This was an excellent well run event with several teams getting the opportunity to play in Rupp Arena.  The girls 7th and 8th grade middle school championships were very exciting and was well attended by their fans.  Several of the high school teams were missing players due to football playoffs and various other reasons.  These were scrimmages for the high school teams and the coaches were using this as a teaching tool and to experiment with various player rotations to prepare for the upcoming season.



A special thanks to Jared Prickett, Ken Farley, and the rest of the KBA staff for putting this event together and making it enjoyable for both the teams and fans.

November 29, 2010


Bryan Station coach Mike Allen started the following lineup: 6-3 Jr. Marcus Williams, 6-2 Sr. Deon Renfro, 6-2 Sr. Ray Roberts, 6-3 So. Larry Morton, and 5-9 Jr. Darius Waide.  Lafayette coach Greg Coldiron countered with 6-4 Sr. Tanner Napier, 6-5 So. Nick Trisko, 6-7 Fr. Jackson Davis, 6-1 Sr. Dee Yarbrough, and 5-8 Fr. Charles “Snoop” Johnson.

Bryan Station won a 68-66 overtime thriller over Lafayette in a game which matched March tournament time for intensity.  Bryan Station looked like they would have a relatively easy victory as they led 33-23 at halftime.  Lafayette battled back and cut the deficit to two; 47-45 after three quarters.  There were several lead changes in the final quarter and Jackson Davis tied the game 62-62 for Lafayette with a field goal in the lane with approximately 17 seconds remaining in regulation.  Bryan Station held for the last shot but Larry Morton missed a long three point shot at the buzzer.

The score was tied 66-66 with 29 seconds remaining in overtime with Lafayette in possession and the Generals called a timeout.  There was a wild melee when the ball was knocked loose.  The ball was thrown into the backcourt and Bryan Station’s Marcus Williams caught it and hit a layup at the buzzer for a 68-66 win.  This was the first game of the season and at times the play was ragged as would be expected but the intensity and excitement would be hard to match anytime.  Bryan Station was hampered tonight by foul problems with 6-7 Sr. James Evans who recorded five personal fouls in only 3:34.

Bryan Station shot 41.5% from the field including six of 15 from the three point line.  The Defenders connected on eight of 17 free throws, pulled down 40 rebounds, and scored 21 points off 23 Lafayette turnovers.  Lafayette shot 36.1% from the field including three of 19 from beyond the arc.  The Generals connected on 19 of 22 free throws, pulled down 43 rebounds, and scored 22 points off 21 Bryan Station turnovers.

Deon Renfro led Bryan Station with 22 points and six rebounds.  Larry Morton added 15 points and six rebounds.  Marcus Williams chipped in with 13 points and nine rebounds.

Jackson Davis led Lafayette with 22 points, 11 rebounds, and three blocked shots.  Nick Trisko added 13 points and 13 rebounds.  Tanner Napier and Dee Yarbrough each recorded 12 points.

Nelson County


Coach Kelly Wood’s Lady Cardinals finished 18-11 last season playing in the very competitive 5th Region.  Coach Wood faces a rebuilding job as he graduated four starters including 6-3 Samantha Drake who holds the school’s scoring and rebounding records.  The Lady Cardinals will be young this season and should be led by 6-3 So. Cierra Drake and 5-9 So. AJ Lewis.




The Lady Bulldogs finished 5-18 last season and Jeff Sparks takes over as coach to lead Male in the 7th Region battles this season.  The Lady Bulldogs should be led by 5-7 Sr. Ashley Spratt who should put up good numbers this season.  Other players expected to contribute include 5-9 Jr. Andrea Owen and 5-7 Sr. Monique White.  The Lady Bulldogs have a good mixture of experience and youth.




Coach John Kyser’s Lady Chargers finished 20-9 last season and should be very competitive in the 7th Region this season.  6-3 Sr. Lenette Holt averaged double digits in both scoring and rebounding last season.  Other players expected to contribute include 5-6 Sr. Chasity Bell, 5-7 Sr. Aisjah Roan, and 5-5 Jr. Danielle Betts.


