The 16th annual Metro Indy Basketball Fall League got kicked off the past weekend and it saw a ton of action all day Sunday. Let’s take a look at some news and notes that jumped out to me in week 1.
Quick Player Evaluations:
Roberts might have been the most impressive player I watched all days. Was so explosive and backed that up with many, many dunks. Really starting to believe he is a low-D1 prospect.
As far as best overall prospect in the gym on Sunday, Coleman might have been just that. Defense had no answers from him at times and his outside shot seemed to be connecting well here. His ceiling is so high.
The Cathedral transfer is a player that I have been intrigued by the last few months lately. His high athletic ability has never been a question as more of his reliability from deep and here I thought his outside shot was better. An improved outside game could make him a threat in all three scoring levels.
Nathan Nelson (2023, Wapahani, 6’5, SF) – Nelson is relatively unknown prospect but had an impressing showing in front of me. Loved his motor and the physical style in which he played with. Once he was in the lane, he was making a play at the rim every time.
Young Guys That Showed Out:
Cole Henry (2025, South Ripley, 6’5, PF) – Henry is a tall, strong power forward that people need to know about. Motor is high and he is a beast around the rim. Rebounded well on both ends. Dude just seemed like he wanted to score every time.
Ward is a undersized guard but is an incredible shooter and has plenty of range. Whenever his team needed a bucket, he came up big and worked well to find an open look. Plays hard overall.
Drew Volz (2027, South Ripley, 5’6, PG) – Volz is the very young one of this group only being an 8th grader but he played very well against the 2025s. Was not afraid to scrappy and any little play his team needed, he would go out of his way to do so. Smart player for his age.
Konieczny was the best 2025 prospect in the gym on Sunday. He can score in so many ways and just an incredible smart player. Such a skilled talent.
Vince Reimondo (2025, Southmont, 5’11, SF) – Reimondo is another unknown 2025 that plays his heart out on the floor. Never took any plays off and in one of his games got real hot shooting from the outside. Plays tough defense as well.
Other news and notes:
- The 2025’s are so competitive. I was able to coach a couple of 2025 teams and the 4 games I coached, those guys each played with an edge and wanted to win. Probably was the most competitive group of the day.
- Was able to see 2023 small forward for the first time since he returned to the state from Donda Academy out in California. Still looks to be his talented self and has even added some muscle.
- The team of , , , , , Jr. is just unfair at times. So much talent and they play well. And they still were without and .
- Some notable players that were not present were , , and . Those guys should be playing in the next couple of weeks so that will only add to the talent level that is in the league.
