John Calipari bounced around Las Vegas last night to watch at least two of his top targets, at two separate events. First, we know he was at the Fab 48 Tip Off Challenge at Bishop Gorman High School, where he saw Skal Labissiere put on a show. Josh Pastner, who has seen every one of Labissiere’s games this July, was also in attendance.
Then he made his way over to the Adidas Super64 at the Cashman Center, about a 10-minute drive north from Bishop Gorman. That is where Jaylen Brown scored 11 points and grabbed eight rebounds in a win in front of Cal, Roy Williams and several others. Afterward, Brown told a UCLA blog there is “maybe a little truth” to a rumor that the Bruins are his leader.
Meanwhile, John Robic stopped in the Wednesday’s action at the AAU Nationals in Louisville. Robes is back again this morning to watch Antonio Blakeney.
