    So the first time kids should play on the college floor should be the state tournament? That doesn't seem like it would make for a good transition.

    Also, you haven't been to many region games if you think the college gyms are half empty. They aren't playing them at UL or UK they are playing them in college arenas that are not much larger than the one we are discussing in this post.

    I will use my influence to see if that can be arranged.

    It has 2 video boards. Time clocks on top of ball goals, concession stands with pork chop sandwiches.

    Watch the video below it will show you more. It is even more state of the art than I expected. A top notch high school gym in the state. The 10th region is blessed to have it.

    It took us a while to get Coach Truck focused once he found out about the pork Chops... but if you are a high school basketball fan put this arena on your visit list!

    I was looking forward to seeing the gym if not this season but for sure next season when Frederick Douglass would be there but I guess it will be two years now. GRC this week asked Douglass to let them out of their game at Douglass on Feb. 18 so they could try and get another regular season home game this year.

    They picked up Boyd County from the 16th Region. They said they were hosting the district and regional in their gym and hadn’t shot to well so far and wanted another game in it if possible before the post season.
