    I hate it for the entire team and coaches. I know they had higher expectations for this year’s team but you can’t win them all.

    Much love from me always to the coaching staff. Steve Adams, Dennie Webb, Brian Britt, Jeremy Britt and my dude Darryl Adams. I’ll miss you guys and thanks for everything. I’ll always appreciate everything you guys have done and tried to teach Baby J. Love you guys always!

    To Bryce Slone, my guy, my dude...keep your head up. There’s no doubt in my mind that you will be successful in whatever you choose to do in life. I’m grateful to have gotten to know you and your family very well over these last 4 years. You are welcome to travel with us anywhere at anytime. Our doors are always open for you. I’ll miss watching you play but I look forward to seeing what the future holds for you. Love you Bryce!!!

    To Will Bramel, Big Willie Style!!!! Your footwork has always been special and I knew that from the first time I watched you play in the 8th grade. I’m so happy that those feet got you to Purdue University to play for Jeff Brohm. Know that my family will be watching you closely and look forward to seeing you out there on Saturday afternoons doing your thing!!! I’m grateful to know you and your family as well and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for you.

    To Reese Smith and Grant Hotchkiss...this is your team now and I know the team and program is in good hands with you two as leaders. It has been a true pleasure to watch you both grow from freshmen to sophomores and now juniors. You both have the talent and potential to pick up the pieces and finish the job. I also look forward to watching you both on the track, on the diamond and on the gridiron. You guys are the future and I am glad to have been able to witness the both of you play. Keep shining!

    To Baby J, well crap, not the finish that I know you wanted but Son I am so proud of you. I’ve been your biggest fan and your biggest critic and you made me eat all of my words this season. You had an outstanding year this season and I loved every minute of it watching you grow as a player. I’ll always cherish the time we have spent on the courts all throughout the state as you played the one game that you loved. Like I told you, it has been such a fun ride. I knew the day would come where we would embrace after a game and that there would probably be tears shed. Neither of us expected it to be tonight but life happens like that. I know much bigger things are in store for you going forward and I know that you know I am there for you every step of the way. Thank you for all the joy you have given me watching you perform on the basketball court. The memories I have of you on the court are memories I will cherish for forever. This chapter is closed and now it is time for us to make new memories in life. I love you Son. It’s been an amazing ride watching you play.
    Baby J was a heck of a player to watch. Crafty, and really worked at his game non stop. He was always a good driver of the basketball, but what impressed me this year in the 3 games I watched this year vs Garrard is how well he improved his outside shot. The kid shot it well this season, and that's a testament to his work ethic. I love seeing players improve their games, and Baby J was a 3 year starter for a storied program and has no reason to hang his head

    Tough loss. Sloan only plays 12 minutes with one basket. 15 turnovers, many unforced. These kids still played well enough to win in spite of foul trouble. Reese Smith unbelievable to go out with two broken fingers and still score 24. One was a complete break, I saw the x rays. The rest of the team has been tremendous also. Will, Baby J and Bryce have provided so many great moments. The other senior Matt Bodner has contributed at times and greatly in practice. You can't say enough about Grant Hotchkiss and his contribution to this team. Never giving up or giving in has been the thing that defines this team.

    When/how did Smith break his fingers? Was it his shooting hand? No matter, that's still impressive to be able to play through that.

    The last half of the Danville game and he knew the finger was broken, but refused to stay out of the game. He went on to score 10 more points in that game after the fingers were broken not counting the rebounds and defense that helped lead Boyle to the win against a tough, physical rival.

    Okay, I'll say it. The 5th foul on Slone is the worst call that I've ever seen in Kentucky high school basketball.

    Pathetically called foul very early in the 4th quarter to end Bryce Slone's career. Did it make a difference in the game? Had to.

    It made a huge difference in many ways.

    I've never seen it this bad. I understand that it's a difficult job and all but this year has been awful. I know people say that officiating doesn't win or lose a game......but hey go tell that to Bryce and his teammates.

    This Smith sounds like a tough kid-----one you'd definitely want on your team.

    Bryce handled it with dignity and class and after watching the video I have to see that he needs to be commended for the way he handled himself. I’d have gotten 2 technical fouls and been ejected. The fact that after they made it clear the foul was on him he went to the bench and didn’t say a word to the officials even though I know he had a lot he wanted to say.

    That official needs to be suspended. No way you get a call that WRONG. That official ended a seniors High School career. That's just bad.
