This was an excellent day of basketball with some excellent teams and players on display today. The coaches did a great job of experimenting with player roatations and working hard to get prepared for their season openers. Rick Bolus and Bullitt East coach Chis Stallings did an excellent job organizing and keeping the event on schedule.
Please note that above scores came from combining the total halves on the scoreboards and above statistics are not official but were recorded by me personally merely to indicate the flow of the game. The rebounding statistics from the Sacred Heart came from Bob Tonini of Sacred Heart.
