Yesterday was the first game for the Louisville Magic in the Adidas Invitational, and Rick Pitino was in attendance. Why? Two of his 2014 commits, JaQuan Lyle and Quentin Snider, were both on the Magic, and put on quite the performance.
The two players combined to score a total of 42 points out of the Magic’s 86 points. Snider finished the game with 24 points and 7 assists, while Lyle finished with 18 points. The two guards played so well in front of their future coach, and impressed everyone in attendance.
The future that both of these players have is unimaginable. Not just at Louisville, but in the NBA. Lyle for sure is going to be a star in the pros, no doubt about it. The two players are already playing so well, and they will no doubt improve by leaps and bounds this summer and throughout the next high school basketball season.
Snider has definitely improved. Everyone there noticed how Snider had definitely gotten more muscular, thus making him more strong and physical, as well as willing to drive the lane.
Snider’s father told me Quentin has spent the summer improving his core, it showed. He was physical, aggressive & players bounced off him.

Even better is that these two players are playing together now, even before they step on the Louisville Campus. They’re getting their feel for each other, and learning each other’s strengths and weaknesses and making up in an area where the other lacks. When they get to Louisville, they’re going to be well-acclimated with each other and will be two parts of the potent 2014 Louisville front court.
One veteran scout says U of L recruit Quentin Snider of Ballard High best all-around point guard in 2014 class. http://t.co/24RG7FFzsq
