ABCD Camp report


Coaches and Miscellaneous news


July 12, 2001
By: BoilerBob


    Pitino - looked old.
    Donovon - Friendly with Pat Knight, was also talking to Charles Smith for a while (Charles was in a suit, not sure what he is doing these days). He seemed to be one of the most visible coaches along with Matt Doherty.
    Dave Odom - He is quite the networker, he was seeking out all of the other coaches to talk to. I sat next to Ellis, the Auburn coach, he did not have much to say but had his camp notebook out and was making a few notes about players.
    Mike Brey - Overheard Mike Brey talking to one of his players, who was working the camp, about leading the team next year (Ryan Humphrey). He said they both walked on eggshells last year and this year they could really step up and lead. He also said that Ivan K. did not listen very well and "did what he had to do". I took that to mean that he transferred. I am not sure why they had to walk on eggshells, I guess because they were new to the program.

    Izzo comments, I referenced most of Izzoís comments in the ABCD players update. These are non-basketball related: Izzo and Feinstein also talked about adoption, as they both adopted babies in the past. This was of particular interest to me as my wife and I are in the process of adopting a little girl from China. I thought it was interesting that they both mentioned having to pull strings (Izzo with the Michigan Governor, Feinstien with a congressman that he used to cover when he was a political reporter) to make the adoption process work. This confirms why my wife and I decided not to adopt domestically, as we do not have the pull in big government to call in a favor like these guys.

    BJ Armstrong was there in a Bulls shirt, is he a scout for the Bulls?

    In case you were wondering, the camp gave out programs to coaches and the media, but not to the general public. I just walked into the media room and started printing out info from one of the computers they had set up for the media to print out camp stats. Thatís where I was able to get the stats I posted last night and the player listings.

    Other Player Info...

    Here are the statistical categories where the Purdue recruits were among the top 20 % of camp attendees (Stats are per game averages):
    Gaines: Blocks (.8), Pts (10.2).
    Buckley: Turnovers (0.3), FT% (.867, 6/7).
    Novak: FT% (.833, 5/6).
    Hunter: Blocks (1.5).
    Augustine: RB (6.7), Turnovers (0.2), Blocks (1.3), FG% (.600, 18/30).

    Only 3 Players attending from Indiana:
    Hunter SR.
    B Cameron (Gary pt guard) SR 2.6 pts 1.4 assists a game.
    Gates? SR 2.4 pts 3 rbs a game.

    Underclassmen from Illinois (There were 9 seniors including Augustine, Gaines & Buckley):
    Valencia: JR 7.8 pts, 4.4 rbs.
    Ellis: SO 7.4 pts, 3.0 rbs.
    J Thomas: SO 4.6 pts, 2.0 rbs.
    I donít know if Purdue is recruiting these guys.

    Two juniors were near the top in ratings for the camp. I donít know where they are from, but watch out for these names:
    Perkins was the overall top rated player at 17.4 pt, 11 rb, 3.4 blks, 61.4 FG%.
    Powe was the third rated player at 17.8 pts, 8.2 rb, 1 block, 60 FG%.
