I once met this really hot Cuban girl and my friends told me I had no shot and not to waste my time... That she would want someone taller and richer, that I was a Prodestant and her Catholic etc.. We have been married now for 24 yrs.This is all entertaining, but if he’s that good, do we really have a shot? Sounds like a high major kid, no?
considering he was being double and triple teamed at times he still scored 31 points, when he's out front with the ball he finds his spot to drive and score or get fouled. He's so quick that he easily drives past whoever is trying to guard him when they're man to manSo.....for anyone there watching this kid....how did he look?
I actually like reading about this kid, I just hate knowing that we have no shot at him. The stories of his performances are great.I realize some people may be frustrated on posts about Luke. Then please ignore them. My point is this kid is the best high school basketball player I have ever seen. He will break Damon's record. Check the team stats for Blackford on Max preps and you will see he is doing it all alone. There are only two others guys on the team that are helping (kind of). They are just a bunch of short farm boys. Its Hoosier high school basketball in its old school glory. Small broke town with very little and a basketball hoop.
Last night the height of Franklin 6-8, 6-6 and 6-5 held them to a one shot and done in the 2nd half. Luke's FG% would easily be 10 points higher if he didn't have to pick up so much slack. I urge you to find time to see him play.
I watched that game too, didn't go to the game this weekend, might go to the Jan 31st or Feb 5th games. Luke had 33 tonight I think, Stroebel had 15 or so, they were about the only ones who scored for Blackford as they only had 55 points, and amazingly only scored FOUR points in the 4th quarter.Just saw this kid as Blackford beat Jay Co. Crazy quick feet, even quicker hands, and the heart of a cat burglar. He is the real deal. See him if you get the
opportunity. You will enjoy it.
The thing about Doyel, or anyone, saying he could play college ball right now is that they're only speaking offensively. I highly doubt he could hang, defensively, with D1 players (as a sophomore in high school).couple more good articles about Luke, good reads if you have time. And as Doyle mentions in the Indy Star, he could play college ball now.
correct, he'd not be able to defend at the D1 level yet for sure. He's got 2 more years to improve everythingThe thing about Doyel, or anyone, saying he could play college ball right now is that they're only speaking offensively.

With that said, would love to see him in Sycamore blue. But doesn't it seem that he's gonna be a high major recruit?
