2012 Hall Of Fame Classic: Bryson Scott Open Thread

Incoming 2013 Purdue guard Bryson Scott is playing in this year's Hall of Fame Classic in New Castle, and you can watch live here.

Today is the day of the most prestigious in-season tournament for high school basketball in the state of Indiana. The Hall of Fame Classic often invites four teams with the top senior players in the state to take part in a tournament between Christmas and New Year's. Last year Ronnie Johnson and teammate Patrick Ingram played against Gary Harris, Zak Irvin, and D.J. Balentine while Kellen Dunham was playing with the fourth team.

Purdue has another player in this year's tournament as Bryson Scott and Ft. Wayne Northrop face Indianapolis Tech with Trey Lyles and Jeremie Tyler. The first semifinal is Indianapolis Cathedral facing Jay County. Jay County features Keagan Comer, Brock McFarland, and Scott Schwieterman as solid players. Cathedral has IU commit Collin Hartman, IPFW commit Mo Evans, and 2015 Purdue target Jalen Coleman. The 2013 guys can be found here, while the 2014 guys are here. Purdue reportedly has interest in 2014 Tech player Mike Jones. Tech's 2014 class is actually damn good with five players drawing major college interest. Here is the afternoon schedule:

Class 4A No. 10 Cathedral (3-2) vs. Class 4A No. 14 Jay County (6-0) 12:30pm

Class 4A No. 8 Ft. Wayne Northrop (8-1) vs. Class 4A No. 5 Indianapolis Tech (6-1) 2:15pm

The recent snowstorm pushed the girls tournament to today as well, and that started at 9am, so times can shift today based on how long those go. If Northrop wins they will play in the boys championship at approximately 9:15pm. If they lose they will play in the consolation game at 7:30pm.

This is a great tournament, but don't be surprised if fatigue is a factor. Northrop has played in the Summit Conference Tournament the last two days, winning both to move to 8-1. They will play against Saturday night in the championship of that tourney, making for five games in four days.

The good news is that we can have an Open Thread right here. WHMB TV is broadcasting all games live on the web, and here is the embedded player for the Tech-Northrop game:
