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.
Ballard's Quentin Snyder is one of the top players nationally in the class of 2014 and college coaches are starting to take notice. Over the weekend the 6-foot-1 point guard picked up his first scholarship offer.
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.
Bullitt East's Derek Willis is one of the top young players in the state. The 6-foot-8 sophomore has improved tremendously since last season and he has the potential to be a special player. Last week the Chargers participated in the King of the Bluegrass. I caught up with Bullitt East coach Troy Barr at the tournament and spoke with him about Willis
Trinity's Darryl Hicks is sitting out this season after transferring from Shelby County but that hasn't stop college coaches from pursuing the 6-foot-4 shooting guard. I caught up with Hicks last week at the King of the Bluegrass.
The 2010 King of the Bluegrass came to a close Wednesday night and while it may have been cold outside, the action was red hot inside Fairdale High School. Here is a re-cap of the day's act.
The stars were out once again Tuesday night at the 30th annual Canfiled Development King of the Bluegrass. Several players had outstanding games, including Eastern's Remy Abell.
