    I think you see them at AAU events because they can see lots of basketball talent at one time at tournaments and see that talent against other talent, compared to going to a high school game and seeing one athlete of interest, sometimes against inferior competition.

    That's a tidy summary of my opinion, though I think many here carry a higher evaluation!

    Now for my parting comment on where he'll end up, citing my inside information. I have lived on the east side of Iowa City for 20+ years and frequent Heyn's Ice Cream. On a recent visit, one of the servers was wearing a 2017 Oskaloosa Track & Field sweatshirt, so I asked her where XF would play his college basketball. She said she personally knows the family and guarantees he will attend EIU. Will Heyn's Ice Cream girl prove more prescient than CyTwins?

    You think most high school coaches are bad. Ryan isn't in the best spot with Xavier's dad on staff.

    Yeah I think most high school coaches are in three categories.

    1. Not many coaches in that small of a town and he is the best option and is good with the kids. I think he falls under this category. The Osky coach.

    2. Good Coach that is a players coach or a hot head. Still knows the game really well.

    3. Coach who thinks he is the man because he is the head coach. Cares more about himself than what is actually happening. Usually old school type guy who has not kept up with the times.

    If she worked at the same 31 Flavors where Ferris passed out, I might believe her.

    I asked some Ames wrestlers once where Tamin was going to play ball they all were very sure it is going to be ISU.

    Well to be fair, SEIOWA CLONE said Osky is closer to Ames than ISU -- which is true.

    Think there is a secret underground Russian facility beneath Heyn's Ice Cream shop?

    The connection to AAU basketball and recruiting is much deeper and slimier than that.

    If Robin worked at a nearby ice cream shop I'd be joining in full bore in the "Help! I'm fat" weight loss thread. ;)

    Did you just quote wrestlers about something that is happening with basketball?

    I've played pick up basketball with wrestlers. Kinda like trying to clean a spider monkey's cage that's in heat.

    Wrestlers by nature look down their noses at basketball players, which is interesting as they are usually shorter. Playing basketball with wrestlers is a good way to get hurt, especially as they don't appreciate pain. My roomy in college was a wrestler. I Always gave him crap that he liked rolling around in someone else's sweat, wearing a singlet, grabbing other guys junk and having them grab his, ...but for some reason he didn't think that was an accurate description of his sport!
