    USA totally decimated the Dominican Republic 103-39 in its opening AmeriCup game. Grace Berger had 6 pts; 5 reb and 4 assists in the win. USA plays Puerto Rico tomorrow; Venezuela on Monday; Argentina on Tuesday. On Thursday, they'll presumably play a quarterfinal game.

    (2022) - PF Kaleb Banks

    Dan McDonald of Rivals - June 1 marked a big milestone for prospects in the 2022 class as they are finally able to get out and see the schools recruiting them and meet the coaching staff in person after being limited to phone calls, FaceTime and Zoom calls for the past 15 months. Throughout the summer, I’ll be highlighting important visits happening each week. This week, I’m intrigued by Indiana working to get Rivals150 forward Kaleb Banks up for his first official visit. The Georgia native received an offer from the new Hoosiers staff shortly after Mike Woodson hired fellow Georgia native Yasir Rosemond as an assistant coach. Banks holds several offers from ACC and SEC programs as well, but keep an eye on Indiana to pick up some momentum during this visit. Alabama and Georgia Tech, which hosted Banks on Wednesday for an unofficial visit, will also have a shot here. I’m not expecting a commitment any time soon, but it’s a great opportunity for the Hoosiers to gain some serious momentum in his recruitment.

    Dan McDonald of Rivals - (No. 42). At 6-foot-10, the Ohio native uses his big, strong frame as well as any prospect I saw this spring to seal off defenders and score from the block. He’s a good athlete with strong hands and soft touch around the rim. He just completed a visit to Illinois. Cincinnati, Dayton, Indiana, NC State, Ohio State and West Virginia have also been involved here. My prediction is those programs and others make him a priority coming out of July.

    2023 General Recruiting Thread (BBall)

    Rob Cassidy on Xavier Booker from the Pangos camp -- What he did at Pangos: This was my first viewing of Booker, but our Jamie Shaw has long been high on the 2023 prospect. Now I see why. A long, left-handed slasher Booker got buckets in a number of ways this week and showed himself to be a solid rebounder. He’ll need to become a more consistent shooter, but his strength, quickness and ability to finish at the rack are undeniable. Where he might land: Booker holds offers from Kansas State, LSU, TCU and others. He’ll likely see his offer list grow significantly in the month ahead.

Paige Price @paigepriceaus Its a big decision to go home but i have an opportunity to be near family and to go PRO. I will miss all the connections and memories made in my time at IU. No place like home.

    From Inside The Hall: Class of 2023 Evangel Christian School center Cyr Malonga did not make an unofficial visit to Indiana yesterday as planned. Had a conflict with summer league games. He's working on getting that visit rescheduled for early next week.

    (2023) - PG Jeremy Fears

    4- star PG Jeremy Fears attends La Lumiere HS and plays AAU for Bradley Beal Elite on the Nike circuit. 247 Rivals From April 30: Jeremy Fears is currently a 4-star recruit and ranked No. 23 nationally by 247Sports. That service lists him as the No. 7 point guard in the class. Even though he's a '23, he's playing 'up' with the Bradley Beal AAU team on the EYBL circuit so hopefully when the EYBL circuit starts we'll be able to get some good stats on him. https://www.thedailyhoosier.com/iu-basketball-recruiting-class-of-2023-names-to-know-point-guard-jeremy-fears/?fbclid=IwAR3Gj35fLmDmEG52S0zWeNhWqAl6PDWMZ6WHJxahGh8LSXRoYTLfy6WSw8A