Bullitt East


Coach Chris Stallings’ Lady Chargers finished 27-4 last season and despite losing key players to graduation should again be a contender for the 6th Region title.  6-2 Sr. Lindey Young should be a force in the paint and they have an experienced point guard in 5-6 Sr. Jessica Philpott.  Other players expected to contribute include 5-11 Sr. Meredith Polson, 5-7 Sr. Whitney Stansbury, 5-8 Jr. Ashley Duvall, and 5-9 Jr. Nikole Isabel.

Jill Buntin and 5-6 So. Landon Brefeld are expected to contribute this season.




Coach Ron Ferch’s Rockets finished 17-11 last season and will lead a young team into the 7th Region battles this season.  Coach Ferch expects big seasons from his guard tandem of 5-9 Sr. Maggie Hartlage and 5-8 So.

Sacred Heart Academy


Coach Donna Moir’s Valkyries finished 17-14 last season in a hard-luck campaign in which three projected starters suffered season ending injuries.  This year’s squad is senior dominated and should challenge for the 7th Region title.

5-4 Sr. point guard Maddie Peabody (9.8 ppg) is quick, a good penetrator on offense, and can shoot the ball.  5-11 Sr. center Morgan Clemons (12.4 ppg 8.6 rpg) is a skilled performer and scores in a variety of ways.  5-11 Jr.  Annamarie Campbell has a good mid-range shot and is an excellent defender.  5-11 Sr. guard Monica McGreal (7.3 ppg) creates matchup problems on the perimeter.  5-5 Sr. Hannah Washle is an excellent defender and 5-5 Sr. Katie Bishop scores well from the perimeter.

Other players expected to contribute include 5-6 Jr. Jade Tubb, 6-1 Jr. Jazmin Smith, 6-0 Jr. Olivia Niehoff, 5-9 Jr. Sandy Gahafer, 5-6 Jr. Erica Walsh, 5-7 So. Kristin Matula, and 5-6 Fr. Raven Merriweather.

5-8 Sr. Juliann Miller (13.1 ppg) was the leading scorer last season and should lead the team this season.  5-5 Sr. Lauren Faris and 5-8 So. Whitney Hartlage are expected to have excellent seasons.  5-10 Jr. Christine Roush and 5-11 Jr. Courtney Roush are also expected to be key contributors this season.  There are several other players on the roster capable of stepping up and having very productive seasons.




Friday November 19th


I will, for the sake of clarity, give scores for both halves and the combined score.  Any stats included are not official, but for the most part recorded by me personally.  I don’t put a lot of stock in scrimmage scores as each coach approaches the scrimmages with different goals.  Please understand that these are scrimmages and coaches are experimenting with substitution rotations and using this event as a teaching tool and to prepare for the upcoming season.  Also, since the games are divided into halves with the score being erased after each period, the coaches treat each period as a new game for teaching purposes.

This was an excellent day of pre-season basketball, with both JV and varsity squads playing today.  There was some excellent talent on display today both veteran and underclassmen.  Bullitt East was missing 5-8 Sr. point guard Jessica Philpott who is recovering from ACL surgery and is expected to return later in the season.  The advertised stars played well as expected and several other players impressed today.  Sara Hammond (Rockcastle County) is one of the leading candidates for Miss Basketball and she was very impressive today.  Rebecca Greenwell (Owensboro Catholic) is already one of the very best players in the state and has three full seasons to go.

Mercy is the defending state champion, graduated some key performers but looked impressive today and will be a top contender again this year.  Sacred Heart is a veteran talented squad and Rockcastle County has good talent to go with Miss Hammond.  Clay County will be good again and Whitney Belle Jackson should enjoy an excellent senior campaign.  Assumption’s Dee Dee Sliter had an excellent performance as well as Aisjah Roan  (Jeffersontown) and Ashley Spratt (Male).  Cierra Drake (Nelson County) had an impressive summer and played well in this event.

Lauren Tibbs (Scott) had a very impressive outing and is as good as advertised.  Franklin County will contend in the 11th Region and got good performances from Ashli Mayes and Chelsea Rivers today.  Bullitt East graduated several key players but will be a very solid team by tournament time.




A special thanks to Rick Bolus and Chris Stallings for all their hard work in making this event work.  I would highly recommend this event for any team looking for a high quality pre-season event to prepare their team for the regular season.  Any coach wishing to inquire about next year’s event may contact Rick Bolus at 502-543-7308 or by email at
