Boiler blurbs from day one of the Spiece Run 'n' Slam tournament in Ft. Wayne
Bryson Scott is not one to back down from anyone. . . "I'm not going to be intimidated by anybody," Scott said.
That was pretty clear Friday night in his opening game of the Hensley Memorial Run 'N Slam in Fort Wayne, in his Spiece Indy Heat's 70-54 win over CDBA.
Scott, a 6-foot-1 point guard recruit who averaged nearly 20 points as a sophomore at Northrop, scored seven of his team's first nine en route to finishing with 20 points, seven rebounds and three assists, with a couple steals . .
In his first AAU game as a Purdue commitment, recently added Boilermaker rising-senior pledge Ronnie Johnson starred in his Eric Gordon Central Stars team's 100-56 win over the Michigan Titans.
Johnson scored 20 points and handed out seven assists.
Big man recruit Jay Simpson's Illinois Wolves 17-and-under team rallied from a double-digit deficit to beat ICP Portland in overtime, 65-54, outscoring its opponent 11-0 in the extra session.
Simpson finished with eight points and five rebounds, but made some of his biggest plays when they mattered most.
Gary Harris . . . after his first game at Spiece, reiterated that his recruitment is open.
The 6-4 blue-chipper and Purdue legacy said the Boilermaker coaching staff continues to recruit him heavily.
