The Lawrence Central High School (Indianapolis, IN) varsity boys basketball squad begins its 2014/2015 season on November 25 with an away contest against Brownsburg (IN). Leading the Bears is University of Virginia-bound combo guard Kyle Guy, who two years ago outperformed his own expectations as a freshman.

“I came in thinking I was gonna dress a couple of varsity games but would be primarily JV,” Guy said. “Well my coach started me and I played well, had a good season, and then got my first offer.”

Guy averaged 13.5 points per game his freshman season and over 14 points per contest as a sophomore. Indiana State was the first school to offer and Indiana followed suit in July of 2013. Guy entered the 2014 AAU season with three scholarship offers (Purdue had offered as well), but outstanding play on the Adidas Grassroots AAU circuit resulted in national attention, including an offer from the University of Virginia.

Indiana Elite coach Mark Adams was impressed with Guy’s play in 2013, so he was pleased when the 6’2” guard decided to play for his team in 2014. Adams’ 2014 squad went 17-4 and captured the Adidas Super 64 championship.

“I’ve always liked his game,” Adams said of Guy, who was averaging 14.3 points per game in 16 games for the Indiana Elite before the Adidas Super 64. Guy made 49-percent of his field goals, including 44.6-percent of his 3-pointers, and also had 60 rebounds, 26 assists, 13 turnovers and 9 steals this AAU season.

“Kyle has an extremely high basketball IQ,” Adams continued.
