    Re: Lone Peaks repeats /Justin Hamilton

    He sound like a real defensive stopper in the low post, something we've been lacking. Kelvin Cato maybe?

    Kelvin Cato...I doubt it.

    Jarad Homan...let's hope in a couple years.

    He needs to hit the weight room for sure.

    As I recall, he has football genes so he should have success hitting the weight room and getting results.

    I'm most encouraged by his work ethic. He continues to strive to get better. Almost every article I've read states something in regards to his work ethic and belief in getting better everyday.

    Re: Lone Peaks repeats /Justin Hamilton

    Has anyone seen him play?

    I certainly haven't, but based purely on the fact that he's fairly skinny, a relative newcomer to basketball, and probably not ready to play against Big 12 post players, it seems he would be an ideal candidate for redshirting.

    The problem is, of course, that we are really going to be hurting for post play next year. Is this a situation where we wait and see how he plays in summer leagues and fall practice before a decision is made, or is it fairly obvious that he'll be redshirting right away? And does the fact that we've been losing a lot of Big 12 games over the last two years change the approach, and force him to play his freshman year when he might not be ready?

    There are lots of ways to play basketball and win. You certainly dont need a big post player to be a sucessful team.. (Marquette, Tenn).

    Re: Lone Peaks repeats /Justin Hamilton

    I have watched him play three games and also have a friend who has coached against him. From what I have seen and heard I am guessing the absolute 'best case' scenario is that he develops into an Erek Hansen type.

    You didn't see E. Hansen at Kirkwood then. Hamilton is already that good and Hansen was a soph in college at the time.

    Re: Lone Peaks repeats /Justin Hamilton

    I've seen him play. He's got a good feel for the game on the defensive end. Always seems to be in good position, and is very unselfish with the ball which is a good thing since the other Lone Peak players are ball hogs. Has really long arms for 6-11, but could use a redshirt year to add some bulk.

    Lets hope not. He will have a little better college coach that Hansen did.

    Here are a couple of links to the Deseret News with Justin Hamilton content.

    Deseret Morning News | 5A boys basketball championship: Lone Peak repeats as champion, defeats Bingham

    By James Edward
    Deseret Morning News
    March 2, 2008

    OGDEN The debate about Lone Peak's place in high school basketball state history can officially begin.

    A day after its thrilling double-overtime win over undefeated Davis, the Knights followed it up with a convincing 67-53 victory over Bingham Saturday at the Dee Events Center putting the finishing touches on back-to-back 5A state championships. . . .

    Lone Peak shot 50 percent from the field and enjoyed a 36-18 scoring advantage in the paint. That difference demonstrates just how much Lone Peak 6-foot-11 center Justin Hamilton has improved this year. He finished the game with 10 points, six rebounds and a school record 10 blocked shots.

    He was instrumental in holding Bingham leading scorer Ben Clifford scoreless until the third quarter and limiting him to just seven points for the game.

    "Anyone who would've seen Justin the first game of the year against Provo, and then that game right there wouldn't have known it was the same guy," said (LP coach Quincy) Lewis. "He was sensational; they really had a hard time getting anything going in the paint." . . .


    Top performer: Justin Hamilton finished with 10 points and a school-record 10 blocked shots in a dominant defensive game.

    Key stat: Lone Peak outscored Bingham 36-18 in the paint.

    Knights' 6-11 center improving rapidly

    By Jim Rayburn

    It's confession time.

    I admit, I'm one of those people who thought Lone Peak center Justin Hamilton was always going to be just a good warm-up act. . . .

    To Hamilton, and his family, I apologize. I really misjudged this teen's heart, desire and potential. I confess now, that he's probably the most-improved prep basketball player that I have ever seen.

    When I watched him against Timpanogos a few weeks back, I was stunned at how good a player he has become. . . .

    Rest of Rayburn's column is here:

    Re: Lone Peaks repeats /Justin Hamilton

    Wow! That second article is something else. Like this quote:
    ---
    "He's gone from being potentially a good player for Iowa State to a player, that if he continues to work the way he has, to being an impact player for Iowa State," Lewis said.
    ---

    If the guy writing that story is right, forget the redshirt. He could be doing a lot for us next year off the bench. I'm suddenly very excited.
