Iowa Basketball: PTL Lifts Lid

The first PTL action of the summer took place on Tuesday night in North Liberty. Current, new and former Hawkeyes were all in action.

Here is a rundown of the statistical performances based off twitter posts. Brendan Stiles (@thebstiles) always does a very good job with the PTL and has full recaps with several videos on his site, late each game night.

Mike Gesell: 27 points, six rebounds and five assists
Adam Woodbury: 8 Rebounds, three assists and 2 points
Jarrod Uthoff: 13 points, 13 rebounds
Zach McCabe: 29 points (7-10 from three) and 10 rebounds
Melsahn Basabe: 18 points, 7 rebounds
Gabe Olaseni: 9 points, 6 rebounds
Devyn Marble: 15 points (played just one half)
Aaron White: 40 points, 16 rebounds
Eric May: 21 points
Anthony Clemmons: 6 points

Kyle Meyer: Tom Kakert of Hawkeye report tweeted that he has sore knees and didn’t play much
Patrick Ingram: DNP, in Indiana this summer
Josh Oglesby: DNP, had class

Kakert commented in a tweet that Fran McCaffery’s ‘hype on Olaseni’ seemed warranted but that he wanted to see him play against Cole and Woodbury this summer for more evaluation. Mike Hlas commented that Olaseni had around three blocks in a two-minute spurt.

By all accounts of those in attendance, Mike Gesell is as advertised. Some may look into Woodbury’s stat line a bit too much, but take into account he was going up against a professional in Jarryd Cole.

PACKED HOUSE: By all accounts I read, it was standing room only at the PTL on the opening night. The excitement is back. Rob Howe also tweeted that Hawkeye recruiting target Seth Bonifas was at the game. Get more familiar with Bonifas by reading this story. He is a 6-9 center from Dubuque. Iowa offered him back in September when he was 14 and entering his sophomore season. He’s 15 now and will be a part of the 2014 recruiting class. Iowa was his first offer and remains his only high major offer.

    I wonder if Bonifas ends up playing the 4 in college instead of the 5.

    • Really? Why do you say?
