    Playing at Kentucky is the dream for many high school basketball players. Recently even Hillcrest Prep (Arizona) sophomore Josh Green, who only came to the United States two years ago from Australia, said he had that same thought growing up.

    However, playing at Kentucky can be as overwhelming at times as it is rewarding. Every game is on television and Kentucky fans are so passionate that they analyze — or maybe over analyze — everything about the team.

  • Dragons out fire Demons 87-63

    The South Oldham Dragons invaded Williamstown High School on Feb. 16, and shot the lights out on their way to an 87-63 victory.  
    The Demon’s Jon Jump hit a long three pointer from the wing to get the scoring started in the game but the Dragons came right back and went on a 10-point run before the Demons could score again in the contest.  
    It was a night where the Dragons, one of the best three-point shooting teams in the state, drilled 16 shots from beyond the arc.  

  • St. Henry defeats Lady Demons 60...

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the only player in Kentucky’s 2017 recruiting class who is not a five-star recruit. The Hamilton Heights (Chattanooga, Tenn.) point guard is a four-star but ESPN national recruiting director Paul Biancardi is a fan and thinks he will do well at Kentucky.


    Players often come to play basketball at Kentucky now to enhance their NBA draft status. It’s something coach John Calipari sells to players as he points to the draft picks he’s had and how well many of them are doing in the NBA.


    Grant, WHS to face off in districts

  • Lady Braves win over Oldham
  • WHS loses 89-87 in battle with...
  • Cardinals swarm Braves

    The Grant County Braves boys’ basketball team hosted the number two ranked team in the state, the Scott County Cardinals, on Feb. 9.
    It was not a good evening for the Braves, who were soundly defeated 84-34.  

    The Cardinals jumped on the home team early in the contest with a 7-0 lead, which forced the Braves to take a timeout to regroup.
    Zach Tuggle got the Braves on the scoreboard with a backdoor cut to the basket on the inbounds play.


    One of the more unique football recruiting stories has to be Abule Abadi-Fitzgerald and his journey from Nigeria to the University of Kentucky.
    Steve Fitzgerald has been a high school basketball coach in Florida for 20 plus years. He once helped a friend find a school for a Nigerian basketball player who had been in school in Miami only to have the school shut down.
    “The next time my friend went to look for kids to come to the U.S. to play basketball, he found a couple and contacted me,” said Fitzgerald.
