Hollowell decision won’t determine Harris’ future

His friend Jeremy Hollowell’s college recruitment appears to be headed toward its end, but Gary Harris says he’s still focused on “which school’s going to be the best place for me.”

Speaking to Inside the Hall on Monday night, the Hamilton Southeastern junior guard said he’s been impressed with the future being built in Bloomington, and he considers IU one of his “heavy hitters” right now. Still, the 6-foot-4 guard said he’s taking his time, an approach he’s been consistent in taking throughout his recruitment.

“They’re gonna have a pretty good team here pretty soon,” Harris said of Indiana. “Of course I’m gonna look at it.”

Hamilton Southeastern’s season ended with a 83-72 loss to North Central in the regional final at Hinkle Fieldhouse. The Royals finished 20-4 on the season, and their only other losses to teams in Indiana were a two-point defeat against North Central in December, and a four-point loss at home to Pike on Feb. 15.

Hollowell decision coming on Thursday at 3:30

It appears that Jeremy Hollowell has reached a decision on where he’ll play college basketball.

All that’s left now is the announcement.

And that will happen Thursday at 3:30 PM ET at Lawrence Central, according to our friend Kyle Neddenriep of The Indianapolis Star.

Hollowell, rated the No. 38 player nationally in the 2012 class by ESPN.com, will choose between Cincinnati, Indiana, Ohio State and Purdue.

If Hollowell picks the Hoosiers, he would join Hanner Perea, Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell, Peter Jurkin and Ron Patterson as the fifth member of IU’s 2012 class.

That’s A Wrap: Bobby Capobianco

Welcome to “That’s A Wrap,” our attempt to make some sense of the 2010-11 season. Sit back. Relax. Grab some popcorn. Get your read on. Today: Bobby Capobianco.

Final Stats (26 games): 1.0 ppg, 1.2 rpg, 47.4% FG, 50.0% FT in 6.3 minutes per game

On a team desperately seeking interior help, Bobby Capobianco’s 2010-2011 performance did little to inspire that he’ll ever become more than a depth player at the high-major level.

Tom Crean’s first recruit of the 2009 class saw his minutes drop from 11.9 per game as a freshman to just 6.3 during his sophomore campaign and he failed to get off the bench in six of IU’s contests.

And when he did enter the fray, it seemed a whistle followed almost immediately. Consider this statistic: Capobianco logged more fouls (44) than total points (26). Capobianco’s fouls adjusted for 40 minutes per game? 10.7, the worst average on an IU roster that fouled more than any BCS school.

The regression was disappointing because at times during his first season in Bloomington, Capobianco looked like a player that possessed the potential to develop into a solid backup. There was a sense that he’d made some strides from the beginning to the end of his first season and was perhaps ready to take that next step into a 15-to-20 minute player.

And when Guy-Marc Michel’s ruling from the NCAA came down, it was assumed that Capobianco would be one of the players who would stand to benefit on the depth chart.

That’s a Wrap: Maurice Creek

Welcome to “That’s A Wrap,” our attempt to make some sense of the 2010-11 season. Sit back. Relax. Grab some popcorn. Get your read on. Today: Maurice Creek.

Final Stats (18 games): 8.3 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 1.2 apg, 38.9% FG, 80.8% FT in 28.2 minutes per game

The  player about which almost everyone has an opinion is the same one most Indiana fans would probably rather not talk about.

Maurice Creek was, at one time, the next great Indiana basketball player. What unfortunately remains to be seen is if he’ll ever match that potential again.

By now, I’m assuming I don’t need to tell you about his freshman scoring average, or his 31 points against Kentucky in 2009. On potential ability alone, Creek will always remain a prodigious talent.

A few things ought be noted about Creek’s newest knee injury setback:

  • It wasn’t the same knee.
  • It wasn’t a full fracture, according to Tom Crean, but rather a stress fracture that simply required too much time off for Creek to finish out what was already a pretty old season.
  • Assuming this injury is not so severe as the last, rehabilitation might not be as arduous a process, but obviously that’s not something we would say with too much certainty.
  • This is a bit less than objective, but Creek hasn’t seemed to be cutting the forlorn figure of a player for whom things just won’t ever work out. Actually sort of the opposite. That’s really, really, ridiculously opinionated and shouldn’t be lent full force of merit, but it’s an observation nonetheless.
