PTL Video #1 7/8/2012 HawkeyeDrive.com (via brendanstiles)
JUST ANOTHER SUNDAY OF PTL ACTION. Again, Brendan Stiles has a recap and several videos. Aaron White had another big game and through four games is averaging 30 points and 14 rebounds. White's efforts haven't helped his team's win total as they are 0-4 in league play. Stiles says that Adam Woodbury played his best game of the PTL. He finished yesterday with 16 points. Fellow freshman Mike Gesell has had no trouble scoring points. He poured in 28 yesterday and added 10 assists for his first PTL double-double.
THERE WILL BE NO ZJS IN THE NORTH LIBERTY GYM UPPER BALCONY. Zach Johnson that is. He stopped by the North Liberty gym to take in some PTL action yesterday. North Liberty officials allow only media members on the upper balcony and they take that rule seriously. Johnson was spotted and asked to leave.
STATISTICALLY, AARON WHITE IS THE FRONT-RUNNER FOR PTL MVP. He once was locked in the Iowa practice facility. His game developed his freshman year at Iowa and it's still getting better. White averaged just over 11 points a game last season. He's working extra hard to avoid a sophomore slump. Per White,
"You've seen people in the past kind of slip their sophomore year instead of get better. I want the opposite of that, just keep growing, keep getting better and keep building this program."
THE HAWKEYES HELD THEIR FATHER/SON HOOPS CAMP OVER THE WEEKEND. The Hawkeye players taught basketball skills to fathers and sons at the inaugural camp. The camp was open to kids from kindergarten to sixth grade. There were several pics that popped up on Twitter. Here's one of Aaron White and a lil' Aaron White.
