Since they typically practiced together on the first team, Jalen Hood-Schfino may not have encountered Trayce Jackson-Davis very often at the rim while they were teammates at Indiana.
But Hood-Schifino found out on Saturday evening why TJD is Indiana’s all-time blocks leader.
In their NBA preseason debuts, Jackson-Davis swatted his former teammate in a reunion in the paint at the Chase Center in San Francisco:
The block ➡️ the bucket

The Warriors won the preseason contest, 125-108. Both former IU players came off the bench.
TJD played 15 minutes and produced two blocks, two steals, a rebound and an assist on the evening.
Hood-Schifino played 23 minutes and scored seven points on 3-of-11 shooting. He added six rebounds, three turnovers, two assists, a steal and a block.
Meanwhile, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, members of the IU football team were front and center at a WWE event. Quarterback Tayven Jackson and others could be seen on a broadcast.

Offensive linemen Mike Katic and Bray Lynch, and safety Bryson Bonds could also be seen in the shot.
In case you don’t know, IU walk-on running back Declan McMahon is part of the WWE McMahon family. He’s the grandson of founder Vince McMahon, and the son of Shane McMahon.
McMahon could be seen holding a special IU belt on the video. Indiana also uses another custom-made WWE style belt as its takeaway prop.
