    High school basketball needs a shot clock.

    No good reason to not have one. Watching Valley pass it around with no intention of trying to score is really annoying.

    Naturally they've been attacking and scoring since I posted this.

    I just caught the last four or five minutes but he looks pretty good! Lightening fast and finishes well. Sounds like he can shoot it fairly well?

    From what I've seen (albeit small sample size) definitely agree he would be a big get for a school like Drake not sure I could see him coming to a B12 school unless he goes juco or transfers in from a smaller D1 school. Would be great if we are able to tap into this state for basketball talent when there is that level of kid.

    Watched him live tonight and was my first time seeing him. TJ Rushing who covers Iowa HS basketball said he is "on the radar of many D1's." Valley didn't have a soul that could stay in front of him when he really wanted to put his foot on the gas. The dude is only a sophomore in HS. He'll mature/get bigger. He plays for Kingdom Hoops who is run by Jake Sullivan for whatever that is worth too. Avg 25 ppg, shoots 33% from 3 and 84% FT shooter. I could see him at a high major in the future Lord willing he gets bigger.

    I've seen the argument made that it's too hard for small schools. I'll throw out the fact that significantly more rural North Dakota has a high school shot clock.

    Been in use up here since the 90's, well before any oil boom. Though I was told the smaller class added it later.

    This is the type of kid I think you have to recruit and maintain contact with throughout his development. If he continues to progress, pull the trigger. There are Iowa kids that can be big impact players at the high major level (duh, if you've been paying attention). We don't want him to leave the state if he is.

    Man last night's game was hot garbage. Valley had North beat in just about every physical trait you can name. Crowley and Curry should have been able to dominate North's smaller interior players, but until late in the game couldn't hit a bucket under the hoop to save their lives. Valley's get up by 2, pass the ball until we're forced to shoot, game plan is an incredibly boring loophole.

    Is basketball in the Metro just really down this year, or is this how terrible basketball is across the state lately?

    Sorry for ranting, but I felt like I was watching a YMCA or rec league game last night.

    There are good reasons. Not basketball reasons, however.

    Basketball in the metro area has been down quite a bit lately. You used to be able to count on a good 2-3 CIML players playing division one basketball. Not so much lately.

    Valley did this same thing last year. It is atrocious basketball.

    Question for those that watched the game: The box score shows that Locure had 7 turnovers, was he forcing it?

    It was sloppy basketball all over the place, both teams were forcing passes inside while the other team was playing some horrid form of flying around flailing defense.

    At the same time, if he's only a soph, he looked really good out there. Definitely needs size, but he's got great speed, a nice shot, great court vision.
