INDIANAPOLIS -- Most young players are good at two things: taking the ball to the basket and/or knocking the down the 3-point jumper. But in the case of ESPN 25 small forward Mario Kegler (Jackson, Miss./Callaway), his ability to hit his mid-range jumper is what makes his game special. And he's been proving that this week at the adidas Invitational.
"Mario can get his own shot in the mid-range areas at will. He is a tough matchup," said AAU coach Omhar Carter of MBA Hoops.
Many high-major college programs feel the same way about Kegler, who already has offers from Ohio State, UCLA, St. John's, UNLV, Oklahoma and Texas and is receiving strong interest from Duke and others.
