    Blackford was down 1, then Luke stole an inbounds pass, and was fouled, hits 2 FTs, so Blackford is leading, then MG throws a full court pass and in the melee the refs call a foul on Blackford, MG kid hits 3 FT's and MG wins. Here is the game video, watch from the 90 minute mark on. Even these announcers talk about how awful the refs were

    So.......having seen him play do you feel this kid is D-1 talent?

    he's a sophomore, 6-1, I totally think he will excel at the D1 level, his passing skills are just like Bird's were, the kid sees the entire floor, his teammates always had to be aware because they never knew when he was gonna pass to them

    if he grows a couple more inches, then watch out.

    I'd highly recommend going to see him play sometime if you have the chance, I plan to go to a few more games this season yet, and with 2.5 more years of high school to play there's plenty of opportunities to see him play. He's a real competitor.

    Honestly, we could use Luke Brown right now. Seriously.

    I watched the game live on utube. The announcers are just a couple of homer good ol boys. I enjoyed thier take as they personally know the players. It did look like Luke was held and bumped, pushed with no calls. I had to double check the 36 points as while watching i didnt think he that many. He had hit 48 free throws in row then missed two in a row and the shock and disbelief by the announces was funny. I also noticed how he moved without the ball. Luke never sat in a corner waiting always moving. He will break Damion Bailey's record. Watch him play and then laugh at me.

    Exactly, he’s good and would love to have him someday. But, he’s a kid and we’re playing against grown ass men. I think that’s why Neese struggles at times, he still thinks he’s playing against high school kids. Although, he was much bettter today handling the ball and playing defense. He will be ok.

    It should be amended to ANY kid we recruit.

    Only a handful of kids are truly ready to play nationally and most of them are the 4- and 5-star kids and even a handful of those kids end up being below average as true freshman because they're usually turnover machines and defensive liabilities.

    I'll post the link to tonight's game when it's on, but man, wait till you all see this shot Luke Brown hit at the end of the 3rd quarter, Sportscenter top 10 worthy! He was falling out of bounds and just heaved the ball towards the basket and it went in! Amazing stuff!

    It'll be on the Blackford Sports Network youtube channel
