    There wasn't much defense Friday night in Freedom Hall, but that's what you get when you have some of the Nation's top recruits playing in the Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic.

    A crowd of around 7,000 came into Freedom Hall Friday Night, mostly to watch the three Indiana recruits, one Louisville recruit, and a possible Kentucky recruit, as the white team defeated the black in a impressive score of, 130-127.

    Louisville recruit Terry Rozier (seen above) from Shaker Heights, OH took home MVP honors for the black team. Rozier finished with 16 points, 13 rebounds, four assists and three steals. He was 6-17 from the field.

    "It feels good," Rozier said, "Nice fans, Nice town and I had a lot of fun," Rozier commented.

    Rozier captured the attention of the Louisville faithful before the game even started. In the starting introduction, Rozier was introduced dawning a Louisville Flag as a cape (video below).

    "It was something me and my mom came up with," Rozier Said, "I defiantly had a lot of fun with that,"

    About Chris Hatfield

    I'm just a college kid from a small town in Kentucky, called Bardstown. I've watched Louisville Sports since I've said my 1st word and can probably tell you anything you want to know about them. Parents split and my Dad moved to Louisville when I was 10, instantly I was capitivated. Alas, the rest is history and here I am. In 20 years of living, I've been called alot of things, feel free to call me a writer- I'd like that.
