Brownsburg has three freshmen on the varsity this year. Their would-be best player Torrey Nibbs was cut from the team because he didn't attend June activities and didn't shoot during football season. Fishers has a lot of height on their roster. Three guys over 6'7" play major minutes for them. On paper, it looked like Fishers would win easily but I wanted to check in on some players for both teams.
The first half was very sloppy with both teams turning the ball over. The game struggled to get into a rhythm because of the turnovers. Jaylon Brown had some nice explosive moves and finishes. Brown looks like he is going to be a nice guard down the road. Ryan Rebholz was also active in the first half for Fishers. He didn't shoot it as well as he normally does (only 3-9 in the half). His strength and ball handling must improve to play at the next level. Fishers had a 25-14 lead at half time.
The second half was when Fishers started to play much better. J.P. Pena started to knock down the shots that he was missing in the first half. Pena is a nice little guard. Probably a small college prospect because he isn't the quickest or most athletic guard, but he is very skilled. Pena's 2012 classmate Joe Retic also made some nice plays. He didn't dominate one area of the game, but he did a little bit of everything.
Fishers held on for a 54-40 victory. Junior Mycah Whetstone, 6'2" guard, lead Brownsburg in scoring with 14 points.
