Cooper Neese, a rising junior at Cloverdale High School (Indiana), has picked up a scholarship offer from the University of Evansville men’s basketball program, according to multiple Twitter reports.
Regarded as a shooter, the 6-foot-3, 160-pound Neese averaged 17.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.7 steals per game as a sophomore. He knocked down 68 of 192 3-point attempts last season (35 percent).
According to Neese’s Verbal Commits page, Evansville is his first scholarship offer.
About the only recent highlight film I could find of Neese features him pump-faking an opponent out of his shoes, going around the sprawling defender and sinking a jump shot.
Bad defense or the best pump fake of all-time? You decide.
