    Thanks so much. Hope someone will give recaps. I would love to go, but my mom is staying with us and I can't leave her. So I really would appreciate any news on teams and players.

    Tournament is off if I believe. KBA put a statement out this morning saying all their tournaments and stuff is cancelled and money will be refunded .

    Just read an article from 36news that was posted 9 hours ago that mentioned all leagues will be postponed a week but the state tourney will go on. Might be a bit harder to find a home for a big tourney like that, than just a league or two. Stay tuned.

    Here is the link to the story: Funny on KBA website they still have it scheduled for this week end and they were using gyms in Lexington don't understand why they need to postpone it a week. They must have a reason I guess.

    Got over to watch game with the wife and they were charging $7 for a summer league game. I asked if that was for the whole tournament and it was only for the one game this evening. This was the only varsity game two other games there tonight were just JV games. We went and had ice cream instead they were several other people who came up and said the same thing no thanks. I would think $3 to $5 dollars would be more than fair. They charged schools a entry fee to play. Also would be interested to know how much (if any) they are paying the Fayette Co. schools for using their gyms.

    I went to watch LCA play tonight with two other adults and 1 child. We paid $26. Unbelievable! It’s no wonder the KBA went under. It’s a summer basketball game people.
