There’s something burning in Dionte Rains right now. His summer AAU season didn’t produce the playing time or the notice and offers from college coaches he had hoped.

This got the 6-foot guard, rated No. 61 in the Prep Hoops Indiana Top 180, motivated to put in the extra work.

“I didn’t get to play that much and (the summer) didn’t go as I planned it to, but that sparked a fire in me,” Rains said. “I get up in the morning and put in work and I’m getting extra shots in practice, too. I think it (this high school season) is going to go real well actually.”

That extra work will help Rains build on the notice he did gain this summer. He heard from places like Ball State, Northern Arizona and Toledo. Most recently he has been in contact with Stony Brook and Lincoln Memorial.
