The first in a series of two exhibition games between the Indiana All-Stars and the Junior All-Stars lived up to the hype last night at the Hatchet House in Washington, Indiana.
After trailing by eight with just under six minutes to play, the Cody Zeller-led group of seniors stormed back with a pair of 3-pointers from Nic Moore in the game’s final two minutes, which helped them prevail 117-113. Inside the Hall takes a closer look at last night’s contest in our exhibition notebook:
— Farewell, Cody: The Washington fans witnessed the last competitive game by a Zeller in the Hatchet House and showed their appreciation pre-game with a standing ovation to honor Indiana’s Mr. Basketball. Zeller put on a show in his final game in front of his hometown fans as he poured in game highs of 26 points and 19 rebounds. The undersized juniors had no answer down low and Zeller took advantage all evening with easy layups and dunks. While work in the weight room awaits him upon his arrival in Bloomington, Zeller looks poised to make an immediate impact in the Big Ten.
— Hollowell shines: Jeremy Hollowell made a case that he should have been among the core six juniors with 15 points, five rebounds and four assists in 18 minutes. And those numbers were despite being forced to guard Zeller and Branden Dawson for a majority of the evening. The Lawrence Central wing said afterward that he’s feeling no lingering affects from the knee and wrist injuries sustained at April’s Double Pump tournament in Denver.
Hamilton Southeastern’s Gary Harris (22 points on 8-of-15 shooting, 4-of-4 free throws, seven rebounds, seven steals, one block and one assist) and Lawrence Central’s Jeremy Hollowell (15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, 1-of-3 free throws, five rebounds, four assists and one block) met with the media following the Junior All-Stars 117-113 loss to the Indiana All-Stars last night at the Hatchet House in Washington.
Watch and listen to what the IU target and IU commit had to say in high-definition quality video below:
Cody Zeller’s final game in the Hatchet House was a memorable one.
After receiving a pregame standing ovation, Indiana’s Mr. Basketball scored a game-high 26 points and pulled down a game-high 19 rebounds as the Indiana All-Stars held off the Junior All-Stars, 117-113.
Zeller shot 11-of-16 from the field, 4-of-6 from the foul line and also had three blocks.
The Juniors, led by 25 points from Kokomo’s D.J. Balentine and 22 points from Hamilton Southeastern’s Gary Harris, looked to be in position for the upset as they built a 106-98 lead with 5:45 remaining.
But the All-Stars tied the game at 111 at the 1:45 mark and Warsaw’s Nic Moore knocked down a pair of 3-pointers in the final minute.
Hamilton Heights guard and IU signee Austin Etherington finished with eight points on 3-of-7 shooting and added two assists and a rebound in 16 minutes.
For the Juniors, Lawrence Central wing Jeremy Hollowell scored 15 points, pulled down five rebounds and dished out four assists. Broad Ripple’s Ron Patterson added nine points, three rebounds and two assists and Park Tudor’s Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell had four points and two assists.
The All-Stars, minus Branden Dawson and Marquis Teague, will scrimmage the six core juniors and the six north juniors on Wednesday night in Kokomo.
