  10. See him in the Chad Gardner Law King of the Bluegrass December 19-23 at Fairdale High School.
  11. The KOB will be Dec. 19-23rd this year, below are the participating teams. Kentucky Teams: Trinity Madisonville-North Hopkins Male Ballard Clay County Collins Fairdale LaRue County McCracken County North Oldham Sheldon Clark South Oldham Bardstown 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.
  12. Please don't under estimate how much we appreciate all the great teams and players across the state of Kentucky. It has been our tradition for 39 years to have 12 kentucky schools and four out-of state teams. It's not easy making the selections...this year it was extremely tough picking the Kentucky schools and even tougher selecting the out-of-state schools. Just this week I had three schools from outside Kentucky wanting to participate. We absolutely like the teams mentioned above but sometimes we must make tough decisions based on paying the expensive. The 2019 field has teams from western Kentucky (McCracken County and Madisonville North Hopkins) and two teams from eastern Kentucky (Clay County and Sheldon Clark...now Martin County) that have great fan following...but tough to make the trip before Christmas. We think all four of these teams will be ranked in the Top 20 preseason. Now...in an effort to pay the bills we need good teams with some very good all-state canidates that will not only bring their fans but will also draw a crowd. Sorry, but some shools just draw better than others and we don't even break even when the gate reciepts won't pay the bills. We are so thankful to all our sponsors...or we couldn't have this event. Sometimes we make mistakes...but for the past 38 years I think we have done a great job of selecting the teams. Last years KOB had five states represented: 5 States...5 in Final Four Trinity - Kentucky State Champions Brentwood - Tennessee Runner-up - Division II / Class 2A Evanston Township - Illinois Runner-up - Class 4A South Shore - New York City - PSAL AA Champions (New York City) - State Runner-up South Miami - Florida Class 9A Final Four
  13. In my opinion, the greatest player to ever play high school basketball in Kentucky, "King" Kelly Coleman passed away today. I was at a gathering in Wayland two weeks after the state tournament. About 50 of us got together because Kelly was not doing well. Late in my career I had the pleasure of spending some time with him at several events. My heart is filled with prayers for all those in Wayland and around the state. I do not know what the arrangements are at this time.
