Please don't under estimate how much we appreciate all the great teams and players across the state of Kentucky.

It has been our tradition for 39 years to have 12 kentucky schools and four out-of state teams.
It's not easy making the selections...this year it was extremely tough picking the Kentucky schools and even tougher selecting the out-of-state schools. Just this week I had three schools from outside Kentucky wanting to participate. We absolutely like the teams mentioned above but sometimes we must make tough decisions based on paying the expensive. The 2019 field has teams from western Kentucky (McCracken County and Madisonville North Hopkins) and two teams from eastern Kentucky (Clay County and Sheldon Clark...now Martin County) that have great fan following...but tough to make the trip before Christmas. We think all four of these teams will be ranked in the Top 20 preseason. Now...in an effort to pay the bills we need good teams with some very good all-state canidates that will not only bring their fans but will also draw a crowd. Sorry, but some shools just draw better than others and we don't even break even when the gate reciepts won't pay the bills. We are so thankful to all our sponsors...or we couldn't have this event.
Sometimes we make mistakes...but for the past 38 years I think we have done a great job of selecting the teams.
Last years KOB had five states represented:
5 States...5 in Final Four
Trinity - Kentucky State Champions
Brentwood - Tennessee Runner-up - Division II / Class 2A
Evanston Township - Illinois Runner-up - Class 4A
South Shore - New York City - PSAL AA Champions (New York City) - State Runner-up
South Miami - Florida Class 9A Final FourAdvertisement

Only team I may have tried to add would have been Fern Creek but there's plenty of talent.
