Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim reaches out to Tyus Battle following ban — Cuse Clicks

Boeheim called Gary Battle, the father of 2016 Gill St. Bernard’s combo guard Tyus Battle, to tell him that Syracuse “was pulling themselves out of the postseason this year.” The ban will only impact the current players and won’t impact future recruits. “He asked me how Ty was doing and said Ty is his top recruit in 2016,” Gary Battle told “We are not that concerned.”

Jamal Murray of Orangeville Prep (Ontario) and Isaac Humphries of La Lumiere (IN) are among the young international stars who will headline the first-ever Basketball without Borders (BWB) Global Camp. The camp will be held February 13-15 at Baruch College in Manhattan as part of NBA All-Star 2015 in New York City, and Nike will be the official partner. NBA scouts can attend the event.

QB Dwayne Haskins Jr., Bullis, 6-2, 185 Pick a college, any college. Haskins has likely garnered an offer from that school. Following an impressive showing on the combine circuit, Haskins’s stock rose considerably during his junior season. With Devonte Williams moving on to play at Indiana, expect the second-team All-Met QB to get more chances to display his passing skills for the defending IAC champions.

One of the most intriguing 2017 prospects I’ve seen this high school season is Mohamed Bamba. Bamba, who stands 6-foot-10 and possesses a 7-foot-3 wingspan, has all the tools you look for in a young post player. He’s long, mobile, athletic, has good post awareness and even has good form on his mid-range jump shot, which he shoots with confidence.

Huntington Prep big man Thomas Bryant is one of the best available big men left in the national 2015 class. Currently ranked 22nd overall in the ESPN 100, Bryant is eventually expected to choose from Kentucky, Syracuse, Indiana, and Missouri, while Kansas is also reportedly making a late push to get involved with the six-foot-ten big man.
