Conclusion

This was a well-attended event, well organized and extremely entertaining.  There were some excellent teams and outstanding players performing in this event.  Brandan Wright (Oak Hill Academy), slated to attend North Carolina, is as good as advertised.  The Scott County-Brentwood Academy matchup was a well-played exciting contest.  Harmony Prep and Oak Hill Academy entertained the crowd with an impressive array of dunks before their game and followed up with an impressive contest.  It was a good weekend for the home community as the Bourbon County boys and girls both won their games and the Paris girls defeated Mercer County.  However, the Paris boys team lost their game to Highlands.
