Last night at the KY/IN All Star game Quentin Snider showed why Louisville fans are extremely excited about seeing the local product in the KFC Yum Center next season. Snider finished the night with 37 points (6th highest in history of the game), 5 assist, and 7 rebounds in a 104-94 loss to Indiana. The Kentucky Mr. Basketball was 6 of 11 from behind the 3 point line, a stat that should have all UofL fans smiling big today.
While this was a KY vs Indiana All Star game all eyes were on the PG match up between Snider and Mcdonalds All American James Blackmon. Blackmon finished the night with 41 points but both players made it clear they would find their way on the floor for the Cards and the Hoosiers next season. The second of the two games will be held tonight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
James Blackmon Jr has been a very sought after player since de committing from Indiana in the recent weeks. Blackmon, a 4 Star PG, has already started to narrow his list down and set some unofficial and official visits. According to this article from UMHoops.com one of those official visits will be to Louisville on September 20th. If the date September 20th sounds familiar to you it may be because just yesterday we told you that 4* PF Jaylen Johnson would be on campus that same weekend. Johnson and Blackmon Jr are two of the Cards top prospects in this 2014 class and with these two already on board for the 20th it is shaping up to be a HUGE weekend for Cardinal Basketball recruiting.
