    Marshall County Hoopfest 2017

    I know of a few teams that will be playing it this year such as Adair County, Marshall County, Graves County, University Heights, Hopkinsville, McRacken County, Henderson County, and Lexington Catholic. Does anyone know of more teams that will be playing or when a schedule will be released?

    The rumor I have heard is that Adair County will play Spartanburg (SC) matching Zion Harmon and Zion Williamson.

    That will be bad news for Adair.
    Williamson is a man child and they will have no-one that could remotely guard him.

    The 9th ranked junior in the nation DJ Jeffries who was offered by Kentucky last week will be playing in it as well. He plays for Olive Branch Mississsippi.

    This is from Larry Vaught's Website:
    "While exact pairings for the four-day event Nov. 30-Dec. 3 have not been released, several sources have confirmed one Dec. 2 game that will match Zion Harmon, the top-ranked player in the 2021 recruiting class, against D.J. Jeffries, a top 20 player in the 2019 recruiting class. Both are UK recruiting targets.Kentucky plays Harvard at 3:30 p.m. EST on Dec. 2. But with an Adair-Olive Branch night matchup in CST, it should be easy for a UK coach — or coaches — to make the trip to Benton for this game."
    "It’s likely Lexington Catholic and Marshall County could play before Adair-Olive Branch. That’s significant because Catholic features senior forward Zan Payne, who averaged 15.1 points and 8.8 rebounds per game last year while shooting almost 50 percent from the field. His father is UK assistant coach Kenny Payne and it would seem like a perfect scouting trip to see Harmon and Jeffries the same night his son plays. Marshall has a new coach — Terry Birdsong— for the first time in 11 years and the game should draw a lot of interest.

    "And what about if the final game of the night featured Johnson, a five-star wing player with a scholarship offer from Kentucky. He’s ranked among the nation’s top 15 players in the 2018 recruiting class and one of the top shooting guards after averaging 19.7 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in the Nike EYBL last summer. He played at Huntington Prep last year but is back home in Virginia at Oak Hill Academy this season."
