Some of the top local teams from EYBL, 3SSB, UAA, and many more will all be participating which will make for matchups we don’t normally see throughout the spring/summer.’s Kyler Staley will be in Fort Wayne, IN checking out the Indiana targets all day Saturday.

Some key EYBL prospects include: 2024s Flory Bidunga (Indiana Elite), Travis Perry (Indiana Elite), Jonathan Powell (Midwest Basketball Club), and 2025s Jalen Haralson (Indy Heat) and  Trent Sisley (Indy Heat).

Games for Run N Slam began last night and will go through Sunday.

Below are live updates of some of the key games and notable Indiana basketball targets.


8:00 am – Indiana Elite 2024 (Flory Bidunga, Travis Perry) vs MTXE Premier 

Starting off the day watching Indiana targets Flory Bidunga and Travis Perry. This duo is easily one of the best 1-2 punch duos I have seen this year.

Both playing extremely hard to start off with. Bidunga’s motor is super high already this morning and he is trying to block nearly every shot. Perry is working hard on the defensive end.

MTXE playing somewhat close with Indiana Elite. Indiana Elite leads 37-28 at the half.

Bidunga starts off the half with a mean one-handed slam. A few plays later, Perry knocks down an open corner three. Both guys are in rhythm.

Indiana Elite starting to stretch the lead out. Up 53-39 with 10:21 left.

9:15 am – 17u Indy Heat (Trent Sisley, Jalen Haralson) vs Wildcat Select 2024 

Jalen Haralson is not here today due to his brother’s graduation.

Sisley is coming off a 19 point game last night. Easily one of his better performances this AAU season.

Sisley busted his elbow early on but came back in the game. He had a really good first half after that. Was running the floor extremely well and his first few points came off of dunks. He also nailed a three as well.

At the half, Indy Heat leads 43-36.

Sisley opened the half with a bucket around the rim and three-pointer. Also hit a smooth turnaround jumper.

This is easily the best Sisley has looked this spring.

Indy Heat leads 71-63 with 4:40 left.

Wildcat Select made a major comeback and now leads 77-75 with 30.9 sec left. Indy Heat ball.

We have overtime! Tied at 77!

Indy Heat would onto win 83-80. Trent Sisley finished with 16 points.

11:45 am – Midwest Basketball Club 2024 (Jonathan Powell) vs Kyle Guy Elite 17U 

Powell comes off the bench for Midwest Basketball Club but was the first one off.

Little quiet to start off this half but has hit a smooth corner three and had a one-handed slam. Not a player that is going to rush his shit much and elects to play within himself.

Midwest leads 35-27 at the half.

Powell checked in at 10:00 mark in the second half. Drained a three and cleaned up a missed layup since he came back in.

Midwest would go onto win by 20 points this forcing the game to end at the 2 min mark.

Powell had an unofficial 15 points.

8:00 am – Indiana Elite 2024 (Flory Bidunga, Travis Perry) vs Midwest Renegade

Pretty standard stuff from Bidunga and Perry here. Shot making is good by both guys.

Bidunga did have an incredible blocked shot that brought everyone to their feet. Perry has been really good shooting off the ball.

Indiana Elite won 80-52. Bidunga finished with 21 points while Perry added 13 points.

2:15 pm – 17u Indy Heat (Trent Sisley, Jalen Haralson) vs NOVA Village 

Trent Sisley playing really well in this game. Hit a three and has been real aggressive attacking the basket. Didn’t play a ton in the first half due to Indy Heat dominating.

Indy Heat is up 43-24 at the half.

Second half is as pretty much the same dominance from Trent Sisley and Indy Heat. Watching Sisley this week, it looked like he was able to open up his game a little bit more than what he has been able to the last couple of weeks.

Sisley ended with 13 points in Indy Heat’s win.

4:45 pm – Midwest Basketball Club 2024 (Jonathan Powell) vs Kyle Guy Elite 17U

Last game of the day for me. Powell once again is coming off the bench. He does well in that role.

Pretty much the exact same first half as the last game for Powell. 5 points and has a dunk and a three.

Midwest is up 48-38 at the half.

Powell would go onto finish with 10 points.
