He’ll definitely be a player to keep close tabs on as the AAU season progresses.
