Vonleh leads USA Red 2014 to adidas Nations championship
2014 Indiana recruiting target Noah Vonleh scored a game-high 25 points and added 16 rebounds to lead USA Red 2014 to an 86-84 overtime win over USA Blue 2013 in the adidas Nations championship.
Vonleh was named a Co-MVP of the championship game along with Emmanuel Mudiay.
Statistically, Vonleh was the top player over the four day event as he averaged 19.3 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.2 steals and 1.3 assists in five games.
The 6-foot-8 power forward, a consensus top five player nationally, told Inside the Hall in July that Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky and Ohio State are the four schools contacting him via phone and text most frequently.
Three other prospects with IU interest — Cliff Alexander, Milik Yarbrough and Theo Pinson — also contributed in USA Red 2014’s win.
Alexander had six points, six rebounds and three blocks, Yarbrough had four points, three rebounds and a steal and Pinson had seven points, three rebounds and an assist.
All three have taken unofficial visits to Bloomington.
In the consolation game, 2014 IU commit Trey Lyles scored seven points and pulled down eight rebounds to help lead USA Blue 2014 to an 82-62 win over Australia.
