LaDontae Henton Freshman Season Mixtape

Its been a while since a Friar had a freshman campaign like LaDontae Henton. Averaging 14.3 points per game, a team high 8.6 rebounds per game, and shooting an impressive 40.2% from three, Henton was named to the BE All-Rookie Team.

After cutting up ~25 games into 130 or so Henton highlights, here's the best of Buckets, all tidied up into a three and a half minute package.

Dunn and Ledo Jordan Brand Classic Highlights

Lots more commentary than highlights, rough night for our guys, but I'm certainly not worried.

Jordan Brand Classic

Dunn and Ledo team up for the first time tonight in the Jordan Brand Classic in Chicago. ESPN and ESPN3 have the coverage starting at 7, but it'll be up here, too.

Though I'm excited to see these two on the same team, these games have been painful to watch. If two hours of terrible basketball is too much for you to get through, I'll probably have Dunn and Ledo highlights up sometime Sunday.

Ian Baker Mixtape

Ian Baker of Arlington Country Day is the latest Friar to join the fold. I was fortunate enough to find a few full ACD games from the last two years, and I came away fairly impressed with Baker's game. A few notes:

  • Baker seemed to play more off-guard his Junior year, then took over the point his Senior season. 
  • He was very active defensively, at least when they were playing man, and seemingly always covered the best player on the opposing team. He did a good job shutting down Felix Balamou (who looked spectacular) of Our Savior after he ran off ~12 straight points.
  • 2-6 from the FT line 
  • The final highlight Baker dunks on none other than Chris Obekpa.

If you want to watch the full games, I'd recommend this one from the 2012 SIAA Tourney, or this one from 2011 against Obekpa's Our Savior New American.

Dunn and Ledo HS All-American Games Mix: Part One

Sure, the three C's have become the singular C, but by all accounts these two will still be suiting up in October.

 Here's some highlights of Kris Dunn and Ricky Ledo from both the McDonald's game and All-American Championship, with some of the kind words from each broadcast regarding Cooley and his first recruiting class mixed in.

DraftExpress Kris Dunn Interview

The folks over at DraftExpress.com interviewed Kris Dunn during the McDonald's All-American festivities in Chicago. Seems like a great kid with an even better mindset. Can't wait till October.

All-American Championship

This afternoon Ricardo Ledo is taking part in the All-American Championship in New Orleans. The game can be seen live right here and at ESPN3.com at 3:00PM, and is being rerun on ESPNU at 9PM.

Edit-The above website says the East-West game is first, but ESPN3 says its North vs. South at 3PM, then Ledo's game at 4:30. We'll see.
