2014 Indiana commit Trey Lyles will play on national television tonight in Long Beach, California as his USA Blue 2014 team takes on Australia for third place at adidas Nations.

The game will air live at 8 p.m. eastern on the CBS Sports Network.

USA Blue 2014 fell 92-62 last night to USA Blue 2013, which will play USA Red 2014 for the Nations championship.

Lyles had 10 points, nine rebounds and two blocks in the loss.

The adidas Nations championship will feature several Indiana targets on the USA Red 2014 team including Cliff Alexander, Noah Vonleh, Milik Yarbrough and Theo Pinson.

In a 67-62 win over Australia last night, Vonleh had 14 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, three steals and a block.

Indiana junior forward Will Sheehey also participated in adidas Nations as a college counselor and was one of the standouts for Team Kenny.

In an 86-81 win last night over a team coached by Kelvin Sampson, Sheehey scored a team-high 15 points and pulled down five rebounds.

And in a Sunday morning scrimmage against Team Maz featuring Kentucky forward Kyle Wiltjer and center Willie Cauley, Sheehey scored seven points, had three rebounds and dished out three assists in a 44-42 win.

    I heard Sheehey was benching 275 lbs this summer… Really increased his strength… Lookout !

    It sounds like Sheehey was one of the premier players at this event. That’s good to hear. It sounds like Will, Vic, Remy, Peter, and Cody are all improving at impressive rates, and if anyone else is following suit, we’ll be scary next year. I mean, Sheehey, at best our 4th option on offense, is one of the better scorers in college. Think about that.

    I also heard that Will bowls overhand, his hands feel like rich brown sued, and disaster fell in love with him because he’s always flirting with it. Stay thirsty Will, banner #6 is soon to come my friend.

    Anyone else think that Will Sheehey enjoyed beating Kelvin Sampon’s squad last night? I sure enjoyed reading about it.

    “I don’t always dunk, but when I do, age old stereotypes about white people not jumping crumble.”

  • When you consider that the final score was 44-42 7 points is actually pretty good.

    One of the recruit rating services in attendence tweeted a really glowing review of Lyles ability and potential..was highlited on the ITH twitter stuff a couple of days ago.

    I believe that was only a half of game. They stopped the game at halftime to do drills or something else with the time.

    Indeed. This is about as good as it gets considering the source too:

    RT @DraftExpress You won’t find a smarter, more polished 16-year old than Trey Lyles. 6-10, simply does everything offensively. What a talent

    Noah Vonley get’s my vote , he is a beast , C Alexander would be nice too probally stay longer as well . But Vonley looked good in this .
