    This is from the Kentucky Sports Report:

    Scottie Lewis is going to be a PROBLEM for the SEC next year


    If you only watched the Hoops Summit game itself, it would have been easy to miss the play of Florida commit Scottie Lewis. He finished with a pedestrian nine points in 16 minutes of play, with four fouls. Still, don’t let the stat line fool you: He was arguably the most impressive player behind the scenes at the Hoops Summit this week and earned rave reviews from the NBA scouts who were in Portland taking in practice.

    What stood out about Lewis is that – in a setting where guys sometimes take it easy on defense – Lewis played about as aggressive and tough on that end of the court as I’ve seen for a high school kid. In Thursday’s practice game against the local team, Lewis picked up his man a full 94-feet and made life miserable for whoever was handling the ball. You could tell that at times, the point guard just wanted to get rid of the rock, rather than deal with Lewis. To his credit, Lewis was also about as vocal of a player on defense as I’ve seen at the high school level, and you can tell he is uber-competitive. There were times where he’d get frustrated with a missed assignment or if he picked up a cheap foul.

    The point I’m trying to make is that the SEC better watch out. This kid is going to be giving opposing point guards nightmares all night long.

    This is why Nembhard should return to play with Lewis. Will be an exciting team.

    Man, what he needs is a coach who likes his guys playing hard nosed defense. You know where we could find one of those?

    Testosterone + alcohol = trouble looking for a place to happen.

    On the other hand, it would be a true statement postable in any thread.

    Yes, his offense looks great but his defense is at an elite level. I noticed him forcing guys into traveling there but it went uncalled. Like the one guy said, it looks like guys he's defending can't wait to get rid of the ball.

    The only thing I worry about with Scottie is how many cheap fouls he’s going to pick up and then how long will he actually be on the court if he has to go to the bench with foul trouble.

    If he played for South Carolina he’d get 3-4 fouls all year.
