Lennox Erupts, Leads Truman Against Lutheran North

Kaimen Lennox of Truman High School is a man on a mission, wanting to show that he is more of a scorer this year than years before. Lennox proved that friday night in their win against Lutheran North out of St. Louis, finishing with 28 points, Lennox wowed many in attendance. Displaying his scoring prowess, elite court vision, and much improved defense. 

Lennox attributes his new found scoring mindset to his teammates. “I’m really trying to win the Direnna Award, so they continue to push me and back me up the most.” 

“Don’t sleep on us.”

That’s the message that Lennox is professing to everyone in the Kansas City Metro and the state of Missouri. Truman has a very talented team and veteran leadership, but they can’t seem to put it together in the early season. They’re a team that takes a few games to get them going and really find their identity, but they’re wanting to change that this season. “We never really have a statement win and we want to change that.”

To go with Lennox’s scoring ability, he has incredible court vision as well. Last night against Lutheran North he showed that, finding teammates in ways not a lot of players can. A few passes were jaw-dropping and simply amazing. It’s an attribute he prides himself on highly. 

“More people focus on the scoring and the wrong parts of the game,” said Lennox. “I want to get to the next level, I’m not the tallest or the most athletic so I have to focus on the intangibles.”

The defense from Lennox was most impressive last night, seeing he’s got quicker and able to slide his feet easier to stay in front of the player he’s defending. It’s a part of his game that he knows he wasn’t very good at so he really went to work on improving it. 

With the win over Lutheran North, it sets up a showdown against their crosstown rival in Wiliam Chrisman. The mindset heading into the championship game is all about having no fear. They believe this is their season and they’re going to go after anyone that’s in their way. 

But what makes the game tomorrow even more special is the match-up with his AAU teammate Isaiah Jackson. “We’re going to go at it, he’s still my brother, but I hope everything goes right.”

It’s going to be a battle, and a must-see game. 

The 2020 guard is a sought after commodity for colleges at the next level as well. Having heard from a majority of the local Division Two schools such as Northwest Missouri State, Washburn, & Drury. South Dakota State, Nebraska-Omaha, and Missouri State are also showing interest as well. 

Lennox has no timeline for making a decision, he just wants to find the right fit. Regardless, any school at whatever level he ends up at will be getting a steal and a great point guard.

RecruitLook Hoops will once again host the Larry Hughes Elite Camp on August 10-11, 2019 in St. Louis. This is an invite-only camp that will bring in some of the top high school basketball recruits from across the country. The two-day event will feature a mixture of 60 national recruits in the 2020, 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes – all getting the chance to learn from NBA-veteran and skills trainers.

NBA veteran, Larry Hughes, along with state-champion high school coach, Justin Tatum, will be the lead instructors for the Camp that will take place at Hughes’ brand-new facility.

Hughes has an impressive resume having played thirteen seasons at the highest level of professional basketball in the NBA. He was drafted by the 76ers in the 1st round (8th overall) of the 1998 NBA draft out of Saint Louis University, where he was named Freshman of the Year. Hughes was recognized as a versatile and athletic guard with strong defensive abilities, and was selected to the 2004-2005 All-Defensive 1st Team.

“Larry is passionate about spreading his basketball knowledge to the younger generation, which aligns with our vision and overall goal of RecruitLook Hoops,” says Mike Enright, Founder of RecruitLook. “It’s paramount that we have an influential partner like Larry to assist with the development of the next generation of basketball players.”

This camp will also feature wearable technology that is found in top-notch NBA facilities, including the RSPCT Basketball System to track shots, and the Kinexon’s sports technology cameras to measure player movement. All the data is tracked and logged into a digital locker, which will be shared to college coaches of all levels.

“We founded Larry Hughes Basketball Academy as well as our BTS (Basketball Training System) to develop athletes’ basketball abilities and basketball IQ — as well as their character and life skills,” says Larry Hughes, Founder of LHBA and BTS. “We share the same vision when it comes to assisting youth within the sport of basketball. We’re excited to build leaders on and off the court.”

The Larry Hughes Elite Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to showcase their skills against elite competition, while also learning more about the game of basketball and life-skills from special guests. In addition to the drill work and skills sessions the campers will receive, the camp will focus on teaching valuable lessons off the court.
