The Vincennes University men's basketball team, coming off an NJCAA championship season, previews its 2019-20 season with its 28-team jamboree Sunday.
The Trailblazers play three times, facing Rend Lake at 1 p.m. and Mineral Area at 3 p.m. on the P.E. Complex main floor, and Aspire Prep PG at 5 p.m. in the Student Recreation Center.
Seven games are scheduled on an hourly basis starting at noon and ending at 5 p.m. The other floors being used are P.E. Complex West, Beless Gym, and four of the Student Recreation Center courts. Other Region 24 teams playing are Lincoln Trail, John A. Logan, Olney Central, Lake Land, Shawnee, Southeastern Illinois and Kaskaskia.
Among the players competing is junior college's No. 1 rated Jaylin Scrubb of John A. Logan, a recent Louisville commit, who is drawing NBA scouts in Sunday as he may opt to enter the 2020 NBA draft. The Volunteers play the first game on the main court at noon against Cuyahoga.
VU has two of the top-25 players rated in the preseason, Kevin Osawe and Craig Porter. Also playing is 6-10 Gethro Muscadin of Aspire Academy, who is drawing interest from Kansas and Louisville.
