(Not all statistics are official)


In-state Class of 2025 stars Trent Sisley and Jalen Haralson go head-to-head. They are teammates on the AAU spring circuit with the Indy Heat.

Haralson is such a dynamic player. Although he is just entering his second season, he looks and plays like a senior. He’s 6-foot-6 or taller, has a solid build, and plays under control at elite speed. Just ten minutes into the game (with a clock running), he already had 4 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists.

Sisley with nine points at halftime. He hit a 3-pointer a good foot behind the college line. Haralson with 4 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds. Fishers win 43-19 at the break.

Haralson had a block, got the rebound, brought it in for the fast break and got an assist in a streak. He definitely looks like one of the top 50 talents – at least. He is at 7 assists at the start of the second half.

Haralson and Sisley sometimes protect themselves. Haralson is very good at moving laterally. It’s impressive that Sisley, who is a power forward at this point, even tries to keep Haralson on the perimeter. He holds up sometimes.

Haralson didn’t play much in the second half as Fishers blasted Heritage Hills and both teams have two games left today. He finished with 6 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 blocks and a few turnovers.

Sisley had 16 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist and a few turnovers.


Fun match involving 2023 IU pledge Gabe Cupps and teammate and IU target Jonathan Powell against Lyon County (Ky.) guard and IU prospect Travis Perry.

Perry is the real deal with reach well beyond the arc. He made a few threes and had 10 points, 3 steals and 2 assists at halftime. Cupps made a few threes and had 6 points and 5 rebounds at halftime.

Perry has a bunch of steals in this game. He plays for Indiana Elite on the Adidas 3SSB Tour and holds his ground there defensively as well. For more information on Perry, GO HERE.

Centerville throws double teams and everything swings on Perry and that kinda bugs him. He has a few turnovers.

Cupps missed five free throws in the last minute, which kept Centerville from coming back. They lost by four. Powell and Cupps played in separate rotations, so neither played significant minutes.

Perry finished the game with 21 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 4 steals and 3 turnovers.

Cupps had 9 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, 1 block and 3 turnovers.

Powell had 2 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 block and 1 turnover.


Tyler McKinley, who we featured yesterday, is the headliner of this one. Both Sam Orme and Carmel’s Garwey Dual are on the radar.

Orme struggled in the first half from three but was a factor in other ways. He had four points, 4 rebounds and 4 blocks.

McKinley was silent. He had 2 points in the first half with 2 rebounds and 2 assists.

McKinley might dominate on the low block but Walnut Hills has him mostly on the perimeter. He finished with 8 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks and 3 turnovers.

Orme had 4 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals, 5 blocks and 3 turnovers.


Cupps with 7 first points. Seems to have shaken off whatever was bothering him on the foul line in the previous game.

Both Powell and Cupps have very impressive reverse layers in traffic, with Powell making a mistake in the process.

At halftime, Cupps totaled 9 points, 2 assists and 1 interception. Powell has 2 points and 2 rebounds. Cupps has scored at all three levels of this game with some contested finishes at the rim.

Powell looked better in this game. He is new to the team after being transferred in the spring. Sounds like someone trying to find their way through a new system. He had a 40-point game in April on the Adidas circuit. Here’s more context.

Centerville played Cupps and Powell together this game and they helped build an 11-point margin in the second half. It is clear that they will play together when it counts this winter. Centerville has qualified for the state championship game each of the past two years.

Centerville was playing two five-man shifts, so not a ton of game time with a clock ticking.

Cupps finished with 9 points, 2 steals, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 turnovers. Powell had 10 points, 3 rebounds and 1 turnover.


Second look at 6-foot-9 forward Tyler McKinley. He’s just not the same player I saw last month with All Ohio Red on the Nike EYBL. He absolutely dominated a few games with them at Westfield. McKinley looked tired all day.

At halftime McKinley had 4 points and 2 rebounds.

Ben Davis’ Zane Doughty is getting average interest. The 6-foot-8 Class of 2023 forward has 6 points and 2 rebounds on the break. He did a good job walling McKinley on the low block.

Mark Zackery, a playmaker for Ben Davis in 2025, has game-changing speed and could find himself on the major radar.

McKinley finished with 10 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 turnover. Doughty had 8 points, 5 rebounds, 1 block, 1 turnover.


A match involving Cupps and Haralson is underway.

It’s Powell’s best game so far. I had him for three 3-pointers in the first half and he was also very good in defense.
