Basketball season is just around the corner and several of the state's top seniors will compete for the state's highest honor, being named Mr. Basketball. Here is a look at some of the top candidates.
Pleasure Ridge Park's Jake Simpson (pictured) scored 22 points, as the Panthers defeated Southern 79-56. Here are some other standouts from a busy Tuesday night around the city.
Western's Ryan Taylor is having a very nice senior season. The 6-foot-6 University of Louisville commit is averaging 24 points and 13 rebounds per game. This week Taylor and his teammates are playing in the Gaslight Holiday Classic at Jeffersontown. I caught up with Taylor at the tournament.
The High School basketball season is just around the corner and serval players from the Derby City have a chance to take home the state's biggest award, Mr. Basketball.
Ryan Taylor is one of the top prospects in the nation. The 6-foot-6 forward announced last week that he would be transferring from Indianapolis Lawrence North to Louisville Western to play for coach Paul Handley, who is also the player's uncle. I spoke with Handley about Taylor's game.
