The KOB will be Dec. 19-23rd this year, below are the participating teams.
Out of State Teams:
Wycote Bishop McDevitt (PA)
Miami Palmetto (FL)
Trotwood Madison (OH)
By mutual agreement Brentwood Academy will not be playing in this years tournament. We immediately added Bardstown.
Please let me explain.
Two years ago Brentwood had a contract to the attend the KOB with their McDonald's All-American Darius Garland. His father, Winston Garland, played in the NBA, an college basketball at Missouri State in Springfield, Missouri. The Bass Pro Classic invited Brentwood Academy to play in their tournament in January. Because of THSAA rules they could not play in both the KOB and the Bass Pro. Missouri State was going to honor Winston and they requested that we allow them to go to Springfield so Darius could be in attendance when he was honored. We immediately let them out of their contract. Darius was the 5th pick in the 2019 NBA Cleveland Cavaliers.
On Tuesday Coach Hubie Smith called me an said that he was retiring and that his two best players had transferred...one was a top 20 junior Randy Brady. Coach Smith's assistant got the job and they both agreed that in fairness to the KOB they would be willing to drop out of this years tournament.
Brentwood Academy is one of the top programs in Tennessee and they will certainly be back in the KOB in the future.
