Jericole Hellems says...."where all my offers?" Hits a 2nd triple. Has 10 early. Active on both ends..@JericoleHellems 20 to 16 Brad Beal.


Have to agree, had 29 points this afternoon, lighting it up tonight. Does have an offer from Indiana, other 3 are mid-major. Just added a dunk to his total tonight.

And Liddell gets another impressive throwdown.
The gym is packed btw -- announcer says they aren't letting anybody else in. Lots of talent on display -- K is here to go along with most of those mentioned in the previous game. Think he's looking at Garland, who is playing tonight after sitting out today's game.
Beal up 27-18 after being down 13-5 early. Liddell, offensive rebound and put back -- 29-18.

Jericole Hellems is en fuego Going to guess he has some offers in the mail right now.


Kid just had another monster dunk to end the half. I'm guessing there are going to be a lot of offers going out after tonight. BBE leads 42-22 at halftime. Best team I've seen down here and now with Cal Supreme losing twice, MOKAN losing twice and Howard Pulley losing tonight - they may end up leaving pool play as the only undefeated team and the Peach Jam favorite. They've already beaten Cole Anthony's PSA Cardinals.

Brad Sturdy‏ @Sturdy32 4m4 minutes ago
Hellems has 20. Brad Beal up by 20. At the half. Kid has 69 points and 25 rebounds in 2 and 1/2 games.

3 straight dunks for Okoro. One on a left handed pass from Hellems from half court. This dude is like the Peach Jam LeBron.

2018 forward Jericole Hellems is having the game of his life at Peach Jam. Scored it any way you want it. Made strides since the spring.


Just playing out of his mind. Okoro and Liddell have both played great, but Hellems is having some kind of out of body experience I think.

Tim Finke not starting for Meanstreets. First time that's happened all spring. (Could be injured but he's dressed and sitting next to Slaughter on the bench.)
Derek Piper‏ @DPiperScout 5m5 minutes ago
And for the nightcap.. #Illini HC Brad Underwood & Chin Coleman are back over at Peach Jam to see Tim Finke.

Right guys, he averages 6/5 for the EYBL season. Has one good game against a team in the Invitational (read - teams not good enough for Peach Jam) and you start cutting THT.

Finke 6/4. Not even looking for his shot. Only basket was a put back on an Anderson airball. Have to feel for the kid. He's had a brutal Peach Jam.

And Jericole Hellems is wasting no time.. Bangs in a corner three just over a minute into the game.

I mean part of the deal is they hype their players and help get them offers. All I'm saying is that it's not all sour grapes, it's part of their job.

They've been doing stuff like this constantly since Talen left. I realize their job is to hype their players and I have no problem with that at all. I actually like the Irvins as a rule. But if you've read their twitter feed since THT left, they've been digging at him non stop. Doubt it bothers him and at first I just found it funny. But after a while, just stop, Mike Irvin. You look petty.

Looked at the fire feed and didn't see anything about him. What tweets are you referring to?

This class is stacked at PG and SF which are two of our biggest needs and one of the best reasons we will have a shot at some top talent. C is going to be a much harder get and it's obvious why we seem to be trying to get on some of the more "diamond in the rough" type players.
