No but they play good competition all season. Didn't they almost beat Brooks team this season?

Yes.. but I would bet Bloomington South would have beaten CA this past season.

Depending on what South team showed up. The one who lost to Edgewood or the one who went on a winning streak. I officiated them twice but didn't have Culver this year. I want both players but if I have to pick I will take Galloway all-around game over Leal's shooting. I think Galloway is ready to guard at the big ten level right now.

Galloway is one tough defender.  He pretty much shut down Brooks when CMA played LaLu and Jalen Blackmon was a non-factor when CMA played Marion in the tournament until Galloway picked up his 4th foul.  I think Galloway will get more floor burns going after loose balls and he'll get more rebounds.  I really do hope we get both but if not, Galloway is my preference.

I want Leal and Galloway. Don't make me pick between them or I will go with the guy with the state championship
What about three point shooters for next year?

Kyle Hornsby is not walking through that door.

Current players need to get better. No one is out there that I'm aware of that wants to come to IU, that can make an impact.

I think some are a little more worried about the shooting than I am... Green shoots it well, Durham was 35% last year up from 29%, and RP was 31%...  if RP can improve to 34-35% and Durham to 37-38% and assuming Hunter shoots well (not a stretch) I think we will be fine. 

RP was 35 or so while healthy. Would definitely expect around 35-38 from him.

We had alot of games where we went like 2-17. I will admit I am worried.

At home with some suspect calls to keep it close. He missed 2 Ft with 1 sec left that would of won it in regulation. I still would offer both but I would take leal if only 1. That might change tomorrow though. Both are players I like and they seem to play well together

Interview with Leal on Rivals. Maybe I’m reading too much into his comments on Indiana but they don’t sound great;

Indiana: “They have not offered yet. It’s pretty much the same thing. I still talk to them and stay in touch since it’s so close.”

Saw Purdue picked up a 2020 commitment from Jaden Ivey. I’m all in on IU staking Leal and  Galloway. Two kids that want to play for IU. They both seem like players that could come back to haunt IU

I thought for sure that Ivey was ND bound. Doesn't his mom or something work at ND?

And Ivey's dad was a ND football player.  I'd heard from friends up north that he would go to either ND or Butler.   Archie didn't waste his recruiting time as from what I was told Ivey had made it clear he had no interest in us.

I'd be hard pressed to imagine that an offer Monday night won't be forthcoming.  If there is no formal offer made, IMO Leal will be headed elsewhere.  I usually don't disagree with USPS, but I really don't think his performance this weekend is a make or break in terms of an offer.  The staff has had ample opportunity to watch him play and make their assessment of how he does or doesn't fit.
