Regarded as one of the best shooters in class of 2012, Pendleton Heights guard Kellen Dunham averaged 22.5 points in his sophomore campaign and led the Arabians to an 18-6 record. Inside the Hall caught up with the 6-5 junior-to-be, who is suiting up for Indiana Elite One this spring and summer, for a Q & A:

On his sophomore season at Pendleton Heights:

“I had a lot of fun this season. I think we could have been a little bit more successful in the sectional, we got to the championship game and lost to Muncie Central. I really feel like we all improved as players and our defense got a lot better.”

On the opening weekend of AAU at the IndyBall.com Shootout:

“There was some pretty good competition at IndyBall and hopefully there will be some good competition this weekend. We’re headed to Iowa.”

On his game extending beyond just being known as a shooter:

“I feel like I’m trying to set people up on the offensive end. And also working on my defense. It’s getting a little better. I’m not just a spot up shooter. I can take people off the dribble now, finish at the rim and pull up.”

On the progression of improving his jump shot:

“When I was little, I shot pretty well, but I definitely worked on my shot for a long time. I spent a lot of hours working on it.”

On his visits to Bloomington this past season and what he likes about the program:

“I went and saw the Purdue and Minnesota games at Assembly Hall and they’re showing some pretty good interest. I really like Coach Crean. He’s really fun to talk to, very knowledgeable about the game. Coach Buckley also is a very nice guy. I like the program.”

On the other schools showing interest:

“Xavier, Purdue, Butler, Michigan and Ball State.”
