LOUISVILLE, Ky. — In front of a strong showing of Indiana fans at historic Freedom Hall, a trio of IU signees each played their part in helping the White team to a 130-127 win in the 2012 Derby Festival Basketball Classic.
Jeremy Hollowell was one of seven players on the White team in double figures with 11 points. The 6-foot-8 forward shot 4-of-10 from the field and also had three assists and two rebounds. Ron Patterson added eight points and five rebounds and Hanner Mosquera-Perea chipped in seven points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal.
Inside the Hall caught up with all three players and the White team coach — Jason Smith from Brewster Academy — for postgame reaction:
NEW ALBANY, Ind. — Indiana signees Hanner Mosquera-Perea, Jeremy Hollowell and Ron Patterson participated in the 2012 Horseshoe Foundation Night of the Future Stars on Thursday evening at New Albany High School.
All three participated in a 2-on-2 contest, 3-point shootout and dunk contest. Each player fell in the opening round of the 2-on-2 contest and did not advance to the finals of the 3-point shootout or dunk contest. The finals for both of those events will be held at halftime of Friday’s Derby Festival Basketball Classic at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Ky.

A trio of 2012 IU signees — Jeremy Hollowell, Ron Patterson and Hanner Mosquera-Perea — arrived on Wednesday to begin preparation for Friday’s Derby Festival Basketball Classic at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky.
Their first stop was Basketball Academy where they met with the media for interviews and gathered for practice. Inside the Hall was there as all three talked about their future in Bloomington, their expectations for next season and much more:
Jeremy Hollowell led Lawrence Central to the program’s first sectional title since 1998.
And for a time on Saturday morning inside historic Hinkle Fieldhouse, the Mr. Basketball candidate and IU signee looked to be putting his team in position to play for a regional championship.
But Hollowell and the Bears (17-7) couldn’t overcome the hot second half shooting of Pike’s R.J. Hunter, who finished with a game-high 27 points, and fell 74-68 in a Class 4A regional semifinal. Hollowell finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds.
Inside the Hall caught up with Hollowell and Lawrence Central coach J.R. Shelt for postgame reaction:
