2008 Spalding Hoophall Classic -- Best of the Rest

Matt Simpkins (#73 Scout, #47 Rivals) played very little here in Springfield, and did not appear to want to be here in the time that he did see on the hardwood. Starting the game on the bench, he showed some awful body language out on the floor, often casually walking up the floor even with his future head coach in college (John Calipari) watching him from front row. The athletic forward scored his points on a few inside conversions, not showing any real perimeter skills for a player who is attempting to eventually become a wing forward.
