Week 1 is underway and we have got a big slate of high school hoops going on this week in Indiana. This season is going to be full of uncertainty, but let us dive on in and take a look at some highlights of Wednesday’s night of hoops.
Silver Creek came into the season opener against Columbus East without Purdue commit,. However, made up for his absence in a huge way. Jacobi led the way for the Dragons with 44 points and 18 rebounds in the contest. The Toledo commit has had big games in the past including a 36 point performance in the Forum Tipoff Classic, but the 44 points and 18 boards set career highs for Jacobi in both categories. It is safe to say that Silver Creek will be fine no matter how long Kaufman is out if Jacobi continues to play at this level.
