Blackmon Jr.'s debut delayed

The official high school opener for phenom-to-be James Blackmon Jr. was pushed back a week.

The Bishop Luers freshman guard and Indiana recruit will be on the court for the first time in a Knights' uniform Saturday at Mishawaka Marian.

So curious fans will have to wait to see the son of Luers coach James Blackmon Sr.

The 2008 and 2009 Class 2A state champions will then play Purdue recruit Rapheal Davis and South Side next Friday and then Anderson at the Wigwam next Saturday.

The season opener Nov. 27 at Muncie South was canceled because of the school's participation in the 2A state football championship a day earlier and with some players in both sports.

That game will not be rescheduled.
