This past Sunday afternoon featured the second set of Prime Time League games with all six teams in action. Iowa Basketball’s Devyn Marble, Aaron White, and Josh Oglesby were all absent for Sunday’s contests. Marble and White were preparing for the World University Games tryouts this week in Colorado Springs, CO while Oglesby’s nonattendance isn’t quite clear at the moment. Still, there was plenty of action last week at the North Liberty Community Center as several Hawkeyes put on a show for the fans. Peter Jok and Adam Woodbury Jok and Woodbury are teammates on the Comfort Care Medicare/Mike Gatens Real Estate sponsored group. Jok continued his sweet shooting by dropping 22 points in the first game of the afternoon. The incoming freshman is averaging 27.5 points per game while shooting 46.67% from beyond the arc through his first two Prime Time League contests. That should aid a Hawkeye squad that finished 317 in the country in three point field goal percentage . They shot 30% from the field, only finishing better than 30 other division 1 programs. YIKES! Woodbury benefited from Jok’s deadly jump shot. There seemed to be more room for the big man to go to work in the paint. Woodbury added a double-double to Jok’s scoring totals, tallying 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists, while shooting over 50% from the field. He seemed to show a better offensive feel for the game by letting things come to him, instead of forcing up shots. More importantly, Woodbury looked noticeably bigger. It looks like he’s been hitting the gym this summer in attempt to add some much needed bulk. Free throw shooting still plagued the big man on Sunday, but that will come along in time. Jok and Woodbury seem to compliment each other well on the court, and that’s a sign of good things to come for head coach Fran McCaffery’s squad in the future. Big men Gabe Olaseni and Woodbury struggled during conference play last year going against some of the premiere big men in the country. Jok’s three point shooting range should help space the floor for Iowa’s big men and penetrating guards. Open room in the post will aid a young group of Hawkeye big men develop their offensive presence down low. Anthony Clemmons and Mike Gesell The competition for playing time between Clemmons and Gesell has intensified now that Marble is projected to be McCaffery’s starting point guard for the upcoming season. The two sophomore point guards squared off in a head-to-head matchup at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. They went basket for basket while playing stingy defense. Neither player gave an inch to the other, in a palpably fierce summer league matchup. Clemmons finished with 25 points, 7 rebouds, and 7 assists. His outside shoot is improving as he converted 5-of-9 three point field goals. Gesell recorded a double-double putting up 21 points, 15 assists, and 3 rebounds, doing it all for a team in a losing 100-115 effort. Both young guards look more comfortable and confident on the court in the second year at the collegiate level. Their progress will help a Hawkeye team that struggled from the perimeter during Big Ten competition. Iowa  fans shouldn’t put too much emphasis on Prime Time League results since summer league competition isn’t necessarily top tier. With that being said, there are still important aspects to look out for during summer league games. Coaches and fans want to see players expand their games during the summer while working on certain elements of their skillset. It especially important for young players in their first or second years on campus to experience summer league action. These four Hawkeye young guns seem to be making strides in their games through the first week of Prime Time League contests, which should help an experienced and deep Iowa team find their way back into the field of 68.
